Mariners SP James Paxton survives rocky sixth to earn win
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Red-hot Mariners lefty James Paxton had to wait a bit Saturday afternoon to find out if his record had been raised to 3-2, but three fine relief performances indeed clinched a victory for him in Toronto.
Paxton allowed two earned runs on four hits in six innings. He walked three and fanned four in lowering his ERA to 3.52.
It was two of those walks to start the sixth that nearly cost him the win. But he recovered to induce a popout and double play that ended his outing and started the waiting game.
Paxton has strung together five straight quality starts. He has surrendered just six runs on 21 hits in 34 innings during that stretch. He will seek to keep up the good work against equally hot Indians starter Corey Kluber next Thursday.
M's starter James Paxton throws eight scoreless IP in Sunday's win
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/17/15) Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton (2-2) did not allow a run in eight innings of work Sunday, scattering five hits in a win over the Red Sox.|
Paxton allowed one extra base hit in the gem, a seventh-inning double to Brock Holt.
The right hander has now stretched his scoreless streak to a career-best 20 innings.
"It's no secret," said Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon to MLB.com. "Command the fastball and you're going to win and it's going to make all your other pitches better. And when you're commanding a 98-mph fastball, it's going to make everything else special. I thought you saw that today."
Paxton struck out two and walked two, throwing 105 pitches in the outing.
Paxton's next start is set for Saturday in Toronto.
Mariners SP James Paxton gets back on track, picks up first win
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton got back on track and picked up his first win of the season Tuesday night against San Diego.
Paxton (1-2) allowed three hits and walked five while striking out five over six scoreless innings of an 11-4 victory. Of his 109 pitches, 64 strikes.
Paxton has allowed five earned runs over his last four starts (24 2/3 innings). He will look to secure his second win of the season Sunday at home against Boston.
Mariners' James Paxton settles for no-decision vs. Angels
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/6/15) Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton turned in a sharp outing but had to settle for a no-decision Tuesday night against the Angels in Anaheim.
Paxton permitted a two-run home run to Albert Pujols in the opening frame for his only damage of the evening before settling down. He was charged with two earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out one over seven innings of a 5-4 defeat. Of his 91 pitches, 51 were strikes.
Paxton has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his last three starts, but has yet to pick up his first win of the season. He will seek win No.1 on Tuesday at home against San Diego.
McClendon on James Paxton: 'I feel good about where he is right now'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton heads into Tuesday's start against the Angels coming off a very promising start against the Astros.
Paxton had a few rough outings after a strong performance in his first start April 7 against the Angels, but manager Lloyd McClendon feels Paxton is on the right track after missing time during the spring due to a forearm injury.
"I feel like he's been building since the injury in spring training. I feel real good about where he is right now," McClendon said, per MLB Network Radio.
The lefty pitcher is 2-2 with a 2.67 ERA and 0.82 WHIP in five career starts against the Angels.
|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.
