Buxton, 20, went 3 for 22 (.136) in his first big-league spring training, including a B game on Friday at Bradenton. He figures to open the season at Double-A New Britain.

Right-handers Alex Meyer and Trevor May, second baseman Jorge Polanco and outfielder Max Kepler were other top Twins prospects sent back to minor-league camp. In addition, third baseman Miguel Sano was reassigned before undergoing Tommy John surgery on Wednesday in New York.

UNDER REVIEW

Instant replay was used to review two plays in a span of three pitches in the top of the eighth inning. Both calls were upheld.

The first review involved whether an errant throw from Twins third baseman Waring carried out of play behind first base. Moments later, crew chief Bob Davidson reviewed whether his safe call on John Mayberry Jr.’s slide into home was correct.

Twins video coordinator Sean Harlin told manager Ron Gardenhire he was “99 percent sure” Mayberry was out. However, the lack of a suitable camera angle prevented the call from being overturned.

The second review took 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
