Mariners' lefty James Paxton leaves game with injury

Mariners fall to Angels

Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout swings for a three-run double against the Seattle Mariners during the ninth inning of a baseball game Thursday Aug. 10 2017 in Seattle

The pain he felt in his left pectoral muscle that forced him out of Thursday night's start in the seventh inning wasn't quite as significant.

For the second time this season, the Mariners rotation now has only one pitcher (Yovani Gallardo) in it from the starting staff projected in April. The early estimate is that the DL stint won't be short. Paxton is expected to be sidelined for at least three weeks. "It's been a insane season, really it has been, with all of the injuries". Now, with Paxton's injury, they'll be crossing their fingers for whether or not it can become a reality. To put ourselves in the position we are now, a lot of it has to do with James Paxton.

Both of these guys either seems to be really good or really bad, especially JC, who has allowed four or more earned runs in four of his last 10 starts.

The diagnosis stunned Paxton and the Mariners.

"Obviously, we were limited tonight in what was available in our bullpen", Servais said. "We're going to see how it responds here and get back as soon as possible".

Paxton couldn't hide his disappointment or frustration. "I feel like I've had enough of those. Yeah, just another rare injury that's pretty uncommon with pitchers, but that's what we're dealing with and we'll have to treat it as we go", Paxton said. Unfortunately we went through a similar thing in May.

Tillerson says NKorea must halt launches to talk
North Korea had tough talk today for the United States, following the weekend adoption of new sanctions by the United Nations. Before Tillerson's trip, the USA had said he had no plans to interact with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho.

He wasn't certain on the recovery plan for that kind of injury or if the estimated time out of three weeks means he would be back pitching games after that.

The Mariners won the first game 8-7, starting off with three homers and a 7-0 lead after two innings and then holding on for the win. In 1192/3 innings, he's struck out 138 batters.

Paxton was working his way into the conversation for Cy Young Award consideration. Andrew Moore, the Mariners' recently recalled rookie, replaced Pagan in the sixth inning, which he got through with no problem.

Paxton has pitched brilliantly this season, posting a 3.14 xFIP, 3.37 SIERA, and 28.6% strikeout rate while compiling a 12-3 record for Seattle in 119 2/3 innings pitched. The Mariners' relief corps has been used heavily in the past week.

North Battleford's Andrew Albers is going to be in a pennant chase.

Albers had the 3rd best ERA (2.61) in the International League where he was pitching for the Braves AAA affiliate.
