Early-Season Grades for MLB's Top 15 Offseason Acquisitions
Gerald Herbert

From Jose Abreu to Masahiro Tanaka, it's time to dish out early-season grades for MLB's top 15 offseason acquisitions. 

Of course, nobody likes to get graded—especially after less than a couple of weeks on the job. So, because the sample sizes are so small to this point in the season, 2014 performance won't be the only grading criteria.

I will also consider how the player fits into his team's plans for the current season. Plus, the grades will take into consideration how likely a given star is to continue his strong early performance or, conversely, rebound from a poor start to 2014. 

Now, let's take a look at the early-season report cards for MLB's top 15 offseason acquisitions.
