Twins | Trevor Plouffe returns to action Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:21:36 -0700

Minnesota Twins INF Trevor Plouffe (groin) is back in the starting lineup versus New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, June 26, batting fifth and playing first base. In addition, C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and hit eighth, while OF Danny Santana starts in center field and bats ninth. 1B Byung-ho Park, C Kurt Suzuki and OF Byron Buxton are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: DFS players may want to wait a game or two before using Plouffe again after he missed several days due to a strained right groin. Centeno and Santana have not been swinging the bat well recently and should be viewed strictly as desperation sources of salary cap relief.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe could play Sunday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 11:09:17 -0700

Minnesota Twins general manager Terry Ryan said 3B Trevor Plouffe (groin) is unlikely to require a stint on the disabled list for his strained right groin. Plouffe fielded grounders prior to the game Saturday, June 25, and could return to the starting lineup versus the New York Yankees Sunday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: If Plouffe winds up missing more games, INF Eduardo Nunez would be the most likely candidate to see action at the hot corner, with INF Eduardo Escobar getting playing time at shortstop. Plouffe is hitting .250 with five home runs and 23 RBI through 200 at-bats this year and is a low-end option at third base in AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe not playing

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 07:38:52 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (groin) is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Saturday, June 25. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar is currently on a seven-game hitting streak and has nine RBI during that span. He should be an attractive starting option in daily fantasy leagues because of his recent success at the plate.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe hopes to avoid DL

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:10:01 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (groin) is optimistic he will avoid the disabled list. He might avoid all baseball activities Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe has been limited to just 210 plate appearances this season and turned them into only 21 runs, five home runs and 23 RBI with a .250/.273/.380 slash line. He's a low-end option in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Eduardo Nunez projects to see time at the hot corner, which will open more at-bats for Eduardo Escobar during Plouffe's absence.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe leaves game Thursday

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:57:34 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (groin) left the game Thursday, June 23, against the Philadelphia Phillies due to a mild right groin strain. He's considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Luckily it appears to be a minor issue for Plouffe, who was starting to come on lately. In fact, entering this afternoon's contest, the veteran third baseman was 9-for-22 with six runs and three RBI over his past six contests. For the year, though, he owns an unspectacular .250/.273/.380 line.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe has big stat line

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:57:46 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI Wednesday, June 22, against the Philadelphia Phillies, raising his average to .254.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe has managed three multi-hit games over his past six outings, raising his average from .234 to .254 just since June 15. It's been a tough go for Plouffe this season, but he is enjoying a hot streak and is a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues, deeper mixed formats and DFS play.

Twins | Byung Ho Park on the bench

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:37:47 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Wednesday, June 22. 3B Trevor Plouffe will serve as the designated hitter. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar is hitting .389 with two home runs and six RBI over the last seven days and should be an attractive starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Plouffe and Nunez are also solid options for owners.

Twins | Byung Ho Park not in the lineup

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:32:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, June 19. 1B Joe Mauer will serve as the designated hitter. 3B Trevor Plouffe will start at first base, while SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base. SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar is hitting .412 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and is a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Mauer and Nunez should be starters in most mixed leagues, while Plouffe should be a candidate in deeper leagues.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe on the bench

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 08:40:54 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Saturday, June 18. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez has slowed down a bit this month but still has at least one hit in eight of his last nine games. He is a decent starting candidate in most leagues. Escobar is hitting .385 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days and should have value in daily fantasy leagues.

Twins | Joe Mauer out vs. lefty

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:27:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Thursday, June 16. As a result, SS Eduardo Escobar draws into the lineup at shortstop and is hitting sixth. SS Eduardo Nunez moves to third base and 3B Trevor Plouffe is serving as the designated hitter. Also, 2B Brian Dozier is hitting third in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer is in the midst of a resurgent season thanks mainly to increased plate patience. He's squaring up more balls at the plate and has become an asset in most seasonal leagues with a .285/.386/.417 slash line and seven homers and 26 RBI. Escobar has lost considerable playing time to Nunez this year and has very little fantasy value remaining. Dozier has had a down year but is more of a contrarian play this evening in the three-hole in daily setups.
