Back on the field playing? Or back on the field practicing ?

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :)

Yesterday he was coaching first base, so hopefully today he gets to play.

We are grooming him to be Ullger's replacement... excellent!

Yeah, that doesn't sound good (and I think Kepler replaced him). Taken out after grounding out to 3rd

From milb.com:

"Byron Buxton made his first appearance since May 8 and went 0-for-2. Buxton made a tremendous catch to save two runs, robbing Goeddel of extra bases with a leaping, tumbling grab in dead center field in the third inning. Buxton exited the game in favor of Kepler after being scheduled to only play three innings."

Tell him to stop diving for balls until he's in the majors! ;)

Yes, that all makes sense, but if the guy is made of glass, then he's made of glass. He has to play with no restrictions and if he keeps getting hurt, that is the way it is. Given his prospect status and everything about him, I think he'll be just fine.
