Forgotten No Longer!
by Harry Cummins
On Jan. 19 of this year, Craw's Corner ran a piece entitled Baseball's Forgotten 5-Tool Talent. In the article we admonished readers to watch closely Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton this season, despite being largely forgotten by most of baseball.
A mere two games into the 2019 exhibition schedule, Buxton has come to the plate 5 times for the Twins. In those five spring training at bats, Buxton has gone home run, single, double, single, and home run.!!
5 for 5 with 10 RBI's!!!
Buxton had no home runs and 4 RBI's in 28 regular season games with the Twins in an injury plagued season last year.
Sure, it's only 5 at bats in two exhibition games. But we are just saying.......
