Removed Twins Star after awkward slide vs Red Sox

Minnesota Twins star Byron Buxton just can’t seem to be staying healthy. Against the Boston Red Sox on Friday, he was removed after an awkward slip.

Byron Buxton has not played more than 100 games since the 2017 season. Despite being one of the most talented outfielders in all of baseball, he didn’t make it onto an all-star team, in part because he just can’t stay healthy. Still, the twins broke the bank to re-sign him this offseason.

Buxton’s injury history is a laundry list of items. Best not to reflect. But even after a dream start to the 2022 season, the 28-year-old simply cannot stay healthy.

He had three homers and four RBIs in just three games through opening weekend. Suddenly protected in the lineup by the likes of Carlos Correa, Buxton’s production was expected to skyrocket.

Byron Buxton injury: Twins star injured against Red Sox

On a routine pop-up for Red Sox second baseman Trevor Story, Buxton got lucky into a field error. He then drove around the bases to make a busy double. Unfortunately, his slide to second base wasn’t as nice and he had to be pulled from the game. The update, according to Dan Hayes:

“Byron Buxton was injured sliding into second base on a leadoff pop-up double. He knew right away and hit the ground as he finished his slide. ran away under his own power”

Considering he was able to run away under his own power, we can only hope the injury was minor.

We’ll learn more about this story as it develops.
