Seattle WA USA Seattle Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton throws out a pitch against the Toronto Blue J

The Yankees have acquired left-handed starter James Paxton from the Seattle Mariners.

NY is expected to target free agent pitchers Patrick Corbin and J.A. Happ - who was acquired via trade prior to the trade deadline last season - and place a higher priority on adding an additional starter compared to infielder Manny Machado and outfielder Bryce Harper, two of the biggest bats on the market this offseason, according to MLB Network's Jon Morosi. Paxton had the second-highest fastball velocity among lefty starters in 2018, behind only that of Cy Young victor Blake Snell, while going 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA and 208 strikeouts in 160 1/3 innings. He also struck out 208 batters in just 160.1 innings. He holds a 41-26 career record and a 3.42 ERA.

Justus Shieffield, the Yankees' No. 1 prospect, was reportedly among the three players included in the deal, according to's Greg Johns. He can become a free agent in 2021. "I'm talking about high-end and elite, as close to elite as we can get".

In return, Seattle picks up a top-end pitching prospect in that of Sheffield. "But having those larger chunks the last couple years has really allowed me to come into my own and really make some big strides, and I look forward to continuing to make big strides in my game".

Paxton deal to Yankees is for Sheffield, OF Don Thompson-Williams and RHP Erik Swanson. He was the Yankees minor league system's leader in home runs (22) and Runs Batted In (74).

"I can't tell you we've learned anything further other than we drill down as much as we can, whether with players that have played with somebody as teammates that we know or coaches who have coached or people who have managed or anybody, whether it's all the way back in the amateur ranks", Cashman said. The left-hander will be a huge bargain for NY, having earned just $4.9 million in 2018.
