CEDAR RAPIDS -- Last week, Hall of Famer and Twins legend Rod Carew was in town. He said many of the Twins prospects impressed him -- especially former Kernel Byron Buxton.
“Buxton is on a fast track,” he said. “When you get young players like that, that can play the game and go out and enjoy playing the game and enjoy learning, which I think is the most important thing, they’re going to do well. The young players, I tell them, you work hard at the minor league level and you keep working hard because nobody’s going to give you anything to get to the big leagues. You have to learn the game, understand the game.”
