Migraines send Byron Buxton to disabled list

1 Comment

The Twins will place outfielder Byron Buxton on the 10-day disabled list due to migraine headaches, MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger reports. The Twins recalled outfielder Ryan LaMarre from Triple-A Rochester to take his roster spot.

Buxton was a scratch from Tuesday’s game against the Indians in Puerto Rico due to the migraine. The 24-year-old got off to a slow start to the season, batting .195/.233/.244 in 43 plate appearances.

Buxton is eligible to come off the disabled list on April 25 as his DL stint is retroactive to April 15.

Update (9:04 PM EST): The game went into a rain delay with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning of a 2-2 tie, so the game isn’t official yet. Which means the Orioles aren’t yet the official record holders.

A third-inning solo home run by Austin Meadows off of Asher Wojciechowski on Thurday night marked the 259th home run Orioles pitching has allowed this season, setting a new major league record, per MASN’s Roch Kubatko. The previous record was held by the 2016 Reds at 258. Willie Adames hit No. 260, a game-tying solo shot in the fifth inning. The Orioles will have 34 more games to add on to their record after tonight.

The Yankees have famously accounted for 61 of the 260 home runs (23.5%) against Orioles pitchers this season. The Red Sox are next at 28 followed by the Twins and Blue Jays at 23 each.

David Hess has accounted for the most home runs on the O’s staff, yielding 28 dingers. Dylan Bundy is next at 25 homers allowed.

The Orioles are not the only team that will pass the 2016 Reds. The Mariners are on pace to allow 275 home runs. The Yankees, 266. Phillies, 262. Angels, 259. Pretty amazing.
