Mariners reportedly trade James Paxton to Yankees

James Paxton

The New York Yankees are looking for ways to upgrade their starting rotation this offseason, and they took a big step toward accomplishing that goal on Monday.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Yankees have acquired starting pitcher James Paxton in a trade with the Seattle Mariners.

Yankees No. 1 prospect Justus Sheffield is among the players who will be sent to Seattle.

The Yankees were one of several teams who were interested in Paxton, and it sounds like they beat out at least one of their biggest competitors for the left-hander.

Paxton, 30, has a career ERA of 3.42. He was 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA in 28 starts with Seattle this season, and he is still under team control for two more years. New York will likely look to add another starting pitcher before the winter is over, but Paxton is a great start.
