Byron Buxton appears on track to start the season as the Twins' No. 3 hitter, which could make the 2017 summer incredibly exciting.

Buxton is a freak of nature when it comes to running the bases and his speed was on display in today's spring training game when he laced a Chris Archer pitch to left field for a stand-up double. How he turned what would have been a single for almost everyone else in the world to a double is beyond us.
