Byron Buxton says he wants to remain with the Minnesota Twins despite the lack of a long-term contract.

Buxton says that negotiations on an extension were still open, even though his agent rejected the latest offer from the team last week.

"Everybody knows I want to be here. It's just one of those things. We didn't come to an agreement, but it's not the first time it's happened. We've been in numerous conversations before, and it's not the end. You never know how many more chances they have to communicate with each other," Buxton said.

"I'm here with the Twins. I'm under contract with the Twins next year, and hopefully I'm with the Twins to end my career. It's unfortunate at the moment."
