Byron Buxton is not in the starting lineup for the Twins' Friday night matchup with the Rockies. Buxton has sat for three straight games now due to soreness in his right knee. (MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact:

Twins' manager Rocco Baldelli told reporters Thursday that he was hopeful Buxton would be back for this weekend's series. So perhaps he'll be back tomorrow or Sunday and avoid the IL. The superstar has avoided serious injury this season, but the Twins often play it safe with him due to his value. Keep an eye on the lineups this weekend so you can get Buxton and his 19 HRs back in your lineup as soon as he is ready.
