Seattle (Associated Press)-Left-handed James Paxton left his second game with the Mariners due to uncomfortable pitching elbow after only 24 shots against the White Sox on Tuesday night.
M suffered 2 injuries and lost to the White Sox 10-4 after the Abreu Grand Slam
After he left the game, the Mariners announced a preliminary diagnosis in Paxton̵
After the Mariners lost 10-4, manager Scott Servais referred to the injury as a forearm strain and said he would have an MRI on Paxton on Wednesday.
In the second game, Paxton threw a 92 mph fastball at Andrew Vaughn of Chicago before making a face. Sailor manager Scott Servais and a coach immediately came to the mound and Paxton knelt on the ground with both hands and bent over. After some discussion, Paxton walked down and was replaced by Nick Margevicius.
Paxton spent the last two seasons with the New York Yankees after playing for the first six years for Seattle. He returned to the Mariners in February with a one-year contract worth $8.5 million.
He underwent surgery in February 2020 to repair a herniated disc and remove a cyst from his back. Last year, he had a 6.64 ERA record of 2-3 in five games in New York before being shut down due to a strained left forearm.
Paxton can receive an additional $1.5 million in performance bonuses for games that have already started: $150,000 per person for 6-10 games, and $750,000 per person at the beginning of 11-22.
