Mariners' James Paxton: Activated from disabled list

The Mariners activated Paxton (pectoral) from the injured list in advance of his scheduled start Friday against the Astros, Greg Johns of MLB.comreports.

Paxton is ready to return after missing over a month with his chest injury. He will only be allowed to throw around 50 pitches, so it will be difficult for him to qualify for the win unless he is really on top of his game. That is at least possible, however, as he has allowed the Astros to score just one run in 20 innings over three starts against Houston this season.
