Blue Jays supplemental first-round pick James Paxton did not sign before the deadline and will head back to Kentucky, a source confirmed. Paxton, a junior lefthander, rocketed up draft boards midway through the spring by running his lively fastball up to 97 mph and showing an above-average curveball, but he struggled down the stretch and finished with a 5.86 ERA. Paxton will team with righthander Alex Meyer to form one of the nation’s most talented one-two punches in the Kentucky weekend rotation.
