Paxton has posted the fifth-best K% (30.4) and FIP (2.95) among all starters with at least 200 IP in the past two seasons. Yet last season's 160.1 IP comfortably set a personal high. He holds a career 3.87 ERA away from Safeco Field, so pitching in Yankee Stadium could offset the potential wins boost. Know your league before deciding whether to sacrifice quantity for quantity from a top-20 starter.

James Paxton traded to Yankees

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports the Yankees have traded for Mariners ace James Paxton.

Fantasy Impact

Thus begins this winter's hot stove. Paxton was fantastic on a per inning basis in 2018, striking out 208 batters in just 160 1/3 innings pitched. His 3.76 ERA was up quite a bit from the 2.98 mark he registered in 2017, but this is the type of pitcher who can lead a staff. The only problem for him has been health. His 160 1/3 innings last year were a career high. The Mariners are receiving three players in the deal, including one of the Yankees' top prospects Justus Sheffield.
