Twins | Byron Buxton returning to action

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton (back) will be back in the lineup for Class AAA Rochester Saturday, May 21, according to general manager Terry Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Buxton's performance in the majors to date has disappointed, but he still has all the tools that made him one of the top prospects. Stash him in AL-only formats and hope his next stint with Minnesota proves to be a productive one.

Twins | Byron Buxton injured in minors

Thu, 19 May 2016 14:44:38 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton (back) has yet to play for Class AAA Rochester since he suffered from back spasms last Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Buxton, who came up through the minors as one of baseball's top prospects the last few years, has been a monumental disappointment so far at the major league level. In parts of two seasons with Minnesota, he's hit just .195 with two home runs and four stolen bases. He had been playing well on the farm prior to his injury, and those in deep mixed and AL-leagues should continue to keep a close eye on him for his power/speed combo. It's not out of the question to stash him if you have the room.

Twins | Byron Buxton warming up in Rochester

Mon, 09 May 2016 20:15:17 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton is hitting .276 with three home runs in the past week at Class AAA Rochester, as he starts to heat up a bit after his demotion to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Buxton showed off good speed and defense during his time with the big club earlier in the season, but his bat was quiet and he struck out too much. He remains one of the top prospects in baseball, but he is 22 and time is ticking loudly.

Twins | Byron Buxton optioned to the minors

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 12:22:04 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton was optioned to Class AAA Rochester Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Buxton has a .156/.208/.289 slash line through 17 games this season with 24 strikeouts over 49 plate appearances. His upside is stash worthy in deep leagues and dynasty/keeper formats, but in the majority of redrafts, you can't roster a non-contributor. Buxton should resurface in Minnesota at some point this season, but in the meantime, he is nothing more than a player to monitor in most leagues.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez, Byron Buxton playing

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:36:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Eduardo Nunez and OF Byron Buxton are back in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Sunday, April 24, batting first and eight, respectively. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will move back to right field after playing the hot corner Saturday and OF Oswaldo Arcia will get the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez is batting .405 with seven RBI through his first 37 at-bats this year, including a .455 mark versus right-handed pitching, making him a solid value play in daily fantasy games. On the other hand, Buxton is just 6-for-40 at the plate and should be avoided today.
