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.

The Yankees’ prized offseason acquisition started off sluggish, but a hot June and July that has seen him hit .373 and .370 during those months respectively while also slugging 10 home runs. His recent hot streak has been enough to potentially earn him his fifth All-Star selection and first on the Yankees. Stanton is eighth in the AL in home runs and his presence would be a welcomed addition to the star-studded AL squad.
