Twins News: Minnesota Gets Great Update on Byron Buxton Injury
As the 2021 MLB season began, a lot of experts had high expectations for the Minnesota Twins. Unfortunately, they haven't even come close to meeting any of them. Entering Saturday's action, the Twins are sporting a 28-41 record and sit dead-last in the AL Central.
One of the few bright spots of Minnesota's season has been centerfielder Byron Buxton, however, he's been out of the club's lineup since early May with a hip issue. Fortunately, the Twins got some great news on his latest injury update and Buxton will be back in the lineup for Saturday's tilt against the Texas Rangers.
Byron Buxton Injury Update
Before getting sidelined, Buxton was having his best campaign to date. Through his first 92 at-bats of the year, the 27-year-old recorded 10 doubles, 9 home runs and 17 RBI. He's also accomplished that while slashing at a career-best .370/.408/.772. While his return may be too late to turn Minnesota's season around, at least Buxton will give the fans something to cheer for.
When it comes to winning this season's World Series, the Twins have some of the worst odds in the league. FanDuel Sportsbook has set their odds to +8000, which puts them in a tie with the Kansas City Royals for ninth-worst odds in the league.
