James Paxton and What to Expect Moving Forward
Is James Paxton Legit?
The 28 year old Canadian left hander is off to a really hot start, as he is 3-0 with a 1.39 ERA. The Seattle Mariners have found something special as Paxton’s command and velocity has been vastly improved over the last few seasons. Besides a bad outing where he allowed 5 earned runs in Oakland on April 20th, James Paxton has not allowed a single run in his 2017 campaign. Of course that is going to change, but his spectacular 0.84 WHIP and 39:6 K:BB in 32.1 innings is really something to key in on. Bearing no setbacks, James Paxton is a player that should be on everyone’s radar in all fantasy formats.
Is Paxton DFS Worthy?
Absolutely. When creating a DFS lineup, the pitcher is most important position on your roster. Through his last four starts, Paxton has struck out at least 8+ batters in each game, which is huge for the DFS world. In addition, he is backed by a great hitting ball club. This allows him to obtain wins, which is crucial to any starting pitcher. Expect Paxton’s 1.39 ERA to dip throughout the season. After watching him, he reminds me of a Clayton Kershaw on the mound. He is not a must start on every night he pitches, but definitely give him a great look when he plays teams that have a high strikeout ratio against lefties.
