Twins activate Buxton, option LaMarre to Triple-A
Byron Buxton is back.
The Minnesota Twins activated the speedy outfielder Thursday following a rehab assignment, reinstating Buxton from the 10-day disabled list.
Buxton is set to start Thursday night against the Los Angeles Angels.
The 24-year-old outfielder has been on the shelf since April 12, when he was placed on the 10-day disabled list while suffering from migraines. Buxton then fouled a ball off of his left foot during a rehab assignment on April 22.
The Twins optioned outfielder Ryan LaMarre to Triple-A, freeing up a space for Buxton on the 25-man roster. LaMarre is hitting .324/.395/.324 in 20 appearances for the Twins this season.
