Player Notes
James Paxton surrendered three earned runs on six hits in five innings of work against the Pirates on Wednesday, fanning six while walking only one in the loss.

Advice: Now with a 4.27 ERA and a 61/17 K/BB ratio in 65 1/3 innings, Paxton has been victimized by an unlucky .376 BABIP this season. He has attracted attention around the league this year due to a big three MPH increase in his fastball velocity. At 97.2 MPH he trails only Noah Syndergaard among starting pitchers.

James Paxton limited the Blue Jays to one run in seven innings as part of a 2-1 win on Friday.

Advice: That’s more like it. Paxton has scuffled a bit of late, but he was flat-out brilliant in this one, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out nine. He had struck out just five batters over his last three starts combined. The lone run scored on a solo homer by Michael Saunders in the second inning. Paxton will likely continue to have ups and downs, but a night like this showed what he's capable of doing. He'll bring a 4.18 ERA into a tough matchup against the Cubs next week.
