Player Notes
Twins general manager Terry Ryan said top prospect Byron Buxton could make his major league debut this season.

Advice: "I don't see him breaking camp with us but I do see maybe surfacing in the major leagues in 2015," Ryan told Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Buxton played just 31 games in 2014 due to injury, so he'll likely begin the season at Double-A. He's still just 21 years old, though, and has as high an upside as anyone in the minors. When he does surface in the majors, he'll be a must-own for fantasy purposes.

Byron Buxton said Friday that he was cleared for baseball activities two weeks ago and is hoping he's finally put the injuries behind him.

Advice: He's expected to enter spring training fully healthy and ready to go. 2014 was a bit of a lost season for the game's top prospect, as the 21-year-old was limited to only 31 games. He's expected to begin the season at Double-A New Britain.
