News: Paxton was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Impact: The 25-year-old lefty has made five starts since his activation from the DL on Aug. 2, posting a 2-1 record, 1.65 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 20:9 K:BB in 27.1 innings. Considering the results, expect him to return to the majors once rosters expand in September.(RotoWire, )

News: Paxton (4-1) was sound in Tuesday's outing against the Rangers, shutting out the opposition for 6.2 innings. He gave up four hits, walked three and struck out four en route to the victory. Impact: Paxton bounced back from his four-inning debacle last Wednesday vs. the Phillies quite gracefully, racking up a career-high 118 pitches. The 25-year-old indicated after the game that he's starting to feel more comfortable with each successive start, as he recovers from a strained back muscle that caused him to miss most of the first four months of the season. Even with the presumptive rust he's experienced while returning from injury, Paxton still has a 1.71 ERA for his MLB career, the best mark for a pitcher in his first 11 starts since 1990.(RotoWire, )

News: Paxton lasted just four innings Wednesday against Philadelphia, surrendering four runs (one earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out five.

News: Paxton pitched six innings of one-run ball Friday, allowing five hits and one walk with two strikeouts in a win at Detroit. Impact: Paxton won his sixth consecutive decision to start his career, improving to 3-0 this season. He struggled with control of his offspeed pitches early, which caused a high pitch count (99). His fastball, though, was consistently in the mid-to-high 90s, and he got 10 groundball outs. In three starts since coming off the DL, Paxton has allowed four runs in 16.2 innings (2.16 ERA).(RotoWire, )
