Who to Watch

Looking at Spring Training standouts, Mayo immediately points to Byron Buxton. The number one prospect in all of Major League Baseball has impressed thus far during the spring. Although Buxton’s talent is well noted, a lost 2014 brought some uncertainty to just how quickly Buxton would be able to start this season.

So far, Buxton has looked every bit the part of the superstar the Twins hope he will be. Batting leadoff in the exhibition against the Gophers earlier this week, Buxton doubled twice showing off his blazing speed on the basepaths.

Looking to distance himself from the injuries he had to deal with last season, Buxton was focused on improving his body this offseason. Thanks to focusing on working out, combined with a strong nutrition plan, Buxton should be in a better place as the 2015 season rolls around. Having followed around Torii Hunter for much of the early parts of Spring Training as well, Buxton should have plenty of new tricks to employ this year.
