2020 Fantasy Outlook
Buxton remains perhaps the most tantalizing and frustrating player in fantasy baseball. He showed growth with fewer strikeouts (career-low 23.1 K%) and increased power (.251 ISO) in 2019. Unfortunately, he once again missed significant time; he dealt with a wrist injury, a concussion, a sore back, a sore knee and finally a torn labrum in his left shoulder which prevented him from hitting after Aug. 1. While the wrist injury was a fluke, the result of a HBP, the other four were caused by him running into a wall or diving. A big part of Buxton's defensive value is his ability to make plays on balls few players can reach, so it may be hard to get him to dial back his aggressiveness. Buxton may be the fastest player in MLB, which results in supreme efficiency on the basepaths. He's got 30-40 potential, but needs to stay healthy. As long as he remains upright, he will be Minnesota's starting center fielder. Read Past Outlooks
