Twins top prospect Byron Buxton was not in the lineup Friday or Saturday for the Fort Myers Miracle. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Buxton has re-injured his wrist sliding into third base.

Passan tweeted that Buxton will have an MRI on the ailing wrist. 

(See below for his series of tweets.)


Buxton opened the season on the disabled list after injuring his left wrist in spring training attempting a diving catch. He was activated May 4 and made his 2014 debut with an 0-for-4 performance. In his latest game action, Buxton went 1-for-5 with a double Thursday.

Passan tweets that the injury is not believed to be severe.

We'll follow up with any pertinent information as soon as we know more.
