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.

Yankees Call Up Brandon Drury for Boston Series


It was a mystery for much of Thursday as to who would be called up to the Yankees once Luis Cessa was sent back down after his start on Wednesday. Names ranging from Austin to Wade were all mentioned, however our questions were answered late Thursday night, when some news broke on Twitter.

It has been reported by Ken Rosenthal that Brandon Drury will be called up to the Yankees and will be available for the series against the Red Sox this coming weekend.


The predicament that Drury has been in this season has been unique, yet unfortunate to say the least, as he has gone from being the Opening Day starting third baseman to being an everyday player in Triple A. Of course, the rise of Miguel Andujar at third did not help Drury, yet when a player such as Neil Walker is struggling and still on the roster, it makes you wonder as to why Drury has not gotten his second shot yet. Drury originally went down early in the season, and it was soon discovered by the Yankees that Drury had been playing with blurry vision his entire career. In his time in Scranton, Drury dominated, sporting a .907 OPS and making the AAA All Star team.

Drury will have another shot to prove to the Yankees that he belongs on the 25 man roster this weekend against Boston, or at the very least, show other teams that he can play and raise his potential trade value.
