Twins' Byron Buxton: Ramping up activities Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (groin) will run and field flyballs Friday to test out his injured groin, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

If all goes well, Buxton is expected to go on a brief rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester. The young outfielder will likely be ready to return to the lineup Tuesday when he's first eligible to be activated, but it still hinges on how this increase in activity goes over the next few days.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Could return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (groin) has been rehabbing at Target Field and could be activated from the DL when eligible on Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

It doesn't sound like Buxton will go on a rehab assignment and will just be activated from the DL. Zack Granite will continue to get starts in center field while Buxton is out.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Placed on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (groin) was placed on the 10-day disabled list prior to Saturday's game against the Astros.

Buxton exited Friday's game with a left groin strain that will force him to miss the next week and a half. It didn't appear as though the injury was a major setback, so the centerfielder should be able to return off the DL when he's eligible, but it was enough to force him out of the lineup for an extended period of time. In his place, Eddie Rosario will likely take over in left field while Zack Granite gets a fair share of starts in center field.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Leaves Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton left Friday's game with left groin soreness after appearing to lose his balance rounding second base, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

In Buxton's absence, Zach Granite took over in center field with Eddie Rosario covering left field. If he misses any sort of significant time, this would likely be the look of Minnesota's starting outfield. It doesn't sound like this injury will be serious, however, so consider him day-to-day for now. Buxton had been on a roll at the end of the first half of the season after a recent change to his batting stance that removed his leg kick. He was 9-for-19 with a home run over his last five games.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Sits out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Buxton has notched nine hits and two stolen bases over the past five contests but he'll head to the bench in favor of Zack Granite. The speedy outfielder will finish the first half of the season slashing an uninspiring .216/.288/.306 with five homers, 16 RBI and 16 stolen bases. His 30.7 percent strikeout rate remains his largest flaw at the plate.
