He says no! Byron Buxton rejects Twins’ 70 million extension and would be traded

He says no Byron Buxton rejects Twins 70 million

The Minnesota Twins officially went into sell mode in this MLB trading market, after having sent his star slugger, Nelson Cruz, to the Tampa Bay Rays. This is just the beginning, since it is rumored that also the German Max Kepler and the Puerto Rican José Berríos. However, it is likely that another of those who considered themselves “untouchables” will join the list.

According to information from Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Minnesota Twins would have offered outfielder Byron Buxton a contract extension of around $ 70 million, which he rejected and is likely now if he is traded by the team before the July 30.

Apparently, Buxton was asking for a contract of more than 100 million dollars to sign, which the Twins clearly rejected and had previously warned him that it would be changed if he did not sign a new contract before the deadline, which finally seems to happen with all security.

Buxton will become a free agent at the end of the 2022 season and will be in his final year of salary arbitration for the following season.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I am going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
