Buxton has power, speed and a TON of talent.   He had a dreadful start to the season last year but he quietly was very good later in the season.

 

Look below and see his pre and post all star stats.  He was very good in SEPT and OCT once back from the minors.  He was sent to the minors to fix things and he came back with a vengeance.   This is a SERIOUS Talent.  In the minors he has a .302 AVG, .881 OPS.  He is 23 years old and still raw but once he gets going he will be a serious player.  He has a strikeout problem but his batting coach will obviously work on that.    There is tons of upside with Buxton and worth a stab in fantasy leagues as most leagues have him going 150-170ish. Snatch him.
