Video: Twins' Buxton shows off his speed, power


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.

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.
