|Byron Buxton begins to hit in batting cage |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/29/14) Twins outfield prospect Byron Buxton has begun to hit in the batting cage as he makes his way back from a sprained left wrist, reports The Star Tribune. However, the Twins aren't sure when the highly touted prospect will be ready to play in 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.
