2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: MORE FRUSTRATION FOR BYRON BUXTON OWNERS AS HE HITS DL WITH MIGRAINES

                                                                

Now he knows how we all feel.  That would be the collective response to anyone who has owned Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton over the last few seasons as he has made it an art form to disappoint the masses with his annually ugly offensive numbers despite possessing a world of natural talent.  2018 apparently looks like it will be no different as Buxton was placed on the 10-day DL on Wednesday with persistent and what the team has called severe migraines.  Having had some big hype and expectations once again attached to his name coming into the season after putting forth a big second half of 2017, Buxton goes into the DL stint with just a .195 average with 0 home runs and a 25.6 K.9 rate.  While the latter is improved from his 29.4 mark a year ago, Buxton is once again struggling to hit offspeed stuff and we are right to wonder if it will now ever happen.  Add in the DL stint and Buxton is doing his best to drive everyone crazy this season. Obviously, Buxton needs to be stashed considering what it cost to get him but the early returns on this season are not promising.
