Here is quick look at some Twins pace given Reynolds 662 AB’s he had in 2009:

Byron Buxton, on pace for 352 strikeouts (53.3% k rate). .497 OPS.

How did we get here?

The 2011-2014 swoon led to a lot of high draft picks . And the losses forced the Twins to look into the future and move veterans like Span and Revere for prospects. While it is ideal for a rebuilding team to time when all their prospects reach the big show, it has worked out a little too nice for the Twins. We find ourselves with too...

When will Buxton be called up?

He is ripping up AA (.880 OPS, 3 HR, 5 3B, 7 SB).

We have seen Terry move position players quicker, like Santana, Vargas, Arcia, and Hicks. We have a need in CF. And I think they would love a little extra buzz this year.

I think after the super 2 deadline he is up.
