Yep. 6-8 weeks. Would be a season ender.

Or just let it heal depending on the break. If his hand still hurts after x-rays were inconclusive/negative its probably the the hamate bone.

glad I did not drop.  Just added a replacement and losing a pitcher.

Well so the bruise is on the bone near ring and pinky finger base.  Wonder if he'll be back by start of next week.

When everything starts clicking, an injury occurs, glad he dodged the bad one, but I still wonder how long will this affect him.

2 for 2 today. He's definitely healthy. Love the new mechanics and approach. Already on my shopping list for next season. Gotta get those Byron bucks $$$

What are the plans if you have him in keeper league 

 

Keep him.

 

I picked him up for free right as he was hearing up. I look forward to rooting for him over the next half decade.

We only keep 5. He will be 1 of my 5 as of now.

It depends on what players you currently have and what the parameters of your league are (limited # of keepers? Auction? Rd? etc.)

 

But I'd caution anyone who chooses a player with a higher floor, the Whit Merrifields and Tommy Phams of the world, (who are having a better year) choosing them over this kid.  Buxton has a very good chance of spectacularly failing again, but he could also end up a top 3 player in all of baseball as soon as next yr.

Is this real or hot streak 

 

Lol have you just ignored the past 2 pages of threads? The people here have already done the research for you.  Read them and judge for yourself.

Long and short of it: maybe real, maybe not--most likely somewhere in the middle but a very decent probability of a real breakout.
