Byron Buxton Projections | Platoon Splits (RHP vs LHP)

Byron Buxton projected to 150 Games vs RHP and LHP with 12 team mixed fantasy value. This helps identify a player's platoon value for fantasy baseball based on pitcher handedness. These projections by Steamer are a MUCH better indicator of a hitter's platoon splits than in-season stats since it involves multiple years of data and has been properly regressed to league averages. Since games are neutralized across players, values for everyday players may look smaller than for preseason/season to date/rest of season where they benefit from playing time advantages vs other players. In general, left-handed hitters have larger platoon splits.

Byron Buxton Fantasy Outlook For 2022

Grey Albright Player Summary
Mr. Prorater drafts Buxton in the 1st round. 'It’s true, he prorates out to a 45/25/.300 season. Don’t see any of your 1st rounders doing that!' By the way, after Buxton signed a 7-year deal with the Twins, I thought, 'Wow, Mr. Prorater must work for the Twins.' Mr. Prorater, 'If the Twins only fielded a team of twins, they’d have Jax Kepler in right field, and Janice Garver at 1st base.' Interesting stuff, Mr. Prorater! So, one of these years, Buxton might actually stay healthy and give you a 40/20 season, then the following year he’ll be drafted in the top 25 overall and screw all of us. Or, he’ll do it for two years straight and metaphorically stab us repeatedly with his IL stints the following year. All of the guys in this tier are an ulcer, but I have them ranked in this order, because I like my ulcers to come with at least one example of a guy doing well for a whole season. Buxton didn’t even stay healthy for the whole 60-game season! I’m going to project him for 471 ABs, and that would be the top mark of his career. Also, one final note, if you do draft Buxton this year, and this is the year he stays healthy for 580 ABs, you should have an asterisk on your fantasy championship. You just got lucky.
