Nice to see Buxton prove he isn't perfect. Hope that's the last time we see him lose a fly ball in the sun, though.

Kepler with a double. He's certainly making the most of his time in big league camp.

Hey Paul, where does Kepler start the 2014 season? Does he stay in Fort Myers?

I'm not Paul, but yeah I'd bet Kepler starts the season with the Miracle and they look to promote him to AA by mid season.

I never felt Kepler was "right" last summer in CR. The guy I've watched in AFL and ST is not the same guy. This is the guy that was really impressing the Twins staff last ST before his elbow injury.

Would not have bet on the chances of Buxton hitting in to an inning ending DP there.

Hate to say it, but despite the early HR, this was not a good day for Buxton.

I don't think Buxton has had a good day at the plate yet. Before today, I think he was 2/14 (not sure if this includes "B" games).

I'm not particularly worried about this because this ST should be a huge learning experience for him.

Just another reminder, though, that a prospect is still a prospect and that there is a learning curve.
