Paxton (5-3) gave up three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out nine over seven innings in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.
The lefty looked more like himself in this one, especially in the early going, as he struck out six over his first three innings while sitting comfortably in the upper 90s with his fastball. He wasn't quite as sharp later in the game, and Maikel Franco's homer in the seventh ultimately sent Paxton to his third straight loss, but he matched a season high with the nine strikeouts. Paxton has been adamant in recent weeks that he is fine physically, but he felt his mechanics were off.
Paxton gave up nine hits and four runs (three earned) over 5.1 innings against the Tigers on Wednesday, striking out eight and walking two.
He missed a lot of bats, but Paxton also saw a lot of his pitches get hit, which is why he threw 101 of them in this relatively short outing. After getting off to a red-hot start, Paxton spent most of May on the DL, and he hasn't quite been the same since returning. With his numbers having declined into mediocre territory, this might be a good time to swoop in with a buy-low offer.
Paxton (5-2) coughed up seven runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over 3.2 innings in Friday's 10-4 loss to the Rangers.
He threw only 52 of 91 pitches for strikes, and the left-hander has now walked exactly three batters and given up at least three runs in each of his last three starts, sending his ERA soaring to a still-strong 3.23. Paxton will look to turn things around Wednesday at home against the Tigers.
Paxton (5-1) took the loss Sunday against the Blue Jays, giving up four runs on eight hits over four innings. He walked three batters and recorded three strikeouts.
Josh Donaldson homered off Paxton in the first and the left-hander could not recover from there, although he did not receive much offensive help either during Seattle's 4-0 loss. It was also Paxton's first loss of the season, but he has now failed to advance past 5.1 innings in all three of his starts since his return from the disabled list on May 31. Regardless, he remains one of the Mariners' top-end starters for the time being.
Paxton (5-0) gave up three earned runs on five hits, three walks and two wild pitches over five innings in Tuesday's 12-3 win over the Twins. He struck out four.
Although he was less than sharp, the current de facto ace of the Mariners' rotation was able to notch his fifth victory thanks in part to some robust run support. Paxton gave up his first home run of the season to Brian Dozier in the fourth, while the three earned runs he surrendered were his second highest total of the season. Control problems led to 96 pitches over just five frames, an early exit and Paxton issuing multiple free passes for the second time in the last three starts. He'll look to turn in a more efficient performance when he takes on the Blue Jays next Sunday.
