Yankees gets lefty start James Paxton from Seattle.
He has impressive stats, and he will be pitching during his 'walk' contract year.
He throws hard. Strikes out 7 a games, and only walks 1.5 a game.
1.10 WHIP - the last two seasons. That's great.

Yankees gave up Sheffield and some others for him.
He seems like a #1 or #2 for the Yankees, depending on how Severino bounces back.

Whatcha think?
What other moves does Cashman pull?

Go Yankees! I suspect they will sign one more pitcher and possibly Machado. I have mixed feeling about him. He is a great player but has quite a bit of baggage. I just hope they do not go after Harper. I do not think he would be a good fit in the club house.

Like it a lot if he can stay healthy. Now add Happ. 3 lefties with CC. and trade Gray for a versatile piece.

Great move. But this isn't his walk year really. He's arbitration eligible until 2021 when he's free

I would have liked to keep Sheffield but you have to include him in this trade so be it. Swanson might have found something this year but still projects as a back of the rotation guy and Thompson-Williams might have but it together with the increased power in A ball or he might have benefited in being a little older player in Low A ball. Quite frankly I am surprised they didn’t have to give up a little more and that the trade happened this early in the offseason.

Paxton gives them a front end starter. Now let’s get Corbin or Happ to close out the starting pitching and look for some bullpen help with Robinson and Britton being Free Agents.

Preferred Paxton over Kluber since he's lefty, and presumably, cheaper.

Sheffield may hurt us down the road, but since that's the only big name going, I'll live with it.
