Twins | Byron Buxton to play in games

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 13:43:07 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton (wrist) is scheduled to take batting practice Wednesday, April 23, and he could play in an extended spring game Thursday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: The best-case scenario is probably that Buxton is a September call-up this year. Wrist injuries often hurt a player's power production, too, so you'll have to keep an eye out for that. Buxton is a much better buy for the 2015 season now.

Twins | Brian Dozier getting foot down earlier

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 16:13:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier said he worked last season to get his foot down earlier, which allows him to have more power at the plate. He said the change started to occur in mid-May of last season. "I was missing a bunch of fastballs pretty much down the middle and didn't know why," he said.

Fantasy Tip: There isn't much upside here, but Dozier gives you nice power from the position. Plenty of room for regression here, so be aware.
