Recent Update

4/11:Byron Buxton's rough start to the season continued on Tuesday afternoon. The young outfielder went 0-for-3 against the Tigers with three strikeouts to drop his batting average to .069 on the season. Buxton now has 17 strikeouts through seven games this year, as he is just 2-for-29 at the plate. So far, there haven't been any discussions about sending Buxton back to Triple-A, but that has to be a concern for his fantasy owners if this slow start drags on much longer. For now, Buxton is still worth a roster spot, as he showed last September just how dynamic he can be at the plate. Just leave him on the bench for now and hope he gets straightened out sooner rather than later.--Matt Terelle - Rotoballer
