Expert NoteView More Notes
Byron Buxton staying healthy is the carrot dangling in front of fantasy managers every offseason. He is above the 90th percentile in all of the power categories and sprint speed, and when he is on the field, he is a dynamic player who contributes mightily to fantasy teams. Therein lies the problem, of course. Buxton played in only 92 games last year, 61 in 2021, 87 in 2019, and 28 in 2018. The volume just hasn't been there to truly be a fantasy stud. Yet every year on draft day, there he sits in the ninth or tenth round, and every year we all imagine what an absolute steal that would be if he were to play 140+ games. It's a risky proposition, but the payoff could be incredible. Just make sure you have enough IL slots.

Byron Buxton to have knee surgery Tuesday
Byron Buxton is set to have season-ending arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday.
With the Twins’ hope to make the postseason almost gone, the Twins and Buxton have opted to go ahead with the knee surgery. It is said to be minor and just a cleanup which should have Buxton ready for spring training. The 28-year-old slashed .224/.306/.526 with 28 home runs and 51 runs batted in over 92 games this season.
