NEW YORK (AP) – A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press the New York Yankees have agreed to acquire left-hander James Paxton from the Seattle Mariners for left-hander Justus Sheffield and two other prospects.
    
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the trade had not yet been announced.
    
Paxton turned 30 on Nov. 6 and went 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA in 28 starts last season, including a no-hitter at Toronto on May 8. He joins a rotation projected to include right-handers Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka and left-hander CC Sabathia.
    
Paxton made $4.9 million last season and is eligible for salary arbitration. He can become a free agent after the 2020 season.
