Loser: James Paxton
James Paxton‘s first start of the 2020 season was ugly, to say the least. Paxton was pulled after just one inning of work during his start on July 25 in Washington after he failed to record an out in the second inning of the Yankees 9-2 loss to the Nationals.
In the short start, Paxton allowed five hits, three earned runs and walked a batter as he took the loss.
The start not only cost the Yankees a game, but it was a poor start to a crucial year for Paxton, who will be a free agent at the end of the season.
