Health Update On Minnesota Twins Oft-Injured Superstar

He underwent knee surgery last September.

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton reported to camp on Friday and reportedly has no limitations to begin spring training.

Buxton underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last September but apparently had no issues during the rehab this offseason and was said to look "good" during a workout on the weekend.

That being said, Twins President of baseball operations, Derek Falvey, said the team will "take it slow in the early going" with Buxton this spring.

That doesn't really come as much of a surprise, given the injury proneness of the star player.

The twenty-nine-year-old played just 92 games last season, posting a .224/.306/.526 triple-slash line, with 28 home runs, 51 RBIs, six stolen bases and 61 runs scored.

He ran considerably less last season as he attempted to play through knee injuries that plagued him all season long. As a result, he also played the majority of his games at DH.

Over the last five seasons combined, Buxton has managed to play just 307 games. When fully healthy, however, he truly is one of the best players on the planet.
