Buxton was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a low-grade right hip strain, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Buxton's hip injury was already serious enough to warrant an MRI, and the fact that he didn't travel with the team to Houston suggested a stint on the IL was on tap. Gilberto Celestino and Jake Cave could see extra playing time while Buxton is out.
