Minnesota Twins Minor League Report (May 10): Rock Cats Bats Rock

The Twins fell behind early and lost to Max Scherzer, Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers on Saturday. On Sunday, it will be Sam Deduno against Robbie Ray.

YahooSports’ Jeff Passan reported that Byron Buxton will have an MRI on his reinjured wrist. The reports indicate that it is not considered serious, but the Twins are being very cautious.

It was also a full day of baseball in the Twins minor league system. If you missed it, check out A Mother’s Perspective, by Diane Plouffe, Trevor’s mom, as you celebrate your Mother’s Day.
