2022 Player Outlook
Buxton had an impressive 2021 season, until it was again shortened due to injury. Stop me if you've heard that before. While he was on the field, he hit .306 with 19 home runs, 50 runs scored and nine stolen bases. Minnesota signed him to a lengthy extensions that is rather heavy on incentives and bonuses. 2022 is a different year, but it's the same story for Buxton. He's incredibly talented and can positively impact all of the categories in fantasy, but is the juice worth the squeeze given his injury history? He's played in more than 100 games just once in his career. However, it's hard to ignore the potential upside if he were to stay healthy, as his 162 game average over the past three seasons is a .277 batting average with 36 home runs, 101 runs scored, 91 RBI and 22 stolen bases.
