Byron Buxton returns to Twins lineup Wednesday
Byron Buxton will start in center field Wednesday for the Minnesota Twins' game against the Detroit Tigers.
Buxton was sidelined with a non-COVID illness recently, but is back for today's tilt with the Tigers. He'll bat fifth in the order, while Jake Cave moves to left field and Brent Rooker sits.
Buxton has come blazing out of the gates this season, with 3 home runs in 4 games and a 1.900 OPS. Our models project him for 12.7 fantasy points in today's game while FanDuel has set his salary at $3,700.
