Byron Buxton Sacrifices His Body for Meaningless Catch


Twins outfielder Byron Buxton may be a disaster at the plate, but if there’s one thing he can do it’s track down fly balls in the outfield. Simply put the guy covers ground like goddamn gazelle out there, and he flashed the leather again today as he robbed Carlos Santana of extra bases with this brilliant catch:

No doubt a great grab by Buxton there, but if I’m a Twins fan I’m annoyed that my uber prospect is sacrificing his body in a lost 2-8 game. You might remember that Buxton had headache issues earlier this month after crashing into the wall against the Red Sox, so yeah, he might want to dial it down just a bit.
