There's just no stopping Byron Buxton, who sent a baseball to the second-deck of Target Field on Thursday.

The ball traveled 407 feet and had an exit velocity of 104.4 miles per hour.

Buxton has been ripping the cover off the ball lately. He's hitting nearly .350 over his last 25 games, while still playing Gold Glove-caliber defense.

Just check out the chart below – he's getting much better at making contact.
