Scott Servais says James Paxton will have season-ending surgery.— Larry Stone (@StoneLarry) April 13, 2021 Might we see this guy in Seattle later this year? George Kirby @Mariners sat 98-100 (rumored a tick above.). Faced 8 thru the first 2 inn striking out 6 (2 team errors) Only hittable ball was Foscue who homered, but Kirby also got the best of him in an at-bat. Command all day & 3...

FanPost Friday: I can’t believe they weren’t Mariners!

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ It’s Friday, so let’s Remember Some Guys Well, the Mariners have been playing games that count for about a week now and things are looking a bit grim already. James Paxton needs TJ surgery, Jake Fraley and Evan White are out with leg injuries, large chunks of the lineup look utterly lost at the plate, and here we are with an off-day on a Friday because they refuse to put roofs on Midwestern ballparks (except Milwaukee, you’re cool and smart for doing that). So I’ve got a prompt to take our mind off current events. Let’s slip into what...

Photo by Stephen Brashear/ An emotional day for Mariners fans. Hello folks. It’s a sad morning in Mariners-land after yesterday’s James Paxton news, which I’ll just get right to here in case you missed it. Tommy John surgery has been recommended for James Paxton. Would miss the year snd be back in 2022.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) April 8, 2021 Yeah. Just such a huge bummer for a dude who seemed so happy to be back and pitch in front of a packed Maple Grove later this summer. Ugh. I really hope he’s able to somehow avoid the surgery, or that he is able to...

James Paxton needs Tommy John surgery

Photo by Steph Chambers/ Tommy John surgery recommended for Mariners starter James Paxton Tommy John surgery has been recommended for Seattle Mariners pitcher James Paxton, according to Jon Heyman on Twitter. Paxton was pulled Tuesday in the second inning of his season debut with what was described at the time as forearm soreness. This is a big blow to the Mariners and to Paxton. The 32 year old left handed pitcher has had success when he’s been able to take the mound throughout his career, but has struggled to stay healthy, never having pitched more than 160.1...

Double Trouble: Mariners at Twins Series Preview

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports The Mariners head out on their first road trip of the season beginning with a three-game series in Minnesota. Salvaging a win in the final game of their opening homestand is a small consolation for the Mariners. James Paxton’s elbow injury looms large and the prognosis doesn’t look good. With injury issues mounting, the Mariners will have to dig deep into their reserves — it’s clear the team won’t accelerate the timelines of Jarred Kelenic or Logan Gilbert now that they have open roster spots on the team. It looks like Evan White...

Mariners arise from ashes, pants White Sox 8-4

Photo by Steph Chambers/ it’s always the one that looks the worst on paper It was hard not to spiral a bit after last night’s unfortunate events. Losing both James Paxton’s power arm and the joy of the Maple Grove in one fell swoop was as big of a gutpunch as you can get, and topped off with an injury to one of the few productive hitters in Jake Fraley and a moribund 10-4 loss that came fifteen minutes short of lasting four hours, I don’t blame anyone for the bad vibes taking over. It’s early, we all know this, but injuries and piles of strikeouts are never...

Photo by Steph Chambers/ well, onward Even by normal Mariner standards, last night was pretty uniquely deflating. James Paxton exiting after just two dozen pitches and an electric first inning with the always ominous “left forearm strain”? A 10-4 - not so good, buddy - loss? Puke. Well, today’s a new day, a fresh start, and here’s to hoping the Mariners get off on the right f- courtesy of MarinersPR Well, then. Taylor Trammell starting against a lefty is something to keep an eye on, but I think he’s there more out of necessity than...

10-day IL for James Paxton, Jake Fraley as Mariners promote Braden Bishop, Ljay Newsome

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports A pair of injuries spur some early season roster shuffle. The Seattle Mariners announced two adjoined roster moves today after last night’s injuries, placing LHP James Paxton in the 10-day IL with a strained left forearm and OF Jake Fraley to the 10-day IL as well with a strained left hamstring. To replace them, Seattle promoted RHP Ljay Newsome and OF Braden Bishop, who were both at the club’s alternate training site, which in 2021 is... T-Mobile Park. Not the worst commute.

LOOK AT THESE BABIES | Photo by Otto Greule Jr/ Tonight Big Maple dons a Seattle uniform for the first time since 2018, and it’s hard not to be pretty, pretty hyped. James Paxton came on board after the 40 in 40 series was completed for this year, so he didn’t get one, and he also pitched mostly on the backfields in spring training, with only eight Cactus League innings. That means that we didn’t fix our beady little LL eyes too closely on Pax in pre-season, other than marveling over his 17 strikeouts in 8.1 innings. Obviously Paxton won’t be facing...
