Mariners manager Servais expects plenty from lefty Paxton

PEORIA, Arizona (AP) Forget the batter's box, pitching mound or anywhere else between the chalk lines of a baseball field. According to Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais, the location of one of the biggest obstacles blocking a player from consistently excelling isn't on the diamond. ''A lot of it with that last hurdle is between your ears,'' Servais said at the Peoria Sports...

Under the Greydar: The Inevitable James Paxton Column

Way back in January, when the very first signs of ADP data sprouted out of the ground, I went down the rabbit hole, hoping to catch a glimpse of early signs of value. ADP at that point was more convoluted than forming an expectation for how much Pablo Sandoval would weigh coming into Spring Training, but since it was the only sign we had as to the 'market' rate for various players...

Daniel Norris Is Mid-Breakout

I talk about James Paxton a lot. I talk about him a lot because I like him a lot. I’m probably the biggest Paxton fan on staff. I might be the biggest Paxton fan on the continent. It wouldn’t surprise me to learn I have more confidence in 2017 James Paxton than James Paxton does. Why am I losing my mind over a 28-year-old with less than 300 big-league innings? This is basically...

NERD Game Scores: James Paxton Refulgent Pitching Event

Devised originally in response to a challenge issued by sabermetric nobleman Rob Neyer, and expanded at the request of nobody, NERD scores represent an attempt to summarize in one number (and on a scale of 0-10) the likely aesthetic appeal or watchability, for the learned fan, of a player or team or game. Read more about the components of and formulae for NERD scores here. *** Most...

James Paxton’s New Angle on Life

This past Monday, against Cleveland, Seattle left-hander James Paxton recorded the highest single-game average fastball velocity of his career, at just under 99 mph. While sources differ on the matter, it was at least a mile per hour harder than his previous single-game high, which he’d established in his previous start (and season debut) at San Diego about a week earlier. Jeff...

James Paxton Was Horrible and Promising

The Mariners started James Paxton on Wednesday because they had to put Felix Hernandez on the disabled list with a hurt leg. That’s bad! Paxton proceeded to get lit up, by literally the San Diego Padres. That’s worse! Here, watch Paxton give up an opposite-field dinger to Wil Myers: Familiar enough. Here’s last year’s Paxton giving up a dinger to Eduardo Escobar: There’s...

Mariners' Paxton down 20 pounds at start of camp

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Many teammates saw James Paxton for the first time in months on Friday, and something was missing from the big left-hander. About 20 pounds, actually. Paxton reported to Seattle Mariners spring training with pitchers and catchers having shed weight, and his new physique has him looking forward to a season of good health. Paxton has been in the opening day rotation...

Pitcher Profile: James Paxton’s Back Baby!

The big fellah is back!  And um, I don't mean me... In one of my most anticipated starts in the past few months, James Paxton returned from the DL, immediately unleashed back into the Mariners rotation.  No Taijuan Walker waffling for you!  Paxton looked dreamier than my Andrew Heaney [what turned out to be] nightmare in his first two starts way back in April, flashing high...
