Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- He's been named one of the best prospects in baseball, and for Twins fans he can't reach the majors soon enough.
Today we got our first up close look at Minnesota's top draft pick from
last year, Byron Buxton.
Buxton playing today for his team in Class A, the Cedar Rapids Kernels facing Kane County and Buxton was tremendous, already with a single, here in the 5th, this ball is crushed off the base of the left-center field wall. Three runs come in to score.
In the 6th, we get to see the speed from Buxton as this ball is drilled into the other gap. He flies around the bases and ends up with a triple!
Then the defense comes into play, watch the speed as he makes this terrific leaping catch to rob a player of extra bases, he truly showed off the entire package.
3 hits and plenty were impressed.
Bryon Buxton- Twins Top Prospect: "Have to say so; seeing the ball real well, rolled over curveball earlier in the game; wasn't going to be seeing too many fastballs so I just decided on breaking stuff Jake Luke Tommy taught me a lot and using it in the game Paul came and using better baserunning that as well."
Buxton isn't the only jewel in the Twins organization, Miguel Sano was promoted yesterday from Fort Myers to Double. A New Britain some late NFL news. ESPN reporting Tim Tebow has been signed by the Patriots.
