Byron Buxton, Jose Berrios among Twins' nine cuts

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/15/15) The Twins reassigned eight players to minor league camp on Sunday and optioned outfielder Max Kepler to Double-A. 

Kepler was one-for-nine in four games this spring. 

Jose Berrios and outfielder Byron Buxton were the top names on the list of players reassigned. 

Berrios, a first-rounder in the 2012 draft, gave up one unearned run on seven hits in six innings this spring, striking out four. 

Buxton, also a 2012 first-rounder, hit .125 in eight at bats. 

The Twins also cut catchers Stuart Turner (2-for-4 in spring) and Mitch Garver (0-for-4), RHP Tyler Duffey (no appearances), LHPs Taylor Rogers (no appearances) and Ryan O'Rourke (9.00 ERA in one inning); and infielder Heiker Meneses (.125).

Twins' Byron Buxton doubles twice on Wednesday

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/4/15) Twins outfield prospect Byron Buxton doubled twice on Wednesday against the University of Minnesota.

Buxton came into last season ranked as one of the best prospects in the minors. He had injury issues, which ended his season early. While Buxton is still considered the Twins top prospect, he was passed by other players in the overall prospect rankings due to the injuries. 

Buxton seemed to be 100 percent on Wednesday, doubling twice during the contest. He scored one run and drove in one RBI. The 21-year-old should open the season in the minors, but could debut as early as this season depending on his performance. 

Five Twins return for workouts on Tuesday

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/15) All five Twins players -- Byron Buxton, Trevor May, Oswaldo Arcia, Jordan Schafer and Kurt Suzuki -- that were sent home due to illness on Monday, returned to the clubhouse on Tuesday and rejoined the club for workouts, reports the Star Tribune.

The Twins begin exhibition season Wednesday with a game against the University of Minnesota.

Twins send five home due to illness before Monday workouts

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/2/15) Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe (illness) was back at workouts Monday, but the Twins sent five other players home due to illness before Monday workouts began, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Pitcher Trevor May and outfielders Byron Buxton and Jordan Schafer missed a second straight day of workouts, while catcher Kurt Suzuki and outfielder Oswaldo Arcia also had to miss the Monday session.

The Twins begin exhibition season Wednesday with a game against the University of Minnesota.

Twins' Byron Buxton named No. 1 prospect by MLB.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/31/15) Twins outfielder Byron Buxton was named the top prospect in baseball by MLB.com Friday.

Buxton played just 31 games in 2014 due to wrist and concussion issues and finished with a .240/.313/.405 line along with four home runs, 16 RBI and six stolen bases in 121 at-bats with high Class A Fort Myers. He also went 0 for 3 at the Double-A level. Buxton is making his second straight appearance atop MLB.com's top prospect list.

The rest of MLB.com's top-five prospects (in order) are Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant, Astros shotstop Carlos Correa, Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor and Cubs shortstop Addison Russell. None of the quartet appeared in the top five of last year's MLB.com prospect list, though all four cracked the top 12.
