Byron Buxton Healed Completely From Shoulder Surgery

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton (shoulder) is fully healed from surgery to repair his injured shoulder, according to manager Rocco Baldelli. Baldelli also said that Buxton would have been ready for Opening Day, which is good news for fantasy managers pondering about drafting the 26-year-old. Buxton is the ultimate risk-reward pick. He could flirt with 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases, though the injury risk is undeniable, with over 100 games missed in the last two seasons. Injury is the only thing that can stop Buxton from smashing his 172 ADP in 2020.

Byron Buxton Taking Things Slow

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton(shoulder) participated in a live batting practice session and hit a couple of long balls on Wednesday. Buxton said his shoulder was a little sore after the swings, which isn't shocking considering the length of time he's gone without playing. At this point, it's unclear if he'll be ready for the first game of the season. The 26-year-old hasn't played 100 or more games since the 2017 campaign. Buxton could approach 20 home runs and 20 steals, especially if health is finally on his side, but that's the risk you take in drafting the oft-injured power/speed threat.

Byron Buxton To Take Batting Practice Tuesday

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton (shoulder) will take live batting practice on Tuesday. The team will evaluate him on a day-to-day basis as they determine if he'll be ready for Opening Day. Buxton had surgery last September to fix a torn labrum in his non-throwing (left) shoulder. If he can avoid setbacks, he still has a chance to be ready by Opening Day, but don't get your hopes up. The 26-year-old has developed a reputation as a slower healer and is a big injury risk in fantasy, but he could be a bargain at his current 178.6 ADP if he can remain on the field. His mix of power and speed could be a difference-maker for your fantasy squad if he can manage to play something close to a full season. Buxton has only played over 100 games once in his five seasons in the bigs.
