KANSAS CITY ROYALS

July 2001: Traded Jermaine Dye to Rockies for Neifi Perez.

Dye ended up in Oakland after this three-way deal, and Perez played only one full season (2002) with the Royals. Dye had hit 33 homers in 2000, but Kansas City didn’t get much value for him in the end.

LOS ANGELES ANGELS

July 2010: Acquired Dan Haren from Diamondbacks for Patrick Corbin, Rafael Rodriguez, Joe Saunders and Tyler Skaggs.

The Angels finished under .500 in 2010 even with Haren, but he went on to go 16-10 the following year and is still with the team. The trade for Greinke probably at least rivals this one.

LOS ANGELES DODGERS

May 1998: Traded Mike Piazza and Todd Zeile to Marlins for Manuel Barrios, Bobby Bonilla, Jim Eisenreich, Charles Johnson and Gary Sheffield.

Sheffield was a terrific hitter for the Dodgers for a few seasons, but Piazza would reach the World Series with the Mets two years later.

MIAMI MARLINS

May 1998: Traded Mike Piazza to Mets for Geoff Goetz, Preston Wilson and Ed Yarnall.
