Minnesota Twins manager Rocco Baldelli announced that Byron Buxton will undergo labrum surgery Tuesday, and his initial guess is that the outfielder could miss five-to-six months, according to's Do-Hyoung Park.

The Twins officially placed Buxton on the 60-day injured list Tuesday with a left shoulder subluxation.

Buxton initially suffered the injury on Aug. 1, which caused him to miss the entire month.

The 25-year-old returned at the beginning of September but could only manage five games as a defensive replacement and pinch runner.

Buxton finishes the campaign hitting .262/.314/.513 with 10 home runs and 30 doubles in 87 contests for the AL Central-leading Twins.

Minnesota also reinstated right-hander Kyle Gibson (ulcerative colitis) off the 10-day IL and selected the contract of infielder Ronald Torreyes from Triple-A Rochester.
