Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (rib) is scheduled to take live batting practice Friday, July 29, after he took flips in the cage with no issues Wednesday, July 27. If all goes well, he could begin a rehab assignment shortly thereafter.
Fantasy Tip: Plouffe's rehab assignment could start this weekend or early next week. It is uncertain if he will receive as much playing time after he returns from the disabled list but he should continue to have some value in AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (rib) hopes to begin a rehab assignment by the end of the week. Manager Paul Molitor said Plouffe probably will start playing in rehab games next week.
Fantasy Tip: Plouffe probably will spend at least one week in the minor leagues before he is able to be activated from the disabled list. It is not known how Plouffe will be used once he returns to the team, but he should still have some value in deeper mixed leagues.

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (ribs) has progressed to being able to throw from 60 to 90 feet, run lightly and hit off a tee.
Fantasy Tip: Plouffe has played just 58 games this season and sits with a lowly .252/.283/.399 slash line. He's nothing more than a potential stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Additionally, the Twins have some promising young bats hitting while in his absence, so Plouffe's playing time might not be as consistent as it was in the past.

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (ribs) does not have a timeline to begin a rehab assignment, according to manager Paul Molitor.
Fantasy Tip: Plouffe has been limited to just 58 games this season and owns an underwhelming .252/.283/.399 slash line with just seven home runs and 27 RBI. He's not a must-stash bat outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (ribs) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with cracked ribs Monday, July 4. 1B Kennys Vargas was recalled from Class AAA Rochester.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas had a .235-14-53 line at Rochester and has power potential. He'll be an AL-only grab and a matchup play in DFS.

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (ribs) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, July 3, because of sore ribs.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Plouffe will need to miss multiple games because of the injury. He is a solid fantasy option when he is healthy.

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer and OF Byron Buxton are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Sunday, July 3. 3B Trevor Plouffe will start at first base, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting eighth. OF Danny Santana will start in center field and is batting ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Rosario had a .200 batting average with three home runs and nine RBI when he was with the team earlier in the season. He probably should be avoided by most owners at this point. Santana is hitting .083 with one home run over the last seven days and should not be used by owners.
