VIDEO: Minnesota Twins prospect Byron Buxton launches two-run bomb

  • David Whitlock

The Major League Baseball world is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the widely renown number one prospect Byron Buxton of the Minnesota Twins.  And on Saturday, Buxton announced that he might be ready.  If you have any question about his power, check out this easy swing and long drive off of Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchinson (via MLB.com):

The pitch hung a little bit and Buxton knew what to do with it.  The 20-year-old was the second overall draft pick in 2012 (behind Houston Astros prospect Carlos Correa, who is rated number 8 in baseball) and, despite only making high-A last year, should find himself in a major league uniform sooner than later!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
