Byron Buxton News
Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton went 3-for-5 with three runs scored, two homers, a double, and two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Tigers. Buxton homered in the first inning to give the Twins a 1-0 lead, scored a run in the third, belted another homer, then finished off his night with a double. The slugger is absolutely on fire in September, as he's slashing .263/.336/.576 with eight homers, 11 RBI, 23 runs scored, and four stolen bases. Fantasy managers who stashed Buxton are getting rewarded handsomely.
Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run scored, and a stolen base in Tuesday's victory over the Tigers. Buxton started his night with a single in the first inning- then walked, stole second, and scored in the third inning. The 27-year-old has been a strong fantasy contributor in September, as he's gone 11-for-35 with seven runs scored, four doubles, two homers, four RBI, and three stolen bases in his last 10 games played. It's been another injury-filled campaign for Buxton, but he is certainly making up for lost time with his performance down the stretch.
Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo homer in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays. Buxton sent a ball 393 feet into the outfield at 100.8 MPH for his 16th long ball of the season. The speedy outfielder isn't hitting for average much, but owns a .511 slugging percentage with 17 runs scored, six homers, nine RBI, and two stolen bases in September. Buxton should be a mainstay in lineups while he's hitting this well.
Just as he did in 2019, Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton showed his potential as a breakout star last season but his production was capped due to injuries (shoulder, concussion). Limited to just 39 games and 135 plate appearances, Buxton posted a .254/.267/.577 line to go with an impressive 13 home runs and 27 RBI. Notably, in September, Buxton posted a .290/.313/.710 line with eight HR and 15 RBI, suggesting a continued breakout into 2021. His solid, albeit limited, 2020 performance was supported by elite overall exit velocity, overall barrel rate, and overall hard-hit rate metrics which showed dramatic improvement over his 2019 figures. In addition, though he only managed two stolen bases, his sprint speed of 30.0 ft/sec remained in the top 1% in all of baseball. A legitimate five-category threat, Buxton's main issue has been and continues to be, his inability to remain on the field. Buxton has played fewer than 92 games in all but one of his seasons in the majors. Assuming Buxton can reach 531 PA in 2020 (a dubious assumption), Steamer projects him to post a .266/26/79/74/19 line which would easily outperform his current ADP of 117. As such, Buxton can certainly be a league difference-maker for managers who opt to roster him if he can remain healthy. That said, expectations must be tempered since Buxton has consistently shown no ability to do so.
