James Paxton returns to hill for Mariners
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/22/15) Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton, who has been recovering from a forearm injury, made his first start of the spring Sunday tossing 3 1/3 innings against the Rangers.
Paxton allowed five hits, issued one walk and struck out two batters while tossing 61 pitches. He hit a max of 95 mph on the radar gun.
Mariners SP James Paxton vows to be ready for start of season
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton vowed to reporters that he'll be ready for the start of the season, according to the Tacoma News Tribune. Paxton, who is working his way back from a forearm injury, pitched three simulated innings against minor-leaguers -- his first action of the spring.
"I felt like it was pretty good," Paxton said. "I was throwing some curveballs and cutters for strikes. I was moving the fastball around a little bit. I threw some OK change-ups…but I have some time to tighten those things up."
Manager Lloyd McClendon expects Paxton to make four Cactus League starts, starting on Sunday, according to ESPN 710 AM in Seattle. The left-hander believes that's enough for him to be ready for the start of the season.
"I'll be ready," Paxton said. "Absolutely."
Mariners' James Paxton (forearm) throws first live BP session
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/11/15) Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton (forearm) threw live batting practice Wednesday for the first time this spring, per MLB.com. Paxton threw 30 warmup pitches in the bullpen and another 30 to minor-league batters.
Paxton is expected to make his spring debut Tuesday against the White Sox.
"I feel real good. Healthy. Nothing is wrong with my arm," Paxton said. "When you get a guy in the box for the first time in six months, it's a little weird. A different optical thing. But it's good to get back out there and get that feeling again and get ready for games."
Mariners' James Paxton scheduled for March 17 debut
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Mariners pitcher James Paxton is scheduled to make his spring debut March 17, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Paxton threw his first official bullpen session Friday and reported no soreness in his forearm. If he can start March 17 as scheduled, he'd be in line to make four spring starts before the start of the season.
|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.
