— Player Notes
Advice: Buxton suffered a left thumb sprain Tuesday on a stolen base attempt. He played the next day, which obviously wasn't a good idea and he wound up going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts. The Twins could put Danny Santana back in center field while Buxton is out, with Shane Robinson and Aaron Hicks (when he returns from the disabled list) also representing options.

Advice: Buxton evidently suffered the injury on Tuesday on a stolen base attempt. He played the next day and struck out in all four of his plate appearances. Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Buxton will probably be sidelined for "at least a month" of action.Fri, Jun 26 Rotoworld
Advice: Buxton moved back into the leadoff spot for today's game, but he looked easily overmatched by Chicago ace Chris Sale. The dynamic center field prospect is batting .189/.231/.270 in his first 37 major league at-bats.Wed, Jun 24 Rotoworld
Advice: Chris Sale is on the mound for the White Sox, and it appears we can expect Buxton to hit leadoff versus lefties and ninth against righties for the time being. The youngster has just seven hits in his first 33 at-bats.

Advice: Buxton went 3-for-5 with a double and three runs scored out of the leadoff spot Monday night against the White Sox, but that apparently wasn't enough to convince Twins manager Paul Molitor that he deserves a prominent spot in the batting lineup. It's disappointing.

Advice: Buxton led off the bottom of the first with a double, then quickly scored on Brian Dozier's single. He reached on an infield single in the sixth inning and later came around to score, then singled to lead off the eighth and later scored on a Dozier homer. Buxton entered the game batting .120 (3-for-25) since making his major league debut. His slow start isn't surprising, but the talent is certainly there and was on display Monday.Mon, Jun 22 Rotoworld
Advice: Buxton hit ninth in each of his first eight contests. He's managed just three hits in his first 25 at-bats for Minnesota, so manager Paul Molitor must be hoping that the move up the lineup jump-starts the youngster. Buxton had his first major league stolen base on Sunday.
