It took Twins center fielder Byron Buxton just 3 games to resume making incredible catches

That had to hurt.

Byron Buxton is still recovering from a fractured big toe on his foot, but even a crack in one of his bones can't slow him down or stop him from slamming into the wall in center field. 

In his third game back from nearly a month on the disabled list, Buxton dropped a soft line drive to left-center and turned it into a stand-up double. This is a single for most guys, but Buxton is otherworldly fast. 

Then, in the fourth inning, he took an extra-base hit away from Ian Kinsler with a spectacular catch while slamming into the center-field wall. 

Fortunately, Buxton bounced right up and stayed in the game. 

Also, before you go - check out Torii Hunter's interview with Buxton and his former teammate in L.A., Mike Trout. Fox Sports North aired it during its pregame show and it's definitely worth a baseball fan's time.
