Stranger things have happened, so hopefully he surprises to the upside, but he has barely pitched in the majors in three years, he couldn't make it through a single inning in his rehab start in the minors last season before hurting himself again, and he was never healthy even when he was healthy (he was on the injured list in 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2020, 2021 and 2022). To top it off, that he exercised his $4 million option rather than hitting the open market to see if he could get a contract like the one he got the year before would suggest that even he thinks he's not that healthy. He's 34 - between injuries and getting older, there's certainly a chance that he's done.What makes you think Paxton is done?
I think its best to assume we get nothing from him and then be happy when and if its something more than that.
