The Pan-Am Games, which run from July 10-26 in Toronto this summer, still actually include baseball (unlike the Olympics).

And per a tweet from Jon Morosi of FOX Sports and the MLB Network, it sounds like Team USA has a keen eye on a certain Twins prospect for the tournament:

USA Baseball wants @Twins top prospect Byron Buxton for Pan-Am Games roster if he’s not called up by July, source says.”

As noted by Morosi, Buxton’s OPS has climbed to .815at Clas AA Chattanooga (thanks to 24 extra base hits, including an absurd 11 triples). The Pan-Am Games are only a month away, sohe’d have to be on a pretty fast track to be called up before then.
