Broxton was reassigned to minor-league camp, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Broxton had a strong spring by hitting .308 (8-for-26) with a home run, but he didn't really have a chance to make the major-league roster without a starter getting hurt. However, given Byron Buxton's injury history, Broxton could be called up at some point. He'll add depth at Triple-A in the meantime.
Broxton hit a home run in his only at-bat in Sunday's spring training win over Tampa Bay. He's 5-for-8 with a home run this spring and could win a final reserve outfield spot, MLB.com reports. It's not clear how the Twins will utilize the last spot on their bench. Willians Astudillo will likely be the last bench spot since he can be a third catcher and play multiple positions. However, the Twins may prefer a right-handed hitting outfielder since they have so many left-handed hitting outfielders. Broxton could win the role as a result, especially given his defense and ability to play center field. He more likely begins the season at Triple-A and the Twins shuffle their last bench spot around based on needs during the season.
Broxton signed with the Twins as a non-roster invitee Monday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports. Broxton has had success at the big-league level in the past, hitting a solid .242/.354/.430 with 23 steals in 75 games for the Brewers back in 2016. He's had plenty of failure, too, hitting just .200/.280/.376 over 294 games since then. He spent all of last season stuck at the Brewers' alternate training site. If an injury crisis opens up a job for him this season, he could help fantasy teams out with a handful of steals, but his batting average drain may cancel that out.
Broxton will open the season at the Brewers' alternate training site, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Broxton had a chance to make the Brewers' 30-man roster, but the team decided to keep only five outfielders and he was not among that group. He will be among the options should the club need to add an outfielder to the big-league roster at any point.
Broxton (personal) is in the lineup for Friday's intrasquad matchup. Broxton was away from the team for several days to be present for the birth of his daughter, but he'll return to action in Friday's intrasquad game. Given the brevity of his absence, it's unlikely that it would impact his game readiness with Opening Day a week away.
