Mariners get the news on James Paxton and it’s pretty much what they expected | The News Tribune

Great, brittle talent.

Club officials hinted at the seriousness of the injury Thursday in characterizing it as a strained muscle, which indicated they suspected it was torn to some degree. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam Friday confirmed the strain.

“I was talking to Dr. (Edward) Khalfayan,” Paxton said, “and he said it’s a very rare injury to see in pitchers. I feel like I’ve had enough of those.”

Paxton spent time on the disabled list in each of the past four years and has yet to make more than 20 big-league starts in any season. He missed nearly four weeks in May because a strained forearm muscle.

Losing 4 to the Angels--when the starting pitching did fine!--is even more devastating than this injury. The M's look toasty.
