Paxton (elbow) has progressed to throwing a bullpen session and is ahead of schedule in his recovery from elbow surgery, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Paxton was throwing off flat ground in mid-March, and he's apparently advanced to mound work over the past couple weeks. The veteran left-hander is returning from Tommy John surgery in April of 2021 and hadn't been expected to see game action until the middle of summer, but it's possible he'll be ready to return a bit earlier.
