While the All Star break was happening for the MLB, Byron Buxton was showing why he should be in the All Star Game soon. Buxton went 3 for 4 on Wednesday night's game against Dayton. This is Buxton's sixth game since coming back from his injuries. Byron Buxton has been bothered with a wrist injury throughout the majority of the season. He came back in early May to play four games but then aggravated his wrist again to be put on the DL.
Buxton is ranked number one for prospects in the Minnesota Twins farm system as well as MLB.com. He was invited to spring training in Florida this past March and did well but still had work to do. The Minnesota Twins were hoping to see him in September call ups this season, but the wrist injury might hold him back until the 2015 season.
Byron Buxton is playing for High A Fort Myers Miracle right now and will be moving up to Double A before the end of the season. Buxton's 3 for 4 game included two singles, a triple, and a walk. It seems like that wrist is feeling better and hopefully his hot bat continues. I'd love to see him this September or next season because the Twins need some young players to fill some roles. Keep swinging the bat Buxton and we'll see you soon.
