Mariners rehabbing P James Paxton removed from Triple-A start
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/2/15) Mariners left-hander James Paxton was considered to be one healthy rehab start away from returning to the big-league mound. But a monkey wrench might have been thrown into those plans.
Paxton was removed in the fourth inning of his outing Wednesday for Triple-A Tacoma. He left the mound with the trainer looking at a finger on his pitching hand. He had been sidelined for more than three months with a finger injury.
It remains to be seen if what appears to be a setback will prevent him from joining the Mariners in the near future.
SP James Paxton finally nearing return to Mariners
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/1/15) Mariners left-hander James Paxton, who has been out for more than three months with a finger injury, is closing in on a return. He will start Wednesday for Triple-A Tacoma, then join the club when it comes home on Sept. 7, per MLB.com.
Paxton will return with a 3-3 record and 3.70 ERA.
Mariners SP James Paxton (finger) makes rehab outing
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/23/15) Mariners starter James Paxton, who has been on the disabled list since May due to a finger injury, made a rehab start for Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, throwing 35 pitches in 2/3 of an inning.
Paxton allowed two hits and a walk in the first inning, and was pulled before the frame was over once he reached his limit. This is the latest in a long series of steps in order to get Paxton back in the Mariners' rotation, and he will likely made more rehab starts before his return.
Mariners' James Paxton (finger) to begin rehab assignment Sunday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/21/15) Mariners starter James Paxton threw a 30-pitch bullpen session on Friday, and no problems were reported. Paxton is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, according to MLB.com.
Paxton has been out of action since the end of May due to a finger injury.
Mariners SP James Paxton throws simulated game Tuesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/18/15) Mariners pitcher James Paxton reported no issues after throwing two innings during a simulated game Tuesday, reports MLB.com.
"It felt great," he said. "I just wanted to get the ball down, execute a few pitches and overall have no pain at all, which is what I had. So that was great."
Paxton was able to throw 30 pitches Tuesday and he will throw a bullpen session Thursday before determining if he can begin his rehab assignment. A finger injury has kept him out since late May.
"Two innings is like the beginning of Spring Training, but I feel better than I did in spring," he said. "My stuff is sharper, my pitches are better, I feel like I'm closer pitch-wise to the end of Spring Training."
|2014 summary: Come mid-September last year, James Paxton still had yet to allow more than three earned runs in a start as a big-leaguer. Of course, he wasn't pitching all that time, missing a four-month stretch in the middle of the year with a strained muscle in the back of his shoulder. He finally did allow eight earned runs in a start Sept. 22, inflating his ERA. Still, 15 starts that effective to begin a career reveals something about Paxton's ability.|
Playing time status: The shoulder injury was something new for Paxton. He had maintained good health throughout his minor-league career. Though he wasn't a lock to win a job last spring, his performance before and after the injury makes him a lock for the Mariners starting rotation now and a valued part of their future, judging by some of the offseason trade chatter.
2015 outlook: Paxton was a fairly high-profile prospect in the Mariners organization, but perhaps because he was overshadowed by Taijuan Walker, his performance to begin his career has caught Fantasy owners by surprise. And the injury should cast enough doubt to make him still plenty affordable on Draft Day. He's no sure thing, of course -- no pitcher with less than a full season to his name is, but the stuff, pedigree and performance all point to greatness. If he lasts beyond the top 50 starting pitchers, he's a steal.
