Four games of Byron Buxton

Looking for the silver lining in yet another Twins loss Friday night: Byron Buxton had two hits, including a blindingly fast triple.

Buxton, according to Statcast, went home-to-third in 10.69 seconds. For context, a batter getting to first in under 4 seconds is rare.

Buxton has had at least one hit in each game since his return and has goosed his batting average for the season to .200. That's a positive.

On the other hand, he's also had at least one strikeout in each game since his return.  That's less good.

  1. If he can keep and build on his AB confidence, I think he is here for keeps.
