McClendon: James Paxton doing well in recovery from forearm injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Thursday starting pitcher James Paxton is “progressing fine" in his recovery from a bruised left forearm, per MLB.com.

James Paxton (forearm) expected to resume throwing next week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

James Paxton sidelined after hurting arms in fall during agility drills


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Mariners pitcher James Paxton said Monday he hurt his forearm nine days ago when he fell during agility drills. He felt some mild soreness while throwing, but X-rays and an MRI came back negative.

Paxton has been held out of workouts the last few days, but he is not seriously injured. He is expected to be sidelined for a few more days before he starts throwing again.

“He actually hurt both arms,” general manager Jack Zduriencik said, per MLB.com. “He fell and grabbed himself. His left arm is a little sore and his right arm, we’re not that concerned about. But both of them, he kind of braced himself and jammed it. So no sense pushing it. We’ll let him get treatment, let it quiet down and get him out here as soon as he’s ready.”

Paxton said his foot got caught on the artificial turf in the workout area at the team’s spring complex in Arizona. He called it "an unathletic moment for me."

“You get here and ‘C’mon, you’ve got to be kidding me,’” he said. “I busted it getting ready for this and now something like this happens. It’s putting me back a little and it’s frustrating, but I just have to take it one day at a time and get ready to go for when it matters.”


Report: James Paxton sits out Monday due to minor forearm issue

Mariners SP James Paxton focused on pitching for entire season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton has spent the offseason in Seattle in order to work on a regular basis with the team's training staff. Paxton is looking for ways to improve his durability after he missed several months in 2014 due to a strained lat, per MLB.com.

"It's been great. I've been living in Kirkland, so I'm in here every day working out at Safeco," Paxton said. "I've really got into a routine working out with our trainers here. They've got me doing some things, and my body is feeling really good.

"My goal and focus the whole offseason has been getting myself ready to pitch for an entire season and stay healthy and make all my starts. I'm doing whatever they ask me."

Part of Paxton's offseason routine includes participating in yoga sessions four times per week.

"This year, I've focused on it more and tried to do it a little more often, so I can really loosen up those muscles," he said. "It's hot yoga, so I'm sweating buckets in there. It's a workout as well as stretching."


Report: Dodgers insisted on Mariners' Walker, Paxton in Kemp deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2014) The Mariners and Dodgers were close to a deal that would have sent outfielder Matt Kemp to Seattle before the Dodgers insisted on receiving either Taijuan Walker or James Paxton in the trade, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

This turn of events reportedly happened before the Mariners brought Nelson Cruz into the fold, making it seem less likely that the team would acquiesce to the Dodgers' demands at this point. However, the Mariners' one big need heading into the Winter Meetings remains run-producing right fielder who can bat right-handed, and if they ultimately don't wind up signing Melky Cabrera, a Kemp trade could conceivably end up back on the table at some point this offseason.


Mariners' James Paxton will not throw competitively during offseason


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said starting pitcher James Paxton will not throw competitively during the offseason, according to MLB.com. Paxton was limited to 13 starts this season due to a lat injury.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
