Mariners SP James Paxton (finger) makes rehab outing


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) 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.

"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."

Mariners' James Paxton suffers finger injury Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"Obviously I'm not happy about it, but I'm staying positive and I don't think it's going to be anything too big, hopefully," Paxton said after the game, per MLB.com. "We'll find out tomorrow. Right now it has pretty good movement and it already feels better than it did an hour ago. Hopefully by tomorrow it'll feel much better."

Paxton gave up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and one walk in 4 2/3 innings while striking out four before being removed after striking out a batter in the fifth with none on and two outs. He came into the game on a three-start winning streak having allowed two runs or less in six straight starts, but he ran into trouble on Thursday, serving up a solo homer in the second inning before the Indians pushed three runs across in the fourth.

Paxton owns a 3.70 ERA and 45:22 K:BB ratio in 58 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Yankees on Tuesday if he can make his scheduled start.


Mariners SP James Paxton survives rocky sixth to earn win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) 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

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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) 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 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
(5/5/2015) 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.


Mechanical fix helps Mariners' James Paxton get back on track


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) After three poor outings, Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton bounced back Thursday to have his best outing since his first start April 7. He allowed two runs in seven innings and had seven strikeouts in a no-decision against the Astros.

"He threw the ball just like I thought he was going to throw it," manager Lloyd McClendon said, per MLB.com. "He was very, very good. He really commanded the zone pretty darn good. His pitch count was down where he wanted it to be. It was just an outstanding outing for him."

Paxton had some troubles early in the game, as he allowed the first two batters in the first and second innings to reach base. However, he allowed just one run in the first two innings, and the Astros went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position in the first three innings. 

Paxton, who allowed 21 hits and 16 runs (13 earned) in 13 2/3 innings in his previous three starts, said his struggles were because he was drifting toward third base. On Thursday, he tried to stay more direct to home plate.

"I was just staying on line, being aggressive and going after them with the fastball," he said. "Everything was working pretty good for me today."

Paxton struck out seven batters and walked two. He allowed two earned runs, five hits and now has a 5.74 ERA. His next start is projected for May 5 against the Angels. 

Reliever Dominic Leone earned the loss after giving up a walk-off single to Jose Altuve in the 10th inning. 


Mariners pitcher James Paxton earns another loss Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Mariners pitcher James Paxton allowed four runs, one earned, on five hits in 4 2/3 innings of work in Seattle's 8-5 loss to the Twins Saturday.

Paxton's defense betrayed him against Minnesota when he put two runners on base in the first inning before allowing a walk with the bases loaded to bring home a run. Paxton then gave up a solo home run to Eduardo Rscobar in the fourth inning.

Paxton then couldn't get out of the fifth inning, when after Trevor Plouffe reached on an error with Joe Mauer on first, Mauer scored on a Nelson Cruz single to center. Paxton gave up one more RBI single to Kurt Suzuki before getting pulled.

Paxton, now 0-2 on the year, boasts a 6.86 ERA in 19 2/3 innings this season. He will look to get back on track Thursday against the Astros.
