Twins' Byron Buxton: Placed on minor-league DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton was put on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday due to a left wrist strain, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

On Monday, Buxton suffered a recurrence of the wrist injury that initially put him on the shelf in the middle of July. It doesn't appear as though he sustained any sort of structural damage, but don't expect the Twins to rush him back into action at Rochester until he's fully healthy.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Paul Molitor said Buxton left Monday's game with a sore wrist and will likely return to the minor-league disabled list, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Buxton was reinstated from the 7-day DL at Triple-A Rochester last weekend after spending a couple weeks on the shelf due to a strained wrist. Molitor did not state whether Buxton would require a similar stay on the disabled list this time, but more should be known following further evaluation on his wrist Wednesday morning.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Reinstated from minor-league DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (wrist) was activated from the 7-day DL at Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

As expected, Buxton will rejoin the Red Wings and return to the starting lineup at the Triple-A level this weekend landing on the shelf with a strained wrist July 14. Through 18 games with Rochester this year, he's hitting .232/.303/.377 with two home runs, six RBI and three stolen bases. Look for him to head back to the majors once he's able to get into a groove at the dish.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Set for activation Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (wrist) will be reinstated from the minor-league DL at Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports.

Instead of being activated Thursday, the Twins wanted Buxton to partake in another session of batting practice to make sure he was fully operational. It appears as though his time on the field went by without a hitch, and Buxton should return to Rochester's lineup Friday.

Twins' Byron Buxton: Could return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buxton (wrist) is expected to take batting practice again Wednesday and could be activated by Thursday for Triple-A Rochester, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Buxton hit the shelf July 14 due to a strained left wrist, but he's on the brink of a return. The 24-year-old outfielder took batting practice Tuesday without issue, so depending on how Wednesday's session goes, he could come off the disabled list as soon as Thursday. After being shipped to the minors, Buxton has struggled to a .232/.303/.377 batting line through 18 games for the Red Wings.
