The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have reinstated designated hitter Byron Buxton from the Paternity List.
Buxton missed the last three games to be with his wife, Lindsey, as the couple had their third child, Baire, on Monday morning in Minneapolis. Buxton has played in 81 games this season, hitting .195 (57-for-292) with 12 doubles, one triple, 17 home runs, 40 RBI, 46 runs scored, a .284 on-base percentage, a .418 slugging percentage and a .702 OPS.
To make room for Buxton on the 26-man roster, the Twins optioned outfielder Trevor Larnach to Triple-A St. Paul yesterday. Larnach played in three games during his most recent stint with the Twins, going 3-for-10 (.300) with one double, one triple, one RBI, one walk and two runs scored.
