Fantasy Impact:

The procedure was performed by Dr. Andrew Dossett in Dallas and will sideline Paxton for 3-4 months. It's brutal timing with pitchers and catcher set to report so soon. Until we get a clearer timeline fantasy players should expect Paxton to miss a decent chunk of the season's first half.
