From Canada, James Paxton was a fourth round pick who would play collegiately at the University of Kentucky.  Paxton debuted in 2013 and had four starts, winning three of them.  Over the next three seasons, Paxton was often on the disabled list, and he had a pedestrian 15-15 record, but by 2017, he was healthy and was able to show what he could do.

Paxton went 12-5 with an ERA just under 3 (2.98).  While his ERA in 2018 was a little higher with 3.76, he went 11-6 and had a no-hitter.  Paxton was dealt to the New York Yankees afterward, and as a Mariner, he had a 41-26 record with 617 Strikeouts.
