anyone else looking to sell right after he churns out a good start or two?

he is electric, but he seems super injury prone. Paxton + solid closer/ OF3 for a deGrom type maybe...? 

 

With this 10 day DL BS every pitcher is injury prone. I'm riding Paxton till the wheels fall off.

I posted that on page 16. If nothing changes, he'll pitch in Seattle on the 31st against Colorado.

Paxton (forearm) threw four innings in a rehab start for Double-A Arkansas on Friday night and is expected to rejoin the rotation Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

Paxton threw 55 pitches and allowed two runs on five hits. His control was sharp, as he didn't walk a batter. Paxton was lights out in six starts before hitting the disabled list (1.43 ERA, 0.88 WHIP), and he looks like he's in fine form as he nears his return.

What are your expectations for tonight?  It's not the same COL LU away, but still formidable.  I am optomistic Paxton will perform well, based on how he faired in his rehab but it was AA which is definitely not the same as MLB hitters.

And you really want to ponder something, he's already faced Houston twice and look at those results.......As we all know, health is the only issue here.
