Byron Buxton placed on 10-day DL with a migraine

In a move retroactive to April 15, the Twins placed outfielder Byron Buxton on the 10-day disabled list and added Ryan LaMarre to the 25-man roster. Buxton has been dealing with migraine headaches.

Byron Buxton’s going on the DL

It’s the migraines. After missing yesterday’s game due to migraines, and again not in the lineup for tonight’s game also due to migraines, the Twins announced Wednesday that they have place center fielder Byron Buxton on the 10-day disabled list (I’m assuming on account of the migraines). Ryan LaMarre — who is with the team in Puerto Rico as the 26-man allowed for overseas games — will take Buxton’s spot on the 25-man roster and travel with the team to face the Tampa Bay Rays this weekend. Though Buxton hasn’t played since last Thursday, April 13th, due to the Twins being...

Twins postgame: Byron Buxton has some kind of speed

Notes on Byron Buxton, Max Kepler and manager Paul Molitor following the Twins' 4-1 win over Houston

Byron Buxton thought he had tied the game, but only for a moment

Miguel Sano's three-strikeout night adds to his record, but it obscures how productive he's been in most of his at-bats.

Twins 7, Orioles 0: Jose Berrios throws complete game shutout

Twins 7, Orioles 0: Jose Berrios throws complete game shutout

Jose Berrios, backed by early offense, pitched his first complete game and shutout. Brian Dozier got the game off to a good start with a solo HR to left on the first pitch. Later, Eduardo Escobar hit an RBI double, driving in Joe Mauer. A wild pitch allowed the third run to score, and then Byron Buxton hit an RBI single to right to make it 4-0 going to the bottom of the first. They added 3 more runs on 3 solo homeruns by Dozier (a quiet 2 HR game), Sano, and Escobar to push the lead to 7-0. This was more than enough for Jose Berrios, who efficiently ousted the Orioles lineup all day. It...

Twins 2018 Season Preview: Five reasons to be excited

Twins 2018 Season Preview: Five reasons to be excited

I could probably thing of more reasons, but here’s just a few to help wet your whistle. The 2018 season is upon us, and there are plenty of reasons for Twins fans to be excited this year. If you’re not sure why, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s some reasons why you should be tuning in this year. 1. We get to watch Byron Buxton If you haven’t gotten the word by now, Byron Buxton is ridiculous — and I mean that in a very, very good way. When SB Nation asked me who the Twins’ “player to watch in 2018” was for their MLB season preview, I had a pretty easy...

How will Target Field and the Twins’ defense affect the new pitching acquisitions?

How will Target Field and the Twins’ defense affect the new pitching acquisitions?

The Twins acquired some pretty good hurlers this offseason, and they will be pitching in a new ballpark with Byron Buxton. This year’s offseason was a busy one for Twins, with a focus on upgrading both the rotation and bullpen. As the new talent is set to make an impact for the team in 2018, how may their numbers change pitching half of their games at Target Field with a new cast of players backing them up in the field? To get a quick frame of reference for how the Twins’ defense performed in 2017, here is the Twins’ projected lineup (including a couple extra infielders that will play...

Is Twins outfielder Max Kepler primed for a 'breakout season'?

As several young Twins hitters ascended last season, particularly in the final two months when Minnesota sprinted to the finish and grabbed a wild card playoff spot, one in particular seemed to stall. Eddie Rosario broke out in a big way. Jorge Polanco surged in the final two months (though that streak is under a cloud now after his 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs). Byron Buxton fulfilled his potential as a five-tool player. Max Kepler? Well, he wasn’t bad. He was cumulatively pretty much the same as a 24-year-old in 2017 as he had been as a 23-year-old in 2016, with a...
