Twins get ‘relatively good’ news after Byron Buxton’s MRI comes back clean – The Athletic

BOSTON — The MRI came back clean. The twins will not immediately replace him on the active roster. Byron Buxton stays at Fenway Park with his team.

All of those signs, along with the collective sigh of relief heaved by Twins officials on Saturday, tell you everything you need to know about the prospects of the Twins midfielder, who left Friday’s game early with a right knee pain . Rather than charting a long-term recovery plan after yet another devastating injury, the twins are instead focusing on treatment in the hope of Buxton returning to the field in the next week.

“We’ve received relatively positive news,” said Twins manager Rocco Baldelli. “We will take some more time to investigate him further over the next few days. He will also be examined by our doctor and we will start there.”

Buxton’s season looked potentially in jeopardy, just one game in Friday’s game. After sliding into second base, Buxton hit the ground twice and yelled into his helmet after immediately going to the dugout. Although Buxton was able to walk off the field unaided, the situation was not looking good.

“You’re like, ‘Oh boy, what just happened?'” said Derek Falvey, president of the Twins’ baseball operations. “I’ll say as I walked away and sort of on my own, I thought maybe he was just pinched something or he might have a sprained (knee) – cut – bruise – cut – bruise. I tried to stay level-headed at that moment until we found out more.”

The initial examination found that Buxton’s knee showed no structural damage. Twins get ‘relatively good’ news after Byron Buxton’s MRI comes back clean – The Athletic
