James Paxton left his first rehab start since Tommy John surgery after just two batters Thursday. He was diagnosed with left lat tightness and is going to meet with doctors to diagnose the severity of the injury. (

Manager Alex Cora stated this could be an obstacle to Paxton returning to the team in September, which was the current return timeframe.
