He hit .204/.257/.322 with a .580 OPS in 45 games during his most recent call-up, and has a career slash line of .199/.248/.319 at the MLB level.

Buxton has hit .305 with 49 RBI, 11 doubles, 11 home runs and three triples through 49 games in Triple-A this season.

Buxton was originally drafted by the Twins in the first round of the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft.
