SEATTLE — The Seattle Mariners brought back their one-time ace James Paxton on a one-year contract with the hope he can solidify their rotation and reestablish himself as one of the top left-handers in baseball.
Paxton spent the past two seasons with the New York Yankees but had an injury-riddled 2020 that included back and arm troubles.
Seattle believes it was fortunate to get Paxton on a one-year deal.
Seattle is the team Paxton broke into the majors with.
He became a fan favorite on his way to becoming one of the top lefties in the American League.
