Paxton will be out until at least early May (and likely longer) after undergoing a microscopic lumbar discectomy with removal of a peridiscal cyst in early February. Although his talent is undeniable, this is yet another in a long list of injuries for Paxton, who has eight injured list stints since the beginning of the 2014 season. While early May is the front end of the three to four month timetable, expect Paxton's absence to last until at least June and possibly longer if he has any setbacks.

James Paxton (back) progressing well

Yankees pitching coach Matt Blake told reporters that James Paxton is progressing well from February spinal surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Blake added that "overall, we feel really good about his progression so far". Paxton resumed throwing back on March 11th, just a couple of days before spring training was suspended. This is obviously good news for the 31-year-old southpaw, who should be ready to pitch whenever baseball resumes.
