  • James Paxton Throws Bullpen Session

    Boston Red Sox southpaw James Paxton (hamstring) threw 25 pitches in a bullpen session on Saturday. Paxton is recovering from a right hamstring strain that he sustained in his first spring training start on March 3rd. He is expected to throw one more session along with two live BPs before pitching in a game. With the pace that he's on, Paxton will likely begin the season on the injured list. The 34-year-old missed the entire 2022 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery and anticipates making a comeback in 2023. He last pitched a full season in 2019 with the New York Yankees and composed a 3.82 ERA across 29 starts. Evidently, Paxton has had a bumpy past few seasons but the Red Sox are hoping to reinvigorate the success that he had just a few seasons ago.

  • James Paxton Hopes To Get On A Mound By End Of Week

    Boston Red Sox left-hander James Paxton (hamstring) played catch on Wednesday in camp and is hoping to get back on a mound by the end of this week. In his Grapefruit League debut last Friday, Paxton suffered a Grade 1 right hamstring strain, which is expected to cause him to miss Opening Day. The 34-year-old starting pitcher missed all of the 2022 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, and he's only made six starts (21 2/3 innings) over the last three seasons with the New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners due to injuries. This guy just can't stay healthy, so it makes him extremely hard to trust in fantasy.
