Player Notes
Byron Buxton (thumb) will take batting practice on the field Thursday before then beginning to play in simulated games at the Twins' spring training complex.

Advice: It's unclear how many sim games he'll need, but if they go well Buxton will then be cleared for a rehab assignment. There had been some talk that the young outfielder could be out until as long as late August, but it's looking like it will definitely be sooner than that if he can avoid a setback.

Byron Buxton (thumb) took batting practice on Tuesday.

Advice: He'll continue to take BP this week and could go through other pregame drills by the weekend. Buxton could be sent to the Twins' spring training complex next week if he continues to progress. The young outfielder isn't expected to be activated until mid- to late-August.

Byron Buxton (thumb) could miss as much as a month more of action.

Advice: Twins general manager Terry Ryan thinks that timeline "might be a bit of a stretch," but it's clear that the club will take its time with Buxton's recovery from sprained ligaments in his left thumb. Buxton began resistance drills underwater on Thursday and will begin hitting off a tee and doing flip drills this weekend. He could take batting practice on Thursday or Friday if all goes well. Ryan said that Buxton's rehab assignment will be "lengthy" since he's missed so much time.
