Mariners' James Paxton: Allows four earned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paxton (8-3) allowed four earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out nine across seven innings to take the loss Saturday against the Rockies.

Paxton allowed only one earned run through 6.1 innings but stumbled in the seventh inning, allowing a three-run home run to put a damper on his outing. Still, it wasn't a disastrous outing as he allowed only eight baserunners and struck out nine batters. Over his last three starts, Paxton has pitched a combined 22 innings and struck out 30 batters, giving him a safe floor on a start-to-start basis.

Mariners' James Paxton: Dominant in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paxton (8-2) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out 11 across eight scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday against the Royals.

Paxton generated 27 swinging strikes in Sunday's dominant effort, his second-highest total for the season. Though he was going against one of the weaker lineups in the league, his ability to rack up strikeouts is nothing new and his 145 on the season rank fourth in the American League. While he did stumble in consecutive starts against the Red Sox and Yankees, Paxton has stayed healthy this season and emerged to be a reliable asset.

Mariners' James Paxton: Fans 10 in win over Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paxton (7-2) picked up the win against the Orioles on Tuesday, striking out 10 and allowing two runs on six hits over seven innings. He issued one walk.

Paxton was actually lined up for the loss when he exited the game, but thankfully the Mariners offense rallied for two runs in the top of the eighth inning. The 29-year-old has a 3.65 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with an impressive 134:30 K:BB across 103.2 innings, and is slated for an appetizing matchup against the Royals on Sunday.

Mariners' James Paxton: Hit hard by Yankees in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paxton (6-2) took the loss Thursday against the Yankees, surrendering four earned runs over 5.0 innings. He registered nine strikeouts but also surrendered two home runs and three walks.

The Yankees were aggressive with Paxton early and it paid dividends as New York plated all four of its runs in the first inning. He gave up a leadoff single to Clint Frazier before serving up a home run to Aaron Judge to fall into a 2-0 deficit two batters into the game. He was also taken deep by Miguel Andujar before finally escaping the inning by striking out Greg Bird. Velocity wasn't an issue for Paxton; he was able to consistently hit 96 with his four-seamer and touched 97. However, it was another shaky outing overall for Paxton, which makes it two in a row after getting shelled by the Red Sox in his last outing. Paxton built up too much goodwill in his first 14 outings for owners to be overly concerned by two shaky starts, but his next outing against Baltimore will establish whether the recent hiccups are a trend or an aberration.

Mariners' James Paxton: Rocked by Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paxton lasted just 2.1 innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday, giving up six runs (five earned) on six hits, striking out four and walking one before the Mariners rallied for a 7-6 victory over Boston.

The big left-hander has been performing like an ace this season, but he didn't have it in this contest, with most of the damage against him coming courtesy of a three-run homer he served up to Boston shortstop Xander Bogaerts. Paxton is still having a great year, with a 3.44 ERA, a 1.06 WHIP and 115 strikeouts over 91.2 innings, so this should be considered a bump in the road for the time being. He'll look to right the ship in a tough matchup against the Yankees on the road next Thursday
