James Paxton gives up two runs in win on Sunday

James Paxton gave up two runs on eight hits with one walk and struck out seven batters over six innings to pick up a win against the White Sox on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Paxton is now 4-3 on the season with a 3.93 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 71/21 K/BB. The veteran lefty should be owned in all leagues but does have a tough matchup in his next start against the Astros on Friday.

James Paxton gives up six runs in loss to the Mets

James Paxton was handed the loss after surrendering six runs on seven hits over 2 2/3 innings during Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets. He struck out one and walked two.

Fantasy Impact

This was Paxton's worst start of the year as he seems to be struggling since coming back off the IL with knee issues. It still could be bothering him and it would not be surprising to see some news come out. For now, Paxton is lined up to face the Rays on Monday.

James Paxton (knee) likely to return Wednesday

James Paxton (knee) has been cleared to come off the injured list to start Wednesday versus the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

Paxton admitted last Friday that he’s still feeling some pain in his knee while pitching, but he’s willing to pitch through it. Fantasy owners might want to leave him on the bench for this first start back.
