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.

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton (wrist) had a single with Single-A Fort Myers over the weekend on his rehab assignment, and he started in right field for the first time in his career Monday, July 14. Until his wrist problems this year, Buxton had hit .334 (163-for-488) with 12 home runs, 77 RBIs and 55 stolen bases last year.
Fantasy Tip: Buxton, the team's top prospect, is on his way to recovering from his nagging wrist injury, which has kept him out for most of the season to this point. However, Minnesota probably won't rush him at all, so there's still a chance we won't see Buxton in the majors until next season.
