Twins' Byron Buxton: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (leg) is in Sunday's lineup against the Orioles.

Buxton was absent from the lineup Saturday after fouling a ball off his leg in Friday's action. However, the injury was not serious and he has rejoined the lineup, batting ninth in the team's series finale against the Orioles.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Resting sore leg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton fouled a ball off his leg in Friday's game, but is available off the bench Saturday against the Orioles, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

It caught him on the border of the bone and calf muscle, but Park says there is no real cause for concern. With this being a day game after Friday's night game, the Twins will be cautious with Buxton, but it sounds like he should be back in action Sunday.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Doubles twice in romp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton went 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles and runs and a stolen base in Tuesday's 14-8 victory over the Mets.

Buxton produced one of the Twins' five extra-base knocks against Mets ace Jacob deGrom, who saw his streak of 26 straight quality starts come to an end. The outfielder has done well to cut down on his strikeouts thus far while improving the quality of his contact (career-best 33.3 hard-hit percentage), but it hasn't translated to over-the-fence power yet. All five of his extra-base hits this season have been doubles.
