Early thoughts on Paxton?

SDS

How's he doing in ranked for yall?

SDS

Not as good as I expected but still decent. A number 4-5

SDS

I’m a bit disappointed. He throws harder than I expected. I just don’t have full confidence in his pitches yet maybe.

He’s in the rotating 5 spot for me...

SDS

He is buns

SDS

What I have noticed more than anything is that he throws with his left arm.

Sorry, my answer was poor.

He is good for 4-6 innings, tops. He is not lights out, strike out stuff. I’ve only given up one run with him, but gotten out of many jams. I feel like he’s easy to pick up.

He just doesn’t feel as good as 95 Snell or Hal or Hameln. He’s kind of scary to pitch with lol.

SDS

Started him once, was very good for 6, then fell apart a little in the 7th. Pretty happy with him overall

SDS

He's been prone to the long ball for me. Throws gas but can become predictable, i hope that's just early jitters as i learn his card, if not i'll replace him. At the end of the day he was free so no loss.

SDS

The control and break just isn’t there. 6th inning Maddux will easily bump him from my rotation.

SDS

Playing on AS in WC i faced him twice and beat him both times. I'd rather face him than Hal

SDS

Not that good

SDS

he's 4-0 with 6ip in 4 starts for me so I haven't been able to get a read on him.....people quit so easily.

SDS

If he had a better strikeout pitch he would be great, but still solid if you mix speeds

Yup, and it's not like I'm really good. People go down 1-2 runs and just give up.

SDS

He sucked on all star in my 1 start. Couldn’t find that put away pitch.

I have yet to pitch with him, but when I face him, I can also stay alive on a 2 strike count for a long time unless I get completely fooled or mess up timing.

SDS

Haven't used him yet. Away for the weekend so I will probably get him some run online Tuesday. I am quite surprised to hear the negative reviews though. The card looks incredible.

SDS

1 Start so far...
8IP, 4H, 1 ER, 10 SO

SDS

Not so good... on all-star at least
