NEW YORK – Left James Packton bought jans from Seattle Mariners for a triple prospect Monday, prompting a slim rotation that contributed to the loss of New York's Boston in the AL Division.
New York sent left-handed Justus Sheffield Mariners along with right-wingers Eric Swanson and outsider Dom Thompson-Villiams.
Pakton turned 30th to November 6th and went 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA in 28 starts last season, including a striker in Toronto on May 8th. Pakton, a proud Canadian, is also known for keeping his calmness as a bald eagle mishandled on his shoulder before starting in Minnesota in April.
It is connected to the rotation projected to include right-wingers Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka and leftist CC Sabathia.
Pakton earned $ 4.9 million last season and is entitled to salary arbitration. He can become a free agent after the 2020 season.
Sheffield was rated among the first League leagues, made his debut in the big league in September and set up three games for Iankees. He had a 2.48 ERA in 25 small league appearances at Double-A and Triple-A this year, hitting 123 in 116 innings and allowing only four domestic races.
Sheffield will not turn until May and could become a future anchor in the Seattle rotation.
Swanson, 25, started the year in Double-A Trenton, but spent most of the year 2018 at the Triple-A level with Scranton / Wilkes Barre, where he started 13 starts and had 3.86 ERAs. Swanson had 78 rebounds and 14 walks in 72 1/3 innings at Triple-A. He placed 121 2/3 total injections last season in total placement and was among the top 25 placements in the MLB.com organization, Iankees.
Thompson-Villiams, 23, never played above Class A, and next April he will turn on April 24th. He had 22 domestic actions, 20 stolen bases and an average of .299 in two Class A clients this year.
