Encouraging News About Buxton?
Terry Ryan reports that Buxton is progressing and has a timetable for return, although he didn't reveal it. I put a question mark on this new thread because until he starts playing again, I personally won't be relieved until he is playing in games.
Let's hope he is playing in games soon!

Buxton still isn't able to take batting practice, but Ryan said the former No. 2 overall draft pick had progressed to dry swings and tee work in addition to taking fly balls in the outfield.

Ryan said there is no organizational fear surgery will ultimately be needed.
Buried inside on a bullet point (which shows those rules for All Star games and offseason leagues rosters are highly flexible):
The Twins haven't ruled out sending a third prospect to the Futures Game on July 13 at Target Field. Several injuries to other players selected could open the door for someone like Triple-A Rochester right-hander Trevor May.

Correa (a shortstop for the World Team) won't be playing... and they only have one 2B. Could that open up a spot for Jorge Polanco, potentially?
As for the US team needing a pitcher, I'd rather see Stewart than May. Seeing May means he's in the minors for another month.
