“Not the way I want”… Paxton, this time with a hamstring injury
Also, it’s an injury.
Left-handed pitcher James Paxton started an exhibition game against the Minnesota Twins held at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, Florida, on the 4th (Korean time), recording 1 and 2/3 innings, striking out 1 and not allowing a run. The results were flawless, but the problem was injuries. After getting the second out in the second inning, Paxton complained of right hamstring pain and was immediately replaced by Rio Gomes.
Paxton underwent Tommy John Surgery (elbow ligament replacement surgery) in April 2021. Boston acquired Paxton in December of that year on a one-year, $10 million (13 billion won) contract with a two-year club option. He prepared a safety device as an option in consideration of the rehabilitation period, but no news of Paxton’s return was heard. To make matters worse, he even felt back pain, so his debut match in Boston was canceled.
After the season, Boston did not exercise the club option for a total of 26 million dollars (33.8 billion won) for two years. However, Paxton activated a $4 million (5.2 billion won) player option and chose to stay. However, he was again hindered by an unexpected injury in the first appearance of the spring camp exhibition game.스포츠토토
What is frustrating is the player. “It’s not the way I want it to be,” Paxton said. “I wanted to go through spring training cleanly, but as you know, it’s out of my control. All I can do is fix this and do my best to get back to pitching. “he said.
Debuting in the big leagues in 2013, Paxton’s career (nine years) record is 57-33 with an average ERA of 3.59. He also achieved double-digit wins for three consecutive years from 2017, when he played for the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees.
