Minnesota Twins’ Byron Buxton turns frustration into motivation and muscle

MINNEAPOLIS—Byron Buxton hasn’t forgotten his extended, unexpected stay in the minor leagues last summer.

The inconsistent Twins center fielder is eager to show the experience made him stronger. After an offseason in the weight room, one look is about all it takes.

“People tell you to take that frustration as fuel,” Buxton said. “And that’s something I did, as well, to help me do what I want to do.”

What, no fights on the Internet?

Twins hope to ‘make amends’ with Byron Buxton and his agents

At least he’ll only have one option left at the end of the year. With his play this year I can’t see him winning his grievance.

While Buxton, a Platinum Glove Award winner in 2017, will be eligible for salary arbitration for the first time this winter as a so-called “Super 2” player, he will fall 13 days shy of the service time threshold that would give him three full years in the majors. Barring a successful grievance from Buxton’s agents, B.B. Abbott and Al Goetz, the Twins now gain an extra year of club control over Buxton for 2022, his age-28 season.
