OF Byron Buxton had his Arizona Fall League stint come to an end Monday night when he dislocated the middle finger on his glove hand diving for a ball. Buxton was selected by the Twins with the second overall pick of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft and is ranked as the top prospect in all of baseball by MLB.com.
But 2014 was a tough one for Buxton as he was limited to just 31 total minor league games. A bruised left wrist in Spring Training got the 20-year old off to a rough start before a concussion in his first, and only, AA game ended his minor league season.
In the AFL, Buxton was hitting .263/.311/.298 in 13 games with the Salt River Rafters prior to the injury. He is expected to start 2015 in AA.
