Major League Baseball’s trade deadline has come and gone, and as the dust settles it appears two former Arizona Wildcats have been moved on Wednesday.

The first was relief pitcher Mark Melancon, who went from the San Francisco Giants to the Atlanta Braves. Then just after the 1 p.m. PT deadline it was reported that the Toronto Blue Jays and Houston Astros made a trade that included former Arizona outfielder Cal Stevenson:

Stevenson, 22, was a 10th-round pick of Toronto in the 2018 MLB Draft. In 149 minor league games he was hitting .325 with 7 home runs and 81 RBI, batting .298 with 5 homers, 50 RBI and 50 walks in 90 games at Class A Dunedin (Fla.) this season.

In two seasons at Arizona, after transferring from Chabot College in California, Stevenson hit .302 with 5 homers, 46 RBI and a .433 on-base percentage.
