Byron Buxton (hand) lands on the IL again

Just three games after returning from a hip injury, Byron Buxton is back on the IL with a fractured hand after getting hit by a pitch on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

It's rough news for fantasy managers, as when healthy Buxton has been a huge fantasy asset, hitting .369 with 10 home runs and 19 RBIs in just 103 at bats. OF Gilberto Celestino has been promoted to the major league roster in response, and will start in CF on Tuesday.

Byron Buxton fractures hand on HBP

X-rays revealed that Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton has a boxer's fracture on his left hand after getting hit by a pitch during Monday's 7-5 win over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Buxton was hit during the 12-inning game and will head back to the injured list yet again. He was just activated off of the IL on June 19 after spending over six weeks on the sideline thanks to a hip injury. Buxton has been hitting the ball well when healthy but he just can't seem to stay on the field.

Byron Buxton leaves Monday's game after HBP on hand

Byron Buxton was removed from Monday's game against the Reds two innings after being hit by a pitch on the hand.

Fantasy Impact

The fact that Buxton remained in the game for two innings is hopefully a good sign that his injury isn't serious, but he was in serious pain immediately after getting plunked. He'll surely go for X-rays shortly and the Twins should provide a further update after the game.

Byron Buxton homers, doubles Sunday

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton went 2-for-5 with a double, a homer, and two RBI in a 4-2 win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Buxton made a splash in just his second game back from the injured list. The star outfielder is hitting .366 with 11 doubles, 10 homers, 21 runs, 19 RBI, and five steals in 101 at-bats. Both the Twins and fantasy gamers rostering him are hoping he's able to stay on the field after missing about five weeks with a hip injury.

Byron Buxton (hip) offcially activated from the IL

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton (hip) was activated from the 10-day injured list on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Buxton is batting second in Saturday’s game against the Rangers. Before the injury, Buxton slashed an impressive .370/.408/.772 across 24 games. Fantasy managers can safely insert Buxton into their starting lineups. The 27-year-old is a difference-maker when healthy and currently 32nd among all outfielders in the latest ROS expert consensus rankings.
