Mariners’ Paxton, Hernandez will miss starts vs. Anaheim
Mariners manager Scott Servais said before Thursday’s series opener that Paxton and Hernandez did not accompany the team to Anaheim. Paxton, who was slated to go on Friday, is dealing with pneumonia. Hernandez left last Saturday’s game against the Yankees with hamstring tightness.
Servais said he expects Paxton to be able to return sometime during the last two weeks of the season. The left-hander, who pitched a no-hitter on May 8 at Toronto, is 11-6 with a 3.83 ERA. His career high for wins is 12, set last season.
