Byron Buxton Newsbeat

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Cubs prospect C.J. Edwards dazzles early; Twins prospect Byron Buxton hurt late | MiLB.com

Buxton is hurt again.

Two notable players who fit that profile appeared in Monday’s 3-3 tie between Mesa and Salt River, with each experiencing starkly different outcomes. C.J. Edwards—the Cubs’ No. 5 prospect and No. 51 overall prospect—fired three perfect innings for Solar Sox, while the Rafters’ Byron Buxton—a Twins prospect ranked the best in baseball—sustained yet another injury.

Buxton was taken to a hospital after the game for X-rays on his left middle finger, which he hurt while diving for a ball in center field during the ninth inning. He was limited to 31 regular-season games in 2014 because of recurring wrist problems and a concussion resulting from an outfield collision.
