Churchill: M’s Roster Analysis

Churchill: Mariners Roster Projection 1.0

James Paxton’s situation is one to watch here, however. He fell early in camp and hurt his forearms and a wrist. He has yet to make a start this spring — he’s slated to go next Tuesday after a live BP session this week that went well enough — and if he doesn’t knife through his four scheduled starts as the club hopes he could conceivable start the season on the disabled list, simply to buy him the necessary time to ready.
