Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano are two of the most talked about prospects in the minor leagues, recently landing at No. 1 and No. 3 in Baseball America's top-50 prospects.
For good reason, the Twins' coveted duo garnered considerable buzz Sunday at the All-Star Futures Game at Citi Field on Sunday.
But neither Buxton nor Sano did much showing off in the game itself, which the U.S. squad won 4-2. Sano, who has risen to the Twins' Double-A team in New Britain, started for the World squad, going 0-for-2 with walk and hit-by-pitch.
Buxton came off the bench for the U.S. team, and proceeded to strike out in his only two at-bats.
In a moment one won't see much of as long as the pair remain entrenched in the Twins' future plans, Sano launched a ball to the warning track in the ninth inning, only to see Buxton catch up to it and reel it in for the out.
