James Paxton has Dodgers guarantee lowered to $7 million

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher James Paxton has had his one-year deal with the club, originally for $11 million, lowered to $7 million due to an undisclosed health issue.

Fantasy Impact

While injuries have been the No. 1 concern throughout the left-hander's career, the issue that has popped up seemingly hasn't deterred the Dodgers from walking away altogether. Paxton enjoyed what was a solid season for the Red Sox in 2023, posting a 4.50 ERA in just 96 innings but a late-season collpase skewed that figure. Performance bonuses kick in if Paxton makes the Opening Day roster and makes at least 18 starts in 2024.
