Sounds like Sheffield was Yankees' #1 prospect, with Swanson being in their top thirty. I hope they are MLB ready.

They are. Sheffield was just held back for service time purposes and Swanson was leapfrogged by Tarpley.

Sheffield played a bit for Yankees I believe Swanson pitched pretty well in AAA and is 25, so he is MLB ready. Whether he sticks as a starter, or he moves into the bullpen is another question though. I assume he gets a chance to compete as the 5th starter. Tell me if I should be excited about him Yankee fans. Also, tell me about the OF. Seems he is somewhat speedy. Still only in high, A, but hit .290 there this year. Not a lot of pop though.

Swanson is probably a RP long term. Williams is solid, has the potential to be a starter in the OF, Sheffield is gonna be a stud.

Paxton only has 2 years of control and you're wasting one of those years during a year of our dynasty period (2020) so I don't see why it's worth it to give away Sheffield but whatever.

He immediately solidifies our rotation and allows our other prospects to develop without being rushed. Paxton has been coveted as long if not longer than Didi was by the Yanks.
Corbin is another guy the brass has long coveted.
