MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton has been sidelined again, this time after being hit by a 94 mph fastball.
On Tuesday, the club announced Buxton is on the 10-day injured list with a left hand fracture. Buxton had just returned from the injured list on Saturday after missing 40 games due to a right hip strain.
Buxton was struck by the fastball from Reds’ starter Tyler Mahle in the fourth inning on Monday’s game. He played one more inning before being diagnosed with a broken left hand, and was pulled.
The Twins recalled outfielder Gilberto Celestino from Triple-A St. Paul to replace Buxton on the 26-man roster.
