There's no question Byron Buxton is one of the Twins' top prospects, if not THE top prospect.

There's also no questioning his speed. Ex-Twins manager Tom Kelly told MLB Network's Peter Gammons that Buxton is the fastest player he's ever seen.

Well ... let's watch Buxton run.

Here's what Baseball America's Jim Callis had to say about Buxton and fellow Twins prospect Miguel Sano.

On sheer upside, Buxton and Sano immediately jump to the forefront. Buxton is the best five-tool player in the minors, Sano is the top power-hitting prospect in the game and both are having monster seasons. When they hit their primes, the Twins will get a close approximation of what it would be like to have Mike Trout and Bryce Harper in the same lineup.
