Per Fox Sports

 

"Minnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to migranes, the team announced Wednesday. The Twins made the move retroactive to April 15, so Buxton can return to action Sunday. In 11 games this season, Buxton has a recorded a modest .195/.233/.244 slash line but has collected a hit in three straight games."

Why wouldn’t it be retroactive to April 13? They last played on April 12.

Was anyone called up?

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

My guess is they couldn’t have gotten anyone to PR in time for the game. As LaMarre is the 26th man, he no longer will head back to Rochester. It’s funny. He could theoretically be active for all 162 games, yet he still played a couple games in AAA.

It's been well documented Buxton deals with serious migraines throughout his career. Is the "blurred vision" line a cheap shot at him? If so, it's not warranted.

Can they consider all the past rain outs as days counting on the DL? Or is it a go forward basis?

Another reason why I sure wish the front office had gone out and gotten a real 4th OFer this winter. Let's hope Kepler's injury isn't serious or we're looking at 2 of Grossman, LaMarre, and Granite every day. Yeesh.

I really hope Buxton finds a way to minimize these.He's had trouble keeping himself on the field so far and the team clearly relies on him for his defense.(Not to mention his upside)

Why would he have blurred vision next? That makes no sense.

How about just two LaMarres?

An irrelevant cheap shot against Buxton and Mauer in a few simple words. Exquisite.

Migraines do weird things to your vision. My wife gets them occasionally. Hers are largely in check, but there were times when she pretty much had to be in a dark room. Her sister is a mess who gets them far worse. Weather changes are a common trigger. Hopefully that's all this is as once summer hits, he should have them less.

 

There's no possible way Buxton could hit well when dealing with that. Given the weather this spring, I woudlnt' be surprised if it goes beyond 10 days.

The article implies but does not state clearly that the migraines never surfaced until that bad concussion.

 

Ugh. That was 4 years ago. I hate it for him, I hate it for us.

So, on to Tampa. LaMarre stays along with 13 pitchers?

If the Twins go back to 12 hurlers, let me be the first to vote for Hildy to be sent down.

IIRC LaMarre has to go back to Rochester for a few days to abide by the 10 day callup rule.

I'd assume Granite or Cave is on the way.

Isn't there an injury exemption for that rule? Or did they change that when they changed the DL time from 15 to 10?

It's great to get out of the cellar ... as long as you bring something with you.

I don't think that's true when there is another player put on the DL.
