Paxton

SDS

Is anyone still using him? He's getting lit up every time I start him. Cutter seems to barely move, the sinker, while better since prestige is still kind of flat. And his control feels like it should be better, he seems to miss his spot and leave a lot of fatty's over the plate.

Who are some of you guy's running for a lefty starter? I'd like at least 1 in my rotation.

SDS

I still use Prestige Pax for a spot start now and again. I know they are both unpopular picks, but I'm using, and have had success with, Kershaw and Luzardo as my lefty starters. As long as you mix your pitches they both can be very effective. Especially with Luzardo, the advantage he has is higher velo. Hope this helps....

I use Paxton quite a bit and love him. I haven’t seen any of the issues that the OP has mentioned. I play on the higher levels so maybe it has got to do with All Star hell but he is my go to lefty in a pinch.

SDS

Prestige Paxton is in my rotation. Probably my number 3 or 4 starter.

SDS

I used him for a spot start on HOF and came away extremely impressed only 5ks but a CG 1 hitter almost makes me consider using him more

SDS

His prestige has a 99 velo which is a huge plus. The thing is if you hang his curveball he’ll be very easy to get bang.

SDS

I'm still using Paxton to get him prestiged. He has his good games and his bad games. Not a top-tier starter, but a serviceable free lefty starter.

SDS

I still use him as my #2 or #3 lefty. But I did just splurge on Sale and he is worth every stub

SDS

I have his prestige and he shoves for me

SDS

Prestige Paxton is probably my most dominant SP. I’ve used him on AS and HOF and he’s been great. Utilize the cutter. As long as you locate it, it’s nasty.

I'm using him, trying to get to the "extra prestige" level, and I do get hit pretty hard in RS All-Star. I do have success in the BR dead-ball event, though.

Thats because every semi-usable card in that event is only good against righties. Every Paxton, Leiter, or Kershaw matchup I get in there goes to extras 0-0.

I took Paxton 7 innings in one of those marathon games. I didn't care if I won (which I certainly DID NOT). I just wanted the innings 🙂
