Scouts and others, it seems, just can't help but gush about Byron Buxton.

Buxton, 19, added to his list of accolades Tuesday, when he was named the J.G. Taylor Spink Award, which honors the Topps/Minor League Player of the Year.

Here's a scouting video I found on Buxton, if you're into that.

The previous three winners  are Wil Myers (2012), Matt Moore (2011), Mike Trout (2010) and Buster Posey (2009). Besides Buxton, the other teenagers to win the award are Trout, Delmon Young (2005) and Andruw Jones (1996).
