Byron Buxton, the Minnesota Twins top-prospect this season, is hoping to make his major league debut this season. His preparation begins this week at spring training. Watch the video to see Buxton and teammate Josh Willingham take batting practice in Fort Myers., Fla.

A few weeks ago, Buxton talked to KSTP after receiving the Twins Minor League Player of the Year Award during TwinsFest. You can watch that video here.

Buxton is expected to start the 2014 season at Double-A New Britain. He could make his major league debut later this season or in 2015.
