Analysis: The standout defensive center fielder was hurt when he hit the wall hard while making a tough catch on Todd Frazier's deep fly ball in the second inning. Buxton did take his at-bat in the third, but was replaced by Zack Granite in the field before the start of the fourth. Obviously, his availability for the rest of the postseason will be determined by whether the Twins can advance.

Buxton went on the DL July 15 with a left groin strain.
Analysis: Buxton's groin has healed but his recovery has been delayed by a recent bout of migraine headaches. The plan is to have the 23-year-old play in Triple A through the weekend and activate him for Minnesota's series in San Diego which begins Tuesday. Zack Granite has played well in Buxton's absence, so the Twins don't have to rush their regular center fielder back into action.
