The only question about the star outfielder was whether or not he could stay healthy for a full 162-game season.
Buxton has remained healthy this season and is putting up some pretty solid numbers.
His average isn’t great, as it sits at just .236, but he’s hitting for power like never before.
Buxton has 18 home runs, 32 RBI, and a .905 OPS.
Buxton hit his 18th of the year last night against the Seattle Mariners as the Twins picked up a 3-2 win.
Codify tweeted a video of the home run with a caption explaining that this most recent home run gives him six in his last 16 at-bats.
This gave Byron Buxton 6 HRs in his last 16 ABs. 😬pic.twitter.com/SsuHb93RQY

Buxton Locked In
Buxton truly is a special player.
The Twins have known that for a long time.
But when he’s healthy, he can put on a show.
He’s proving that if he can stay healthy, he can be a real force at the plate and has the potential to be one of the best players in all of baseball.
He can also play a pretty mean center field.
But he’s in the midst of a pretty solid stretch at the plate.
He’s finally showing what kind of player he can truly be.
This is a guy who was highly touted as a prospect but struggled to stay healthy.
But now he’s healthy and he’s doing some damage at the plate, which is one of the many reasons why the Twins are where they are right now, at the top of the AL Central division.
Buxton is locked in right now and he’s putting on quite a show at the plate.
