Mariners' James Paxton: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paxton agreed to a one-year deal with the Mariners on Friday, avoiding arbitration, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.

This was Paxton's first year as an arbitration-eligible player. The terms of the agreement were not announced. He is a trendy breakout candidate this season, as he showed velocity gains and posted a 2.80 FIP in 20 starts last season, which was not reflected in his 3.79 ERA.

Mariners' James Paxton: Strikes out eight in victory over Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paxton (6-7) allowed three runs on six hits, struck out eight and walked one over 5.0 innings in a victory over the Astros on Wednesday.

Seattle's offense spotted him six runs in the first two frames, so there wasn't any real need to push Paxton on Wednesday. He threw 91 pitches, 66 of which were for strikes. In his final three outings, he posted a 11.37 K/9 rate. Overall, Paxton finishes 2016 with a 3.79 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 117 strikeouts in 121.0 innings.

Mariners' James Paxton: Throws gem against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Paxton allowed one run on five hits and one walk Friday with seven strikeouts in seven innings in a win over the Twins.

With better defense, he might not have given up any runs. In his last three starts, Paxton has a 2.25 ERA with 19 strikeouts and two unintentional walks. Paxton's summer was interrupted by forearm tightness and then a broken fingernail, but since July 22, he's allowed no more than two runs in six of 10 starts. In Friday's game he easily pitched in the high 90s and had excellent command of his curveball. The bigger question is whether this latest run is a sign of Paxton finally harnessing his potential or merely a hot streak.

Mariners' James Paxton: Gets no-decision in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Paxton took a no-decision after allowing two runs on five hits and two walks with three strikeouts in six innings during Sunday's 3-2 win over the A's.

Paxton delivered his first quality start since August 7, but didn't factor into the decision as Seattle didn't plate the game-winning run until the ninth inning. He also got his ERA (3.97) back under four with the outing despite walking multiple batters for the first time since July 2. He'll look to build on Sunday's success when he takes on the Astros at home next Saturday,

Mariners' James Paxton: Takes sixth loss against Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paxton (4-6) allowed six runs (four earned) on nine hits despite striking out eight batters in 4.1 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Paxton's start was in jeopardy due to a torn fingernail suffered in his last start. It didn't seem like his grip was giving him too much trouble -- he was still nasty, with 15 swinging strikes powering his eight strikeouts. His defense didn't help, but Paxton was undone by a two-run homer from Jonathan Lucroy in the fifth inning, just the eighth he has allowed in 16 starts this season.
