Byron Buxton leaves game after crashing into the outfield wall


The Twins are hot right now. And, while outfielder Byron Buxton‘s numbers have been pretty bad all year, he had just started to come around a bit, collecting hits in his last three games and hitting the ball a bit harder than he had been. There’s always been hope that he’d break out. Maybe it’s happening now?

If so, it may be derailed for a time, as he was pulled from this afternoon’s game against the A’s after crashing into the outfield wall in the sixth inning. And it wasn’t his first time hitting the wall in this game. It seems to have been calling him.

Updates on his condition when available.
