Twins put Byron Buxton back on IL with hand injury
The Minnesota Twins placed outfielder Byron Buxton on the 10-day injured list with a left hand fracture.
Buxton suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch during Monday's game against the Cincinnati Reds. It was only his third game back from the IL after missing six weeks with a hip injury. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli indicated that Buxton could be out through at least August. The Twins called up Gilberto Celestino from Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday in a corresponding roster move. He will replace Buxton in center field and bat ninth in Tuesday afternoon's contest against left-hander Wade Miley and the Cincinnati Reds. Max Kepler has been moved up to the second spot in the order in place of Buxton.
numberFire’s models project Celestino for 9.0 FanDuel points and he has a $2,000 salary on Tuesday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Twins have an implied total of 4.6 runs. Miley is registering a 19.9 strikeout percentage and 6.8 walk percentage this season.
