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.

BREAKING: Yankees call up Clint Frazier from AAA

The Yankees made a surprising move today, calling up outfielder Clint Frazier from AAA to join the team in Washington this week, confirmed by Joel Sherman of the NY Post and MLB Network. The headliner in the Andrew Miller trade in 2016, Frazier spent a short stint in the Bronx last summer with the Bombers, batting .231 with four HR and 17 RBI, but an oblique strain limited his time in the majors to only 22 games.

After the Giancarlo Stanton trade, it looked like Frazier was going to be the odd man out of the outfielders on the roster, and making matters worse; he suffered a concussion early on in spring training that kept him off the field until April. 

The righty slugger with legendary bat speed is terrorizing opposing pitchers on the minor league level, and with his versatility to play all three outfield spots, he made it tough to keep him in the minors. It is unclear what the corresponding move is at the current moment, but the Yanks just added another Baby Bomber to the lineup.
