Twins' Byron Buxton (thumb) to be out 4-6 weeks, manager says

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/26/15) Twins manager Paul Molitor mentioned that rookie center fielder Byron Buxton is expected to miss about 4-6 weeks with a sprained left thumb, according to MLB.com. 

Buxton was added to the disabled list on Friday, after he injured the thumb attempting to steal during Thursday's game. 

Twins place Byron Buxton (thumb) on 15-day DL

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/15) The Twins made the surprising announcement Friday that rookie center fielder Byron Buxton was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a left thumb sprain, which he suffered Tuesday against the White Sox while attempting to steal second base.

Twins manager Paul Molitor told Go 96.3 FM that Buxton will likely be out longer than the minimum 15 days on the disabled list.

"(Buxton) is going to have to back off a while, probably at least a month," Molitor said.

The Twins recalled Danny Santana from Triple-A Rochester to replace Buxton, who is batting .189 (7 for 37) with no home runs, no RBI, five runs, two walks, 15 strikeouts and one stolen base in 11 games since his highly anticipated promotion from the minors.

Buxton entered the season as the top prospect in baseball according to MLB.com. Baseball America had him ranked as the second-best prospect.

Twins CF Byron Buxton back in leadoff spot Wednesday

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/15) Twins rookie center fielder Byron Buxton was moved to the leadoff spot for the second time in three games Wednesday against the White Sox.

Monday was the first time since his promotion from the minors he hit leadoff. Buxton stepped up in a big way, going 3 for 5 with three runs.

Buxton has hit safely in his last three games, going 5 for 11 (.455) with one double, three runs, three strikeouts and one stolen base.

Twins' Byron Buxton produces 1st multihit game in 1st game leading off

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/15) Prior to Monday's game against the White Sox, Twins manager Paul Molitor moved rookie center fielder Byron Buxton into the leadoff spot in the lineup and said the experiment would likely last just one game because he liked the matchup against left-hander John Danks.

Well, Molitor might have to reconsider his plans since Buxton provided a spark atop the lineup in a 13-2 rout.

Buxton wasted little time making an impact, as he recorded his first career double in his first at-bat Monday. He went on to have his first multihit game, going 3 for 5 with three runs.

"I'm just glad Molitor had that much faith in me to put me in the leadoff spot," Buxton said, per MLB.com. "I just tried to relax and have fun."

Buxton now has four hits in his last two games after managing just two hits in his first seven games.

"It's got to feel good for him to get a multihit game and contribute and get a chance to lead off and score a run in the first inning," Molitor said. "So it was nice to see him respond with that challenge and be a part of the 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.
