MINNEAPOLIS -- Despite an injury-plagued 2014 campaign, Byron Buxton remains MLB.com's No. 1 overall prospect, and he is joined by five other Twins prospects on MLB.com's Top 100 Prospects list, released Friday night.
Buxton, 21, played in only 31 games in the Minor Leagues last year due to a left wrist injury and a concussion sustained in his first career game at Double-A in mid-August before suffering a broken finger that required surgery while he was playing in the Arizona Fall League. But the center fielder still emerged in front of Cubs prospect Kris Bryant to be ranked as the game's No. 1 overall prospect for the second straight year.
