Byron Buxton hits IL; Jake Cave recalled

Byron Buxton hits IL; Jake Cave recalled

Despite improving every day, Buxton needs a little more time. Byron Buxton has been placed on the 10-day IL with a bruised wrist, retroactive to Friday. In his absence, the Twins have recalled outfielder Jake Cave from Triple-A Rochester. Buxton was hit in the wrist by a pitch on Friday night and had not seen game action since then. It had been unclear as to whether or not Buxton was available off the bench as a pinch-runner, but the move today answers that question. The move, it seems, has more to do with roster flexibility than the severity of Buxton’s injury. Excluding the backup...

Twins 6, Rays 2: Glimpses of a familiar offense

Twins 6, Rays 2: Glimpses of a familiar offense

The Twins score six for the first time in a week, and gain a 2-1 edge on the Rays. This afternoon, it was all about the middle innings. After going down 1-0 in the second, the Twins scored at least one run from the 3rd through the 8th. A pair of doubles — one nearly robbed by Gold Glover Kevin Kiermaier — each brought home a run in the third. Byron Buxton singled home a run in the fourth, and Marwin Gonzalez and Buck hit solo shots in consecutive innings to push the lead out to 5-1. Miguel Sano added an RBI double in the seventh. In the course of this, Kyle Gibson put together an...

The re-emergence of Minnesota Twins CF Byron Buxton

The Minnesota Twins are back and better than they’ve been in nearly a decade thanks to strong contributions from top to bottom throughout the organization including gold-glove center fielder Byron Buxton. At this point in the season, there doesn’t really seem to be a “bottom” for the Minnesota Twins. The new guys are hitting, the […] The re-emergence of Minnesota Twins CF Byron Buxton - Pucketts Pond - Pucketts Pond - A Minnesota Twins Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Our Twinkie Town insider got the details from an exclusive meeting.

Twins 7, White Sox 0: Even more homeruns

Twins 7, White Sox 0: Even more homeruns

A pair of 2-out, 3-run homeruns cemented the Twins victory today, earning them a sweep of the White Sox. Jake Odorizzi only went 5 and 1⁄3 innings today, but was dominant while he was out there. He allowed just 1 walk, 1 hit and struck out 9 batters with his assortment of 2-seam fastballs and breaking pitches. Most of Jake’s run support came in the 3rd inning. Byron Buxton singled, and made his way to 3rd base with 1 out. Max Kepler doubled, scoring Buxton. A walk and a strikeout later, Eddie Rosario clobbered his 16th homer, driving in 3 runs to make the score 4-0. Not much happened...

Twins 11, White Sox 4: Lazy offense only hits three HRs

It seemed close at first. Until it was not. I hope the Twins’ hitters aren’t afraid of needles, because there’s probably a small army of blood-testers gonna be sticking ‘em at this pace. Jose Berrios allowed Chicago to rattle him a little bit early on. A leadoff throwing error from team-leader Jorge Polanco in the second would eventually result in four White Sox runs, only one earned. 4-1, Pale Hose. Then, ring-ring. Offense coming. Miguel Sano started it with a walk (!), Jonathan Schoop got HBP, and a Byron Buxton double made it 4-3. Next inning? Jackers from Sano and Eddie...
