Twins, Byron Buxton Interested In Contract Extension

Published

on

The Minnesota Twins and center fielder Byron Buxton are reportedly mutually interested in a contract extension, according to The Athletic’s Jim Bowden.

While there is interest from both sides, there is apparently “no traction yet on a multiyear deal”, according to Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press.

Buxton, 24, is still controllable for the next few seasons so the Twins aren’t in any particular rush to get a deal done from a contractual standpoint.

However, Buxton was a big part of the Twins’ improbable 85-win season that ended with a Wild Card playoff berth.

Buxton is also a solid defender in the field and will likely continue to develop into a potential superstar.

Minnesota may want to reward young talent and show players that they are committed to those who they view as cornerstones of the future.
