The Seattle Mariners trade LHP James Paxton in exchange for LHP Justus Sheffield (#31 prospect in MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 Prospects), OF Dom Thompson-Williams and RHP Erik Swanson.
Well, the Yankees got exactly what they needed. They got an ace. And a left handed one at that to go alongside right handed pitchers Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka. While the Mariners started their quest to rebuild their farm system. They very nearly got the Yankees #2 Prospect Forrest Whitley, but NYY decided against it. The Yankees are not done looking for starting pitchers, and the Mariners are not done selling.
Grade for NYY: A
Grade for SEA: A-
Grade for Overall: A
