Trades aren't measured after only a few months, but since we can't jump in a DeLorean and see how it all pans out, here's a look at how the pieces in the Roy Halladay trade have performed in the short time since the offseason swap:

Pitcher Kyle Drabek, the centerpiece of the package Toronto received for Halladay, threw a no-hitter on Sunday for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Blue Jays' Double-A affiliate. The 22-year-old former Phillies first-round pick is now 8-8 with a 3.20 ERA for the Fisher Cats, with 80 K, 40 BB, and a 1.22 WHIP in 107 innings.

Catcher Travis d'Arnaud, 21, also acquired by the Blue Jays from the Phillies, is hitting .288 with 6 HR and 30 RBI for the Dunnedin (Florida) Blue Jays in High-A.

Outfielder Michael Taylor, 24, shipped from Philadelphia to Toronto and then to Oakland, is hitting .247 with 3 HR and 41 RBI for the Sacramento River Cats, the Athletics' Triple-A affiliate.

That's what the Phillies gave up to get Halladay. Here's what they got for Cliff Lee:

Pitcher Phillipe Aumont, 21, started the year in Double-A but was demoted to High-A after going 1-6 with a 7.43 ERA in 49.2 innings for Reading. He is 0-0 with a 4.91 ERA in 14.2 innings for Clearwater.

Outfielder Tyson Gillies, 21, is hitting .238 with 2 HR and 6 RBI in 26 games for Reading. He missed time with a hamstring injury earlier this spring.

Pitcher J.C. Ramirez, 21, was promoted to Reading after going 4-3 with a 4.06 ERA, 17 BB, and 55 K in 64.1 innings in Clearwater. In his three starts since the promotion, Ramirez is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA, 10 K, and 6 BB in 18.1 innings.

Halladay is 9-7 with a 2.42 ERA in his first year on the Phillies. He has 112 K, 17 BB, and a 1.11 WHIP in a league-leading 130 innings.

Lee is 8-3 in 103.1 innings and leads the American league with a 2.34 ERA and a 0.945 WHIP. He is also on pace to shatter the record for K/BB ratio with 89 K and only 6 BB.

Both Halladay and Lee were tapped to represent their leagues in the All-Star Game in Anahiem.

They're not the only All-Stars in the bunch, though, as Drabek will represent the Fisher Cats in the Eastern League All-Star game.
