    • Twins' Byron Buxton: Could return Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Buxton (toe) could rejoin the Twins on Tuesday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The Twins are keeping this one close to the vest, as manager Paul Molitor wouldn't say whether Buxton could be an option to rejoin the active roster after outfielder Ryan LaMarre was optioned to Triple-A following Sunday's game. Unfortunately the Twins have an off day Monday, so fantasy owners may not know for sure if Buxton will be back until after lineups lock in certain formats. Triple-A Rochester, where Buxton is rehabbing, plays a doubleheader at Syracuse on Monday. Buxton is hitting just .167/.250/.333 with one home run, two steals and seven strikeouts in 18 at-bats so far during his rehab assignment.

    • Buxton (toe) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The pain is gone from Buxton's fractured left big toe, Berardino also reports. The young centerfielder has had a very rough time when healthy this season, hitting an anemic .156/.183/.200 in 28 games. If he can finally get properly healthy, though, he should be an important player for the Twins, though strikeout issues still cap his fantasy ceiling for now.

    • Twins' Byron Buxton: Runs bases Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Buxton (toe) ran the bases Sunday and was able to take some swings with the bat, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. It sounds like Buxton's broken left big toe is making some progress, but there's no timetable yet for his return. He will travel with the team on an upcoming road trip, but he'll need a minor-league rehab assignment given his time on the DL (since May 30).

    • Twins' Byron Buxton: Hits off tee Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Buxton (toe) is scheduled to participate in some baseball activities Saturday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Buxton is expected to hit off a tee after using a low-gravity treadmill Friday. This is the first time he'll take part in baseball activities since being placed on the disabled list, although the timetable for his return is still quite murky.

    • Twins' Byron Buxton: Making moderate progress
      By RotoWire Staff

      Buxton has only made moderate progress in his recovery from a broken toe, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The pain in Buxton's toe is apparently subsiding at a slower rate than expected. He still hasn't resumed baseball activities, and a possible return date for the outfielder likely won't come into focus until he's able to do so. Ryan LaMarre will continue to fill in for the injured Buxton in center field.
