Byron Buxton Says He'll Be Ready

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton (foot), who was carted off the field on Monday night with a sprained left foot, said he will be ready for Opening Day next Friday. "I'm playing. I'm playing. I ain't worried about that. I'll be there. ... I feel too good to let this beat me," Buxton said. We've heard the 26-year-old say similar things before and not return, so take the oft-injured outfielder's words with a grain of salt. Buxton has immense power-speed upside if he ever can manage to stay healthy over a full season, though. In just 87 games for Minnesota in 2019, Buxton hit .262/.314/.513 with 10 home runs, 46 RBI, 48 runs and 14 stolen bases. He's still a popular sleeper in the middle rounds, but don't assume he'll be ready by next Friday.

Byron Buxton Away From Camp For Birth Of Son

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton (shoulder) has not arrived to summer camp yet because he just welcomed his second child into the world. Buxton underwent shoulder surgery last September and hadn't played in any games when spring training was shut down in March. He should be ready for the start of the season in late July and has a tantalizing blend of power and speed that could really play well for fantasy owners in the 60-game season. There's always the risk of injury, but Buxton is easily a top-50 fantasy outfielder with upside to outperform expectations if he stays on the field. He's still only 26 years old and hit .262/.314/.513 with 10 home runs, 46 RBI, 48 runs and 14 stolen bases in just 271 at-bats last year.

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.
