2 for 2 5 RBI, at his ADP 177, its hard not to take a chance at him.

 

Worse case scenario he goes 0.220 40 SB 10 HR, since he will play everyday. The ceiling is much higher.

Or he gets sent to AAA after two months because he is hitting under .200.

Buxton is like a Thursday night with the boys. You know you got work in the morning, you tell yourself eh I'll just have a pint, quick snack... 3 hours later you're 2 shots and 5 pints deep throw

Looks hot now....   then you draft him.

34 for his last 35 in SBs.  If only he could steal first.  Horrific hit tool will always be downfall.  These elite athletes who are taken on ceiling usually falter on hit tool.  They can run, they play D, but they can’t hit.  At price point it’s not a bad investment but I wouldn’t expect him to magically learn how to hit overnight.

That's not even close to the worst case scenario. Have you already forgotten what he did last year?? Well brace yourself because I'm going to remind you!

 

.156/.183/.200     5SB    0HR

I picked him up in my dynasty league. I'm not ready to give up yet. His second half in 2017 showed that he could be a budding star (207 AB, .300 AVG, 11 HR, 13 SB). Last year was a lost year to a hairline fracture in his toe, and migraines. All reports are very positive so far this spring. Today was a good start. I get the guys that say he can't hit, because other than the second half of 2017 he hasn't. Buxton plays extremely aggressive in the OF, and he needs to relax a little to avoid the wall crash injuries. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he becomes the star he was supposed to be. He's only 25.

Is he really a lock to play everyday? 

Yes of course he is going to play everyday. Why would you think otherwise?

It's just that a lot of those days might be in Rochester!

 

 

 

 

When he's not hurt I mean.

Lol yea I meant with the Twins. He actually has to make the 25 man right?

I own Buxton in a dynasty and while It’s a nice start to Spring Training it’s hard to get excited since I’ve/we’ve been burned before. 

In a redraft I’d take a flier late in the draft but if he keeps hitting well in ST someone will reach for him. 

He has a lot of talent so there is huge potential. He bulked up a bit during the off-season and hopefully he spent a lot of time in the cage. 

Does anyone know what pitchers he hit homers off of?

Buxton has contact issues, inconsistent approach, hasn't shown us much, and we say we're not interested... but by the end of spring all you see is the athleticism, the past hype, and thought it could magically be the year and we'll probably invest more than we should. 

Why? Because it will be fun as hell... and Shin Soo Choo will be our AM Tylonol.
