Twins' Byron Buxton: Day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton is not in the lineup against Milwaukee on Saturday.

Buxton is just 2-for-23 since returning from a trip to the disabled list with migraines and a fractured toe. On the season, he's hitting just .156/.194/.203. Jake Cave will make his major-league debut in center field in Buxton's place.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Heads to bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

According to Berardino, manager Paul Molitor relayed that Buxton is feeling fine physically, so the outfielder's absence Sunday is likely just for maintenance purposes. The 24-year-old overcame a bout with migraines in addition to a hairline fracture in his left big toe to return from a month-long absence and start the first three games of the series with the Angels, during which he went 1-for-10 with a double and five strikeouts. Max Kepler will cover center field in Buxton's stead in the series finale.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Back from DL; starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (toe) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Thursday and is in the starting lineup against the Angels.

The 24-year-old originally landed on the disabled list back on April 18 with migraines, but suffered a hairline fracture in his toe while on a minor-league rehab assignment which ultimately extended his absence. Buxton was able to do a range of running drills earlier in the week with no issues, so the Twins opted to activated him without sending him back out on another rehab assignment. He'll immediately reclaim his role as the team's primary center fielder. Buxton, who was hitting just .195/.233/.244 before landing on the shelf, will face right-hander Garrett Richards in his first game back.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Exhibits full range of running Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (toe) conducted numerous running drills Monday including sprints, backpedals and cuts, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Berardino added that Buxton was smiling following the drill work, making it seem as if his injured toe didn't bother him much during the workout. It's still unclear whether or not he'll embark on a rehab assignment before returning, but this seems like a very positive development for the speedy outfielder.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Rehab assignment still undecided
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (toe) didn't do any running Sunday and is uncertain if he'll need to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment before returning from the 10-day disabled list, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

For the second straight day, Buxton didn't do any running Saturday and instead just hit in the batting cage, but the Twins haven't indicated that the lack of on-field activity amounts to a setback for the outfielder. The Twins may just be taking a cautious approach with Buxton, who did some light running Friday and should increase the intensity of his workouts this week. Buxton's last game action came April 22 with High-A Fort Myers before he was temporarily shut down due to the toe issue, so it would seem more likely than not that the Twins would have the 24-year-old restart his rehab assignment before adding him back to the active roster. Expect the Twins to make an official decision on Buxton's next step within the next couple of days.
