LEADING OFF: Twins’ Buxton, Reds’ Votto added to IL
Byron Buxton’s breakout season has been put on pause — a disappointing turn for the Minnesota Twins’ oft-injured center fielder. Buxton was added to the 10-day injured list Friday with a strained right hip. The 27-year-old is hitting .370 with nine homers and five stolen bases. He’s played more than 100 games just once in his big league career. Outfield prospect Trevor Larnach was called up from Triple-A. Meanwhile, Reds first baseman Joey Votto could be sidelined for a month with a broken left thumb.
