Twins manager Paul Molitor indicated Monday that Byron Buxton could hit his way into the leadoff spot this spring.
It came up when Molitor was asked where Joe Mauer would bat this season. "How Buxton comes along, how that’s going to affect (Brian) Dozier in some regard, there’s just a trickle-down there in where people could go," Molitor said. "I still like Joe up there somewhere, against right-handed pitching in particular." Buxton has spent nearly all of his time with the Twins at the bottom of the batting order, although he did hit leadoff in last year's season finale (he homered and doubled). The former top prospect finished with a .287/.357/.653 line and nine homers last September and certainly has breakout potential in 2017. Hitting leadoff would obviously boost his fantasy appeal, and he could wind up there eventually even if he starts the year hitting low in the order. Feb 27 - 5:47 PM
