I'm not saying he should never get a day off. But if you take the 19 games he's been healthy and extrapolate it over a season it would be 102 games in CF, 34 at DH and 26 days off. That is ridiculous for any regular player but especially one who's possibly the best defender in the game. If healthy, he shouldn't be getting more than 1-2 days off per month, especially if you're DH'ing him too.Honestly, given Buxton's track record over the long haul and this season, I can't fault him for giving him a day off. Just can't. Also I don't think this is a Rocco decision only. It as to be a collaborative effort with Buxton, Baldelli, Falvey, Levine, trainers and agents that this is the plan.
Saying that, I really hope Buxton plays on Friday, my season debut at Target Field.
