byron buxton

The Minnesota Twins placed two key players on the injured list Friday, sending outfielder Byron Buxton to the 10-day IL and right-handed reliever Brock Stewart to the 15-day IL.

The move for Buxton (right knee inflammation) is retroactive to Thursday.

He left Wednesday’s game in Chicago and has played in 28 games this season, hitting .250 (23-for-92) with eight doubles, one triple, one home run, 11 RBIs and 12 runs.

Buxton has not played more than 92 games since 2017.

Minnesota recalled utility player Austin Martin from Triple-A St. Paul. Martin, a first-round pick (fifth overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2020, has played in 22 games with the Twins this season, hitting .226 (14-for-62) with a home run and six RBIs.

Stewart (right shoulder tendinitis), whose IL stint is also retroactive to Thursday, has made 13 relief appearances for the Twins, posting a 0.68 ERA in 13 1/3 innings with six walks and 17 strikeouts.

In a corresponding move, the Twins recalled left-handed pitcher Kody Funderburk from St. Paul. Funderburk is 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in 11 games, striking out 15 in 13 1/3 innings with Minnesota.
