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.

Adam Warren placed on 10-day DL, Holder recalled

This morning the Yankees recalled right handed pitcher Jonathan Holder from AAA Scranton. The corresponding move was veteran righty Adam Warren being sent to the 10-day disabled list with a right back strain. Holder made the Yankees opening day roster but struggled mightily in the Bronx posting a whopping 20.25 ERA in three games while posting a record of 0-1. Holder was sent down after his poor performance against Baltimore on April 6th. The 24-year-old righty will look to get things back on track in this weekend’s final two games against Toronto. Holder will be active for today’s 1:05 game.

Warren who pitched last night and gave up a home run to former Yankee legend Yangervis Solarte has been his usual solid dependable self this season. In eight appearances he has posted a 3.24 ERA. Warren solidified last nights’ game from getting too far out of hand after another sub-par performance by starter Sonny Gray. He pitched 2.2 innings while surrendering only the solo homerun to Solarte. The team hopes that Warren’s stay on the DL will be just for the minimum 10 days.
