Breaking: Yankees acquire LHP James Paxton in exchange for LHP Justus Sheffield, RHP Erik Swanson, and OF Dom Thompson-Williams

The Yankees have made their first splash of the offseason by acquiring the Big Maple, James Paxton, from the Seattle Mariners. Fresh off his second-consecutive season at the top of the Mariner’s rotation, Paxton did not come cheap as the Yankees traded away their top prospect, Justus Sheffield, along with breakout prospects Erik Swanson and Dominic Thompson-Williams.

Yankee release Danny Espinosa


Per Jack Curry on Twitter, the Yankees have released infielder Danny Espinosa. Unlike other moves earlier today, this one does not come as much of a surprise now that the Yankees have Neil Walker, along with Espinosa's recent lack of success in the majors.

Espinosa signed a minor league deal with the Yankees, and hit just .160/.276/.320 in Spring Training, with one homer and four RBIs. His 2017 season was just as miserable, as he hit just .173/.245/.278 with the Angels, Mariners, and Rays, with six homers, 31 RBIs, and a insane 109 strikeouts in just 266 at bats. Overall, Yankee fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as Stephen Drew 2.0 will not make an appearance in a Yankee uniform in 2018.
