James Paxton reportedly heading back to Mariners after stint with Yankees

James Paxton is going back to the Seattle Mariners after two years with the Yankees, one very good one and the other destroyed by more injury woes.

Big Maple spent his first six big-league seasons with the Seattle Mariners from 2013-18, and that’s where the power left-hander is returning. According to multiple reports, Paxton signed a one-year, $8.5-million contract with Seattle on Saturday night.

The Western Canada reportedly had drawn interest from the Toronto Blue Jays and Mets before opting for Seattle.

With Paxton off the board, the Mets could potentially be looking at Jake Odorizzi or Taijuan Walker as a starting pitching option.
