|James Paxton feels good after first rehab start |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/19/14) Mariners pitcher James Paxton said after Saturday's bullpen session that he suffered no soreness after his first rehab start Thursday, the Seattle Times reports.
Paxton is expected to make two more rehab starts before being re-evaluated by the team, with the next one coming Tuesday with Triple-A Tacoma. He's been limited to two starts this season due to a lat injury.

(7/18/14) Mariners pitcher James Paxton will make at least two more minor-league rehab starts before he is re-evaluated, according to the Seattle Times.
Paxton gave up two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out two over 2 2/3 innings in his first rehab start for Class A Everett Thursday. He'll throw a bullpen session and make his next start on Tuesday for Triple-A Tacoma, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Paxton's velocity was reportedly 91 mph to 94 mph, though he struggled with his control, according to Prospect Insider. He's expected to move his rehab to Triple-A provided he does not experience any setbacks.

(7/17/14) Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton (lat) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with short-season Class A Everett Thursday, according to the Everett Herald.
"I'm looking forward to seeing James come back," Everett manager Dave Valle said. "I'm excited for him because it's been a tough road for him to get back healthy again.
"The plan is for him to go three innings (Thursday) and hopefully he'll come out, put some good work in, and get ready to get back to the big leagues. We're just looking for him to come out of it with no problems. He's coming off that injury and (the Mariners) want to make sure he's building up his stamina and pitch count."
If all goes well Thursday, then Paxton will move his rehab assignment to Triple-A Tacoma.
|James Paxton nearing rehab work |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/14) Mariners pitcher James Paxton completed another bullpen session Saturday, as he continues to work his way back from a lat injury. Paxton is expected to start a minor-league rehab assignment next week, manager Lloyd McClendon told MLB.com.
|It's near impossible to reconcile what James Paxton did during a four-start stint in the majors last year with his Triple-A numbers. Yes, he was pitching in the Pacific Coast League, a hitter-friendly environment that has warped its share of stat lines, but he didn't have the problems most other pitchers do. His home run rate was as low as ever, and his walk rate -- which sometimes suffers as a by-product of a rising home run rate -- actually dropped. Considering it's the only blemish on his record, though, he deserves the benefit of the doubt. Paxton's stuff speaks for itself. He throws a fastball in the mid-to-high 90s and features a curveball that's a legitimate out pitch. Like many young left-handers, he has had control issues, but those seem to have dissipated and weren't at all an issue following his promotion. He'll have to compete for a job following the offseason signing of Scott Baker, but if he wins it, he'll be a sleeper in all formats. Even if his relatively low profile allows him to go undrafted in yours, you'll want to keep a close eye on him.
