Twins optimistic after Byron Buxton carted out of practice with foot injury

Byron Buxton

Byron Buxton was carted out of the Minnesota Twins’ practice game on Monday after suffering a foot injury, but the team is optimistic about his health.

Buxton was trying to track a Nelson Cruz home run in center field when he went down. He was examined by a trainer and taken off the field on a cart.

Buxton went for imaging on his foot, but the team is optimistic after an initial test did not show anything serious, according to manager Rocco Baldelli.

Buxton, the No. 2 pick in 2012, has dealt with injuries throughout his career. He is returning from shoulder surgery and has not played more than 140 games in a season during his career. He’s been recognized for being an incredible defensive player.
