Paxton (forearm) was placed on the 60-day injured list Friday. The team announce earlier this week the 32-year-old will require Tommy John surgery, so it was only a matter of time before he moved to the 60-day IL.

Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed Tuesday that Paxton (forearm) will require season-ending Tommy John surgery, Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. This was the expected outcome for Paxton before he opted to get a second opinion. With the lefty now on track to have the elbow procedure in the near future, he'll likely be sidelined through at least the middle of the 2022 season. Set to turn 33 in November and with a number of previous injuries on his medical record, Paxton may have difficulty landing anything more than a minor-league deal if he opts to continue his career after the surgery.

If he does ultimately undergo the procedure, Paxton is likely to be sidelined until at least the middle of the 2022 season.
