Byron Buxton went 0-for-4 in his pro debut today (but he isn't a bust)

Twins No. 1 pick Byron Buxton went 0-for-4 Friday morning in his pro debut with the Twins' rookie team in the Gulf Cost league.

He flied out three times and took a called third strike.

Here's the boxscore.

Friend of Upload Seth Stohs (@SethTweets) is learning a lesson about being the bearer of such news.

A few minutes after sharing the news, Seth tweeted:

This is weird... I'm getting responses from people who think I am saying Buxton is a bust by noting he's 0-4 in his debut. Wow!

Good thing Seth didn't tell people that Buxton stranded the tying runner on his with his fly out in the final inning.
