Byron Buxton ‘fine’ despite collision with outfield wall

Byron Buxton

Byron Buxton says he is fine despite his collision with the outfield wall on Tuesday night.

Buxton leaped into the fence in front of the bullpen at Target Field as he tried to rob Yasmani Grandal of extra bases in the second inning against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Minnesota Twins center fielder left the game with a bruise knee. He is listed as day-to-day but says he is fine.

The Twins do not play on Wednesday, which will give him a day to rest. The former No. 2 overall pick is batting .258 with an .807 OPS this season. He has become known for making spectacular catches, even if they have their affects on his health.
