It wasn't a great debut for Byron Buxton in AA. In his first three at bats, he struck out. 

 

However, just now, he was ranging toward right center for a ball and collided with Mike Kvasnicka. Both went down. Trainers and paramedics surrounded Buxton. He appears to be leaving the field in an ambulance.

 

Best Wishes, Byron!

Hope for the best, wish him good health, quick recovery. 

I just convinced myself this is cliffhanger at  the end of chapter 5 of his autobiography:

Bucking the Odds: The true story of how Byron Buxton became a multiple MVP winner.

The Twins officially have the worst luck bringing up top prospects. Hope for Byron's sake it's not as serious as it looked.

Craziest thing...I changed my status to "May have to move back to Minny if Buxton gets a September call-up." Minutes later Bleacher Report alert tells me he's been carted off the field. I think I better give up on the Twins for their sake.

Hearing: Buxton dove and his head hit Kvasnicka's hip. Buxton was knocked out.

 

Both are heading to the hospital.

He must have sold his soul or something. This is getting ridiculous! Best wishes to Byron, not for baseball reasons, but for his personal health and safety

here is some interesting info:

 

 


Dom Amore ‏@AmoreCourant

Kvasnicka caught the ball, and was also injured. He was able to walk away, but was taken to hospital with Buxton.

 

Sounds like the ball was to the right fielder (who caught it) Not sure whether he yelled for it or not.And Buxton was overzealous and kinda caused this himself...

Mike Berardino ‏@MikeBerardino· 33s 
Just got off the phone with Felton Buxton, Byron's father. Asked if Byron is all right. "I really don't know. Nobody else knows right now."

 

Mike Berardino ‏@MikeBerardino· 5m 
Felton Buxton said he and other family members were already booked on flights to Hartford on Thursday morning. Still in Georgia tonight.

 

Mike Berardino ‏@MikeBerardino· 4m 
I asked Felton Buxton if he at least could say that his son Byron was responsive following the collision. He said he wasn't sure. #MNTwins

#mntwins VP Mike Radcliff tells me Buxton "was responsive after the collision" according to reports he'd received from Buxton's agent.
