Top prospect Byron Buxton re-injures wrist
Twins minor-league CF Byron Buxton has only played five games this season due to a wrist injury and now he has injured it again.
Twins minor-league center fielder Byron Buxton was named the top prospect in all of baseball by every major outlet this spring. It has been downhill from there in 2014, however, as Buxton has missed all but five games in High-A this season due to a wrist injury. And now he has aggravated it.
Buxton will have an MRI on his left wrist in the next few days in order to compare the results to an MRI he had back in spring training when he first injured the wrist, reports MLB.com.
Buxton, 20, was just 3 for 20 (.150) with a double and homer through his first five games this year with High-A Fort Myers. He was slated to spend most of this season at Double-A, but started in High-A to work himself back into form after the injury.
Last season, Buxton hit .334/.424/.520 with 19 doubles, 18 triples, 12 homers, 77 RBI, 109 runs, 55 stolen bases and defensive plays like you'll see below in 125 games between Class A and High-A:
