Byron Buxton agrees to contract extension with Twins

Twins center fielder Byron Buxton and the Twins have agreed to a seven year, $100 million contract extension with a full no-trade clause.

Fantasy Impact

This is an important long-term move for the Twins in locking up an elite-level player like Buxton. In just 61 games last season Buxton finished with a .306 batting average, 1.005 OPS, 50 runs scored, 23 doubles, 19 home runs, 32 runs batted in, and nine stolen bases.

Byron Buxton homers Sunday

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer, two runs, and two RBI in a 7-3 win over the Royals in the regular-season finale on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Buxton could have posted a career year but he struggled with injuries yet again. He missed just over two months of action with assorted injuries-a hip strain earlier in the season and then a fractured hand. Buxton wraps up his 2021 season with a .306 average, 23 doubles, 19 homers, 50 runs, 32 RBI, and nine steals over 235 at-bats.
