Byron Buxton went Jim Edmonds on amazing diving catch (Video)

Byron Buxton catchMinnesota Twins minor leaguer Byron Buxton made one of the sickest catches you will see this season.

Buxton, the center fielder for the low Single-A Cedar Rapids Kernels, made a diving catch on the warning track to rob Kane County’s David Boke of an extra-base hit during the top of the second inning of his team’s 6-2 win on Monday. Buxton also reportedly made another great catch in the first inning.

In addition to his amazing defense, Buxton, the No. 2 overall pick in last year’s draft, went 3-for-4 with a double, triple, and 3 RBIs. He is now batting .350/.444/.578 through 58 games with the Kernels, which leads the Midwest League in all three categories.

Buxton is battling Miguel Sano for the billing of top prospect in the Twins’ organization. Between the two of them, I’m thinking the rebuilding process in Minnesota won’t be so bad.

Check out some more amazing plays we have shown you this season.
