Red Sox place pitcher James Paxton on IL with knee inflammation, ending his season

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox left-hander James Paxton was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right knee inflammation, a move that manager Alex Cora says will ends his season. Cora made the announcement before a series finale against AL East-leading Baltimore. Originally, the team pushed his start back to Tuesday against the New York Yankees, but decided it was best to shut him down.
