Byron Buxton To Be Promoted to High A-Fort Myers

Attached Image: Buxton.jpg Seth Stohs is reporting that the Minnesota Twins are promoting Byron Buxton from Low-A Cedar Rapids to High-A Fort Myers in time for the Miracle's next game on Tuesday. Buxton has dominated the Midwest League with the Kernels, hitting .340 with 8 home runs and getting on base in 43% of his plate appearances. He’s also shown his top-rated speed, playing center field and stealing 32 bases in a little more than half a season. The 19-year-old’s success has moved him to the top of national prospect lists, including second overall in Keith Law’s midseason review. His promotion means he will be one of the youngest players in High-A ball.

Buxton is expected to fly to Florida on Monday morning, but will not be in Palm Beach in time to play in the Miracle's noon game. He will make his Florida State League debut on Tuesday night in Palm Beach.

Update - SD Buhr tweeted that he has heard from Kernels manager Jake Mauer that the move has been made.
