Paxton had a rough little stretch after a trip to the DL that cost him almost the entire month of May. He gave up 20 earned in his five June starts, which will do damage to an ERA as delicate as his was.
That ERA went from 1.26 to 3.44, even though only two of those five starts weren’t at least serviceable.
Look at Paxton’s game log, though, and you will see a cluster of home runs allowed in those five starts – one in each.
He hasn’t allowed a dinger in any of his other nine starts.
The good news for Paxton is his ERA dropped in each of his two most recent starts. He’s having a terrific season and his team needs him in a competitive AL Wild Card.
He is approaching his career-high of 121 innings pitched.
Chicago White Sox
Chicago doesn’t do a ton well but it does hit lefties. A .793 team OPS is second-best in the American League behind Houston but that number has dropped. Avisail Garcia is slowing, too.
But anybody who was slowing before the break may feel rejuvenated immediately following.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Garcia is energized, nor if James Shields feels a little extra fresh.
Shields hasn’t pitched in 10 days. These are about the only spots where I give him some of the respect he got when San Diego signed him to that big contract.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction: a fresh Shields gives Chicago a shot.
I have this one lower and closer than the oddsmakers do because of Shields on extra rest. Hold off fading him for this one start.
