New York Yankees left-hander James Paxton has been out since early-May after leaving a start with a left knee injury.

It appeared he was trending in the right direction and would be pitching in the Bronx soon, but he didn't sound optimistic after his latest extended spring game.

“I felt it a little bit, but I still was able to make my pitches, which is what I wanted to see,” Paxton said. “If I come in tomorrow with more pain than I had walking in today, then we’ll have to do something. But, if I come in tomorrow and it feels the same as it did walking in today, then that’s just how I’m going to have to pitch for right now.”
