  • Buxton is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics. Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reported Sunday that Buxton is continuing to a manage knee issues, and while he was able to play all nine innings of Monday's 3-1 win, the outfielder will get some maintenance for the second game of the series. Provided he isn't dealing with any sort of setback with either of his knees coming out of Monday's start, Buxton should be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale.

  • Buxton, who is leading off and starting in center field Sunday against the Guardians, is playing through a knee issue, and the Twins will be measured with his usage until it's healed, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. The team feels it can manage the issue without pushing him too hard and risking a longer absence. Buxton is the Twins' most valuable position player, so having him on a part-time basis is better than not having him at all, but there is still some risk that he aggravates the issue and they are forced to shut him down at some point.

  • Buxton isn't starting Saturday's game against the Guardians. Buxton will get a breather after going 1-for-9 with a homer, two runs, two walks and two strikeouts over the last three games. Gilberto Celestino will take his place in center field and bat eighth.

  • Buxton (hip) will be in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. The Twins have yet to release their full lineup Wednesday, but Buxton will be included after sitting out the past couple games since suffering a low-level hip strain Saturday. The 28-year-old continues to crush when available this season with nine home runs and a .278/.342/.722 slash line over 19 games.

  • Buxton (hip) remains on the bench for Tuesday's game against the Astros, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Buxton was considered day-to-day after leaving Saturday's game against Oakland with what the Twins called a "low-level right hip strain," but he's still sidelined even after Monday's off day. He'll continue to avoid the injured list for now, though it's hard to feel confident in his health given his lengthy injury history. Gilberto Celestino will start in center field.
