Twins: Byron Buxton Homers in Cleveland

In between missing time for this and that, Byron Buxton continued to hit a ton for the Minnesota Twins.

In the Twinkies second straight loss to the Cleveland Indians – the Twins are off to their worst start in many years – Buxton homered for the 7th time in 2021.

Also, he had an infield single to give him a multi-hit performance.

To put in perspective how phenomenal Buxton has been all around in 2021, here is a look at the WAR charts in baseball headed into tomorrow:


1. Mike Trout: 1.8

t2. Byron Buxton: 1.7

t2. Ronald Acuña Jr: 1.7


1. Mike Trout: 1.7

t3. J.D. Martinez: 1.5

t3. Ronald Acuña Jr: 1.5

Buxton is hitting .390 with a .429 on-base percentage to go along with an .847 slugging percentage. Something at the plate has been unlocked for the outfielder and he’s putting it all together.
