Twins' Byron Buxton: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (illness) is in the lineup for Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, LaVelle Neal of the Star Tribune reports.

The illness limited Buxton to just one pinch-running appearance over Rochester's last four games, but it appears he is feeling good enough to return to the starting lineup Sunday. Buxton figures to be back with the Twins at some point before the regular season ends, but it remains to be seen when.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Dealing with illness at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton is out of the lineup for Triple-A Rochester on Saturday due to flu-like symptoms, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

He pinch ran on Friday, but has been out of the lineup since Tuesday due to the illness. There is really not much Buxton can do at Triple-A to change people's opinions of him, as he has always dominated at that level (.986 OPS in 2015, .943 OPS in 2016) but his success has yet to translate to the big leagues. He should join the Twins when rosters expand in September. It is worth remembering that he won't turn 23 until December, which makes him two years younger than the likes of Aaron Judge and Josh Bell, both of whom Buxton already has more big league experience than.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Buxton is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays, according to Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Buxton went 0-for-6 with three strikeouts over his last two games, so he will be held out Saturday in favor of Eddie Rosario, who homered Friday night and is 8-for-16 this month.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Back in action Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (knee) is back in the lineup, hitting ninth and manning center field Thursday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

The speedy center fielder will return after a three-game absence with the knee injury. It's been a very disappointing season for Buxton, who entered the season as a consensus top-two prospect in baseball. The speed and gold glove caliber center field defense has been on display, but his .199/.254/.325 slash line and 36.3 percent K-rate are cause for pessimism. Nonetheless, he should be a good source of steals down the stretch, and has enough talent to salvage things at the plate in 2017.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (knee) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

While Buxton was supposedly available to pinch hit in Tuesday's game, and manager Paul Molitor said he considered sending in his speedy center fielder as a pinch runner late in that game, he is still not ready to return to the lineup Wednesday. Given Buxton's injury history, there is no reason for the Twins to deploy him until he is 100 percent healthy. Eddie Rosario will get the start in center field while Danny Santana starts in left Wednesday.
