I think there's a decent shot he gets called up before September if they are still in contention. Plus the thought is to have Torie Hunter while he's still with the team.

Man I sure hope so. He's 2-3 with his 12th triple and a walk so far tonight. He's brought his average up fairly quickly considering how slowly he started the season. And already with 20 sb in just 57 games. He deserves to be up imo

His defense alone is worthy of a call up. Plus he doesn't have anyone blocking him.

Yeah I imagine Hick would slide over to LF so Buxton could man center. We'll see. I hope you're right about the pre-September call-up.

Don't understand why the Twins would allow him to play on team USA when they could use him in CF to start the second half of the yr. this kid is talented enough to make the transition and help the big club

doubt they allow him with the risk of him getting hurt

100% agree. Would make no sense to me. It doesn't do the Twins any good having him play for team USA at this point in his young career.

Wowwwww

Too soon IMO. All the talent in the world but after missing so much development last year this seems rushed.
