Twins' Byron Buxton: Smacks leadoff inside-the-park home run
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Buxton went 2-for-4 with a double and an inside-the-park home run in Sunday's 6-3 win over the White Sox. He also walked, drove in two runs and scored twice.

Buxton laced the first pitch of the game over the head of center fielder Leury Garcia, racing around the bases in 14.05 seconds for the season's fastest inside-the-park home run. Buxton's speed was on display all year in center field, but it did not translate to many stolen bases (10). The 22-year-old is still developing as a hitter, as he finished the season at .225/.284/.430 with a 35.6 percent strikeout rate in 331 plate appearances. Next year, he'll look to build on a strong final month that saw him bat .287/.357/.653 with nine home runs.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Continues late season surge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer, a walk and three runs in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

After hitting just .193 with one homer in his first 63 games this year, Buxton's finishing the season strong by batting .277 with seven homers, 18 RBI and a .936 OPS in September. At just 22 years old, the former phenom still has time to significantly change from the struggle his first two years have been overall. He showed good isolated power this year (with eight homers in under 300 at-bats), but still needs to improve extremely low contact and walk rates, and a high strikeout rate. A promotion to the top part of the lineup would help Buxton's outlook next year -- perhaps he'll get that after his strong finish this year.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Continues torrid September
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Buxton went 2-for-3 with a triple and a walk in Thursday's win over Kansas City.

Buxton is hitting .286/.343/.615 with seven home runs and two triples in September. It looks like he's finally figured out how to hit in the majors after hitting .193 with a .561 OPS before September. It's just one month, but his display of power could foreshadow a breakout season in 2017.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Hot sreak moves him up in batting order
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Buxton is hitting sixth in Sunday's lineup against the Mets, the LaVelle Neal III of the Star Tribune reports. He went 2-for-5 with his seventh home run in Saturday's extra-inning loss.

Buxton continues his hot September with his sixth home run of the month. He's hitting .333 with a 1.141 OPS in' September. He's hit ninth most of the year, so his move up the order shows the Twins may have confidence he's finally turned the corner in the majors after struggling before September.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Goes yard again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer and two runs scored Wednesday against the Royals.

Since joining the roster as a September call-up, Buxton's been rapidly regaining all the allure he lost with his MLB struggles last season and earlier this year. Over seven games, he's gone 12-for-26 with four doubles, four homers, 10 RBI and 10 runs -- now that's what we're looking for from a guy who was for a time considered the game's top prospect. He's likely still available as a waiver add in a lot of yearly leagues.
