3B Adrián Beltré has announced his retirement after 21 seasons. What a man on and off the field. After 21 seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Seattle Mariners, Boston Red Sox and Texas Rangers, Adrian Beltré has called it quits. He finishes with a .287 average, 3,166 base hits, 477 home runs and 1,707 runs batted in. A sure fire hall of famer, it’s going to be interesting if the committee gives Beltré first ballot entry.
The Yankees completed a trade yesterday to acquire left-handed pitcher James Paxton from the Mariners! New York sent three prospects to Seattle in the deal including their top prospect, pitcher Justus Sheffield. In six seasons with Seattle, Sheffield had a win-loss record of 41-26 and an ERA of 3.42. Yankees fans, do you like the win now move? #ATGSports
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
