The New York Yankees Have Made A Blockbuster Trade

Report: Yankees acquire James Paxton in blockbuster trade

NY acquired James Paxton from the Mariners on Monday in exchange for left-hander Justus Sheffield, the organization's No. 1 pitching prospect, and minor league right-hander Erik Swanson and outfielder Dom Thompson-Williams.

In addition to Thompson-Williams, New York traded minor league pitchers Justus Sheffield and Erik Swanson to Seattle for Paxton, who was 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA last season, and tossed a no-hitter, mlb.com reported.

In his one game at Yankee Stadium, Paxton entered with a 10-start unbeaten streak and allowed two-run homers to Aaron Judge and Miguel Andujar in the first inning of a 4-3 loss on June 21 this year. "I've learned how to make sure those things don't happen". "They seem very committed to winning, and so am I", Paxton said.

Other free agent left-handers include Dallas Keuchel, Gio Gonzalez, Drew Pomeranz, Wade Miley and Derek Holland. "The intensity. That's why I play the game". "When I say 2020 and 2021, it's simply gauging the ages of the players we're building around here".

Sheffield won't turn 23 until May and could become a future anchor to Seattle's rotation.


Swanson, 25, had a 2.66 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over 121 2/3 innings (24 games, 22 starts) between Single-A, Double-A and Triple-A last season. A fourth-round selection by the Mariners in the 2010 MLB Draft who hails from just across the Canadian border in Ladner, British Columbia, Paxton spent six years in the majors with the Mariners, at times showing All-Star-caliber potential but also struggling with various injury woes. "They're always expecting to win, just like I do".

Thompson-Williams, 23, posted a.299/.363/.546 slash line with 22 home runs and 74 RBIs in 100 games at Single-A and Double-A combined in 2018.

The AL East arms race between Boston and NY seems to be heating up.

"We need multiple starting pitchers", Cashman said last week.
