Byron Buxton Promoted To Double-A

Byron Buxton was promoted to Double-A in New Britain today, making the Twins prospect and future franchise savior one step closer to making his Major League debut.

The Twins expect Buxton to play well, but even if he doesn’t, according to Mike Beradino of the Pioneer Press, “Even if Buxton, 20,  can’t turn on the jets for New Britain — which graduated Aaron Hicks on to Triple-A Rochester last Monday — these final three weeks should prepare him well for a return engagement at the Arizona Fall League, where play begins Oct. 7. That would be the best way for Buxton to reclaim some of the 300 or so at-bats he lost due to injury this year, not counting his time at extended spring training.”

Here’s to Buxton getting back into the groove of things!
