a Lefty Starter Which You Can’t Find

Cool little nugget about Justus Sheffield from Jon Heyman of all people. I know… crazy, but true.  I took this link from Check it out:  

Clint Frazier and Justus Sheffield were the two headline prospects sent from Cleveland to New York in the Andrew Miller trade, and Heyman reports that some Indians staff believe Sheffield could be the bigger loss: ‘Sheffield is a lefty starter, which you can’t find, Frazier is a corner power bat, which you can.’ It’ll be several years before we can access how that trade worked out for either the Yankees or the Tribe, though needless to say, nobody in Cleveland has any regrets right now, given Miller’s dominance.”


Whatever the case, it’s both thrilling to know that these 2 kids came over and are almost major league ready.  We gave away a significant piece in Miller, and the fact that the Indians were able to give back top quality, could prove in the long run a win, win for both teams.  


In Tampa this season, Sheffield was 3-1 with a 1.73 ERA with 27 strikeout, 10 walks.  In Trenton, he appeared in just 1 game, pitching 4 innings and striking out 9.  He did not allow an earned run.


It’s exciting, and I had to share that nugget this morning.  Nice work, Heyman. Good luck, Justus!
