|Baseball America names Byron Buxton 2014 No. 1 prospect |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(2/19/14) Twins outfield prospect Byron Buxton is the top-ranked prospect in baseball, according to Baseball America.
Buxton was slotted in 10th in Baseball America's top-prospect list released before the 2013 season, and he moved up to the top spot after hitting .334/.424/.520 with 12 home runs, 77 RBI and 55 stolen bases in 488 at-bats between Class A Cedar Rapids and high Class A Fort Myers. He should spent much of 2014 in Double-A.

|Byron Buxton close to resuming baseball activities |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/27/13) According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Twins outfield prospect Byron Buxton could return to baseball activities as soon as next week.
Buxton was shut down in the Arizona Fall League with a left shoulder strain after just 12 games.
|On normal prospect lists -- the kinds that don't fixate on right now -- Byron Buxton has a strong case for the top spot across all positions, but because he's coming off his age-19 season and has yet to reach even Double-A, he's probably a waste of a draft pick in single-season leagues. Let's not sell him short, though. The guy is uber-talented, earning comparisons ranging from Andrew McCutchen to Mike Trout. Those are two players coming off back-to-back top-three MVP finishes, if you're keeping score at home. Buxton's tools were apparent from the time the Twins took him second overall in the 2012 draft, but he blew everyone away with his polish in his first full professional season, which was most evident in his disciplined approach. Assuming Double-A doesn't slow him down, it's not so far-fetched that he could reach the majors this year. But unlike Billy Hamilton and potentially George Springer, it won't happen on opening day. Playing for the Twins doesn't help Buxton's case, but if last year proved anything, it's that you shouldn't underestimate him. In leagues with ample bench space, he's worth a late-round flier just in case.
