Buxton Injury

After leaving Monday’s series finale against the Rangers with a low-grade right hip strain, the Twins put the All-Star center fielder on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday. Buxton has fought through a number of injuries this season.

The news was difficult, but given everything Buxton has been through this season, Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said there wasn’t much of a choice to make.

As Baldelli put it, “I believe Buck also realizes the best thing for him to do is to take a period of time — hopefully not that long, but a period of time [to] get himself in a better situation physically, so he can come back and do all the things that he’s been doing for us all year long.”

With right hip discomfort, Buxton was removed from Monday’s game in the top of the seventh inning and subsequently had an MRI. Baldelli claimed that the MRI demonstrated activity in “several various areas,” one of which was the hip. Buxton’s injury hopefully won’t force him to lose too much time.

It’s obvious that his knee has been bothering him regularly since April; “I think this amount of time will help that also settle down,” Baldelli stated. While there was some localized pain in the hip, I don’t believe it was serious enough to warrant missing a month of games or the rest of the season.

“It’s for the best that we avoid discussing that. He despises any time away from the game. We’ve talked a lot about that this year, but thankfully it doesn’t appear that we’ll have to broach the subject of his being out for an extended amount of time.

Baldelli has stated that he does not have a timetable for Buxton’s return from the injured list because it will depend on both the medical staff’s and Buxton’s assessment of his condition.

“There are a lot of injuries [where] you know exactly when the player is coming off [the IL], but when you’re dealing with muscle-type injuries and you’re dealing with things like tendinitis-type injuries, swelling, and all of these different things that you’re trying to factor in, we’re just going to have to make sense of it,” Baldelli said. You need to take everything into account, as “it’s not… a straightforward equation.”

Baldelli acknowledged that Buxton has been having issues with his knee and hip for “a while,” but he was unable to pinpoint when the center fielder first started feeling hip pain.

Baldelli remarked, “Sometimes, one is troubling him substantially more than the other, but to attempt to actually monitor each one and know where he’s at each and every day, it’s hard to do.” Even with us, I think he’s growing weary of discussing it. Not being forced to talk about it in front of others. It’s tough, I believe, just to have to talk about it every day and go into detail. I can understand that. To put it bluntly, that’s not a fun experience. However, he practices both frequently in the gym.

This season, Buxton has a.224 batting average, 28 home runs, and 51 runs batted in. Caught Caleb Hamilton was called up from Triple-A St. Paul, and outfielder Alex Kirilloff was sent from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL.

Teammate Carlos Correa said the injury is hard on Buxton and the team, but he texted the center fielder and reminded him now is a time for him to work on himself and recuperate.

In order to keep playing, “I know how hard he’s working every day,” Correa remarked. “It’s difficult, of course, but I’m praying for a rapid recovery so he can be with us as soon as possible.”
