Twins | Byron Buxton receives good news

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 18:09:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton (wrist) had X-rays on his ailing right wrist Monday, July 21, and the results were negative.

FANTASY TIP: Buxton is one of the top prospects in all of baseball, but a nagging left wrist injury has robbed him of most of the season. He remains a must-have for those in long-term keeper formats, but fantasy owners in non-keeper leagues need not stash him, as a September call-up is looking less and less likely by the day.
