James Paxton by the numbers

Paxton has looked brilliant in his return to the mound from injury in which he only made six starts over the last three seasons before returning this year and making his Red Sox debut. In June, Paxton was dominant as he made five starts posting a 3-0 record, going 31 innings with a 1.74 ERA, 34 strikeouts, six walks, and 18 hits allowed. Paxton faced the Guardians, Rockies, Twins, White Sox, and Blue Jays.
