Oh no… Pitchers and Catchers aren’t even in Tampa yet and the Yankees are already down a major piece.
I mean, thank god it’s not Cole. But this Yanks team was crushed with injuries last year. Please don’t let this be a start of that again.
Yankees fans knew that Paxton was injury prone when the team traded for him. He had an.. Eh, ok first season in the Bronx. But when he was on, he was lights out.
No much more so than his massive start at home in the ALCS to send the series back to Houston.
Thankfully the Yanks got Cole to be their Ace. But now after Sevy and Tanaka with no Big Maple, the Bronx Bombers will need two youngsters to step up in the rotation.
If nothing, it will make Spring Training competitive.
