Twins' Brian Dozier collects three RBI in Monday's win

Twins bump Buxton to leadoff spot, Dozier down to second spot
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/22/15) For the first time since his promotion to the majors, the Twins batted Byron Buxton in the leadoff spot Monday against the White Sox. He had hit ninth in his first eight games.
Buxton moving to the top spot in the lineup meant Brian Dozier got bumped to the second spot in the batting order. Dozier has hit leadoff a team-high 51 times in 2015, and Monday was the first time he hadn't hit leadoff since May 20.
Twins manager Paul Molitor said he envisions Buxton batting leadoff as a "one-day thing," per MLB.com. He likes the matchup Monday against left-hander John Danks.
Buxton is batting just .120 (3 for 25) with one triple, one stolen base and nine strikeouts since his highly anticipated promotion. Dozier has a .271/.529/.887 slash line in his last 19 games.
|2014 summary: Brian Dozier emerged from obscurity to be a useful Fantasy option in 2013, but he became even more relevant last season. In increasing his walk rate and his stolen base attempts, Dozier elevated himself among the elite at second base, as he finished third in Fantasy points and fifth in Rotisserie value at his position. Dozier's tendency to pop out keeps him from delivering a high batting average, and his .242 mark from last year was just one point above his career average. In every other regard, Dozier was a Fantasy stud among middle infielders, hitting 23 home runs, scoring 112 runs, driving in 71 runs and stealing 21 bases.|
Playing time status: Dozier tied for the sixth-highest total of plate appearances in the majors, and as long as he remains at or near the top of the Twins' batting order, he should continue to amass plate appearances -- and his counting stats.
2015 outlook: Because Dozier's performance two seasons ago seemingly came out of nowhere, he had some skeptics heading into last season. Having built on that initial success, it is safe to view Dozier as a top five second basemen in this season's drafts, making him an early-round option.
