    Passan: Buxton to have MRI on Wrist

    https://twitter.com/JeffPassan/statu...66787777392641

    From the above tweet from Jeff Passan, Byron Buxton is going to have an MRI on his wrist. He reinjured the wrist sliding into third base.

    In a follow-up tweet, they don't believe it to be serious, but being very cautious. Hopefully that is the case.

    Wrist MRI is good and he should have it, but there is a larger issue here that has not been mentioned at all by the Twin Cities press (and that is a troubling fact, by itself) : The original injury was a fielding injury. This time he did re-injure his wrist when he tried to slide head first on a base. The Twins benched Sano for admiring a home run he hit off a former teammate who was pestering him constantly when with the Twins. What Buxton did, was way much worse because it really impacted him. I don't know if it is a coaching issue or Buxton, but someone should install to the kid that you do not slide on head first and touch the base with your healing wrist. Period.

    Well I'm sure the Twins medical staff knows what they're doing.

    Very thankful the parent club (Twins) have had a season somewhat worth watching this year. Because the minors this year has STUNK!

    No Sano, No Rosario, and No Buxton so far. May has been horrible.

    Vargas and Meyer respectable. But otherwise...nothing at AA level or higher within earshot of the big club.

    I guess Santana is up...and in a few at bats, even down 0-2 today vs Scherzer, he didn't look one bit fazed. Far cry from our other shortstops.

    Its a good thing we got the number 1 farm system, right? Pretty soon it will be the number 1 DL system

    Not true.

    Yohan Pino, Kris Johnson, Logan Darnell, Chris Parmelee, Trevor May, AJ Achter, Matt Hoffman, Matt Koch, Cole Johnson, Jorge Polanco, Mitch Garver, Ivory Thomas, JD Williams, Kohl Stewart, Brandon Peterson, Aaron Slegers and company, based on their performance so far, would have to disagree with you

    Yeah, there have been a lot of good things about the farm this year if you can get past the injury problems at the 1 and 2 spots on the prospect list.

    How do you tell a kid not to do something that comes natural...sliding head first into third is no big deal to me. You start making a kid think or overthink things you are dead wrong. Th minor have been down this year...kepler, harrison, walker have been underwhelming. Polanco and maybe vargas are only guys having decent season as hitters. Some AAAA guys like pino mean nothing to me. Younger pitchers have been good along with may and meyer...but last season at this time we were much more optimistic about farm (at least I was).

    I would hope they gave him a wrists brace while on the base paths (provided he gets a stand up single)

    TOTALLY taken out of context. Read the whole thing...

    So to prove it...

    What's the future career WAR of each players on your list from AA or AAA? And then specifically, what are their contributions in 2014 or 2015 to the MLB club?

    As the 3 players I listed (Sano, Rosario, Buxton) were to likely make appearances in late 2014 and many expected to be contributors in 2015.

    He got hurt playing baseball, making a baseball play. He re-injured it making a baseball play. Can't we just leave it at that? Injuries happen. Doesn't need to be blame.

    Funny, I was ripped for saying I'd bench a player for sliding head first.....and I still believe that. Slide feet first. This sucketh.

    Minor quote on Buxton injury

    Quote from Rob Antony tonight about Buxton's injury after the MRI (emphasis mine), from here:

    It was an aggravation of his injury, but it's not any worse, just aggravated
    I don't know about what he meant, but this is what aggravated really means.

    I feel that the future of the Twins is solid with that guy at the helm...

    An unimportant dissection of semantics. I couldn't care less if Antony knows the medical usage of aggravated.

    Antony was probably speaking informally, but words do matter.
