Twins Sign Buxton 12 Jun 12

The Twins have reportedly agreed to terms with first-round draft choice Byron Buxton of Appling County, Georgia. The “Star-Tribune” reports the 18-year-old, number-two overall selection arrived in Minneapolis on Monday and met with Twins officials. Terms of the signing bonus have not been released, although the recommended level for that draft slot is just more than six-million-dollars. Buxton is expected to attend tonight’s Twins game against the Phillies before an eventual assignment with the Twins’ rookie team in Fort Myers.
