Byron Buxton (shoulder) taking swings off a tee

Byron Buxton (shoulder) has progressed to taking swings off a tee.

Fantasy Impact

Buxton will be limited early in spring training after having labrum surgery last August. Manager Rocco Baldelli says the goal is for him to be ready for Opening Day. In 87 games last year Buxton hit 10 homers, stole 14 bases, and posted an .827 OPS.

Byron Buxton (shoulder) unlikely to return this season

Twins manager Rocco Baldelli says Byron Buxton (shoulder) is unlikely to return this season.

Fantasy Impact

Buxton is having his shoulder checked out this week but it sounds as if the Twins are bracing for the possibility that he won't return. The 25-year-old has had a strong season and showed growth as a hitter. He'll once again be a polarizing commodity in 2020 fantasy drafts.

Byron Buxton (shoulder) activated off IL

The Twins activated Byron Buxton (shoulder) off the 10-day injured list.

Fantasy Impact

Buxton experienced a setback with his shoulder injury earlier this week, so it's unclear if he is ready to return to game action. However, with rosters expanded, the Twins can activate him.

Byron Buxton scratched Friday with shoulder soreness

Byron Buxton was scratched from Friday's starting lineup with left shoulder soreness.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear when and how Buxton sustained this injury. He'll be considered day-to-day for the time being.
