Prospects To Players: Where Do These Guys Go For Twins?
2 of 7
After suffering through injuries for most of 2014 and playing in only 31 games, this spring is probably much different from what it could have been. While Buxton will get plenty of run with the major league team in Spring Training, he’s likely just showcasing what ability will eventually be taking over Target Field.
He hasn’t yet played more than one career game at the Double-A level, and it’s almost guaranteed that he starts the year in Chattanooga. Whether the Twins promote him directly from there, or have him play in Rochester first remains to be seen. This spring will be about getting baseball’s best prospect some at bats against major league competition and acclimating him back into the game.
