James Paxton to miss time with strained tendon in finger

Seattle Mariners left-handed starter James Paxton left his start early on Thursday with a 'twinge' in his finger, and that turned out to be worthy of a stint on the disabled list.  That was the word on Friday, when the club placed him on the 15-day D.L. with a diagnosis of a strained tendon in his middle finger (via Bob Dutton of the News Tribune).  The team is preparing itself...

Seattle Mariners left-hander James Paxton was forced out of Thursday night’s start against the Cleveland Indians after he experienced some ‘discomfort’ in the middle finger of his pitching hand.

Kipnis on Kluber: 'The guy knows how to pitch'

In his past three outings, Corey Kluber has delivered the results expected from last year's AL Cy Young Award winner. The Seattle Mariners' James Paxton has been effective for an even longer stretch and will try to outduel Kluber in Thursday night's series opener against the Cleveland Indians. Kluber hardly resembled the AL's top pitcher a few weeks ago, having lost four straight...

Seattle Mariners 3, Toronto Blue Jays 2: Cool Canadian Paxton controls the fierce Blue Jays offense

The Cool Canadian returned home to start an early game today, earning his 3rd win in as many starts. James Paxton had a rough start to the inning, earning a visit from McClendon early in the 1st inning. But the breather did the trick and the young hurler settled in for 6 innings of quality work. The M’s bullpen did their part, carrying the 7th-9th innings with dominance. Tom Wilhelmsen...

Mariners Blank Sox; Split Series

The Red Sox lead the series 2-1 coming into Sunday’s day game.  The Sox had knuckleballer Steven Wright on the mound vs. James Paxton for the Mariners.  Wright was recently called up to replace Justin Masterson in the rotation.  Wright gave up a few runs, but had himself a positive spot start.  However since the Sox offense couldn’t scratch out a single run against the Mariners...

Red Sox Notes: Steven Wright Lives ‘Life Of A Knuckleballer’ In Loss

This embed is invalid" /> Sorry, Steven Wright. Not today. While Wright pitched well Sunday against the Seattle Mariners, James Paxton pitched even better. The Boston Red Sox’s bats were silenced in a 5-0 loss at Safeco Field. It was a disappointing end to a so-so road trip for the Red Sox, who went 5-5 during their 10-game swing through Toronto...

SSU Baseball Recap: San Diego Padres 4, Seattle Mariners 11

Two of the things that stand out the most, from what I learned about pitching from Jaime Moyer’s biography, was what to look for when judging a pitcher’s current mental state and what they may or may not be possible of doing going forward.  Today, a mild May evening in the Emerald City, James Paxton took a 4-0 lead into the top of the 2nd and proceeded to walk the bases loaded...

Padres visit Nelson Cruz, Mariners for two-game series

After adding the league's top home run hitter to a largely unchanged 87-win team, the Seattle Mariners hoped for better than a sub-.500 record nearly two weeks into May. With continued improvement from their rotation, that shouldn't take long to turn around. James Paxton is next in line for the Mariners, who open a two-game series Tuesday night with the visiting San Diego Padres...

Angels vs. Mariners Series Preview: DISAPPOINTED

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, May 4

When last we spoke, I was recommending a risky Astros stack against James Paxton while rolling with Scott Feldman against Paxton’s Mariners. Sometimes stacking a team like Houston with a $5,700 starting pitcher works out great. Other times it doesn’t. On Thursday, it didn’t. Feldman and Alfredo Simon both flopped, and only one batter (Jose Altuve) topped 5.00 points. Bad days...

Jose Altuve hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th inning tonight to finish off the Mariner’s hopes. It was a tough pitcher’s duel all night between James Paxton and Astro’s starter Scott Feldman; both went 7 innings and left the game at a 2-2 tie. The tie would last until the 10th, when Altuve hit a single off the wall to end it. Paxton was on target tonight, lasting...

Checking in With James Paxton

Coming into the season, you might have had a three-part checklist for Mariners’ lefty James Paxton. Can he throw more high fastballs, can he improve his changeup, and can he hold his velocity and command?
