Twins’ Buxton Suffers Broken Toe

Twins outfielder Byron Buxton recently had an MRI on his foot that revealed a hairline fracture on his big toe. Consequently, Buxton is expected to miss some time from gameplay but the team hopes that he will recover quickly from the injury. However, the team expects the outfielder to be ready to join the team soon since the injury isn’t too significant. In regards to the injury, Buxton stated, “I'm going to always try to play with it. I will probably let it sit for the next couple of days or let the symptoms go down a little bit and see what I can tolerate” He suffered the injury when he fouled a ball off his foot during a minor league rehab game for Class AAA Fort Myers. He remained in the game for its entirety and discovered the injury after it was over.

Broken toes may cause a lot of pain and should be treated as soon as possible. If you have any concerns about your feet, contact Dr. Yeon A. Shim from Roselle Podiatry Group. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.

What Is a Broken Toe?

A broken toe occurs when one or more of the toe bones of the foot are broken after an injury. Injuries such as stubbing your toe or dropping a heavy object on it may cause a toe fracture.

Symptoms of a Broken Toe

  • Swelling
  • Pain (with/without wearing shoes)
  • Stiffness
  • Nail Injury

Although the injured toe should be monitored daily, it is especially important to have a podiatrist look at your toe if you have severe symptoms. Some of these symptoms include worsening or new pain that is not relieved with medication, sores, redness, or open wounds near the toe.
