Twins | Brian Dozier returns

Wed, 25 May 2016 08:54:19 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier returned to the lineup Wednesday, May 25, and he's hitting second. 3B Trevor Plouffe is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier is struggling with a .211-1-4 line this month. Dillon Gee has a decent 2.90 ERA, but he doesn't strike much fear in the matchup. However, Dozier's struggles put him in a wait-and-see approach in DFS.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe keeps up hot hitting

Wed, 18 May 2016 15:57:46 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI Wednesday, May 18, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: After a disastrous start to the campaign, Plouffe has settled in nicely. Not only that, he's playing his best baseball of the year right now, as he's collected at least one hit in eight of his last nine ballgames, while batting .371 over that span. The 29-year-old is an acceptable cheap source of power and should be considered in deep leagues if he's available.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe, Brian Dozier not 100%

Sun, 15 May 2016 16:23:13 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe and 2B Brian Dozier were out of the lineup Sunday, May 15, because both have been playing at less than 100%, according to manager Paul Molitor.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe and Dozier have started slow this season, but both are worth owning in most mixed leagues. You may want to avoid both them in daily formats until they are healthy and hitting.

Twins | Several MIN regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:18:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier, 3B Trevor Plouffe and C Kurt Suzuki are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Sunday, May 15. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will play the hot corner and bat third, INF Jorge Polanco will bat sixth and play second base and C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, OF Oswaldo Arcia will bat fifth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Sano is making his fifth start at third base this season but he has struggled over the last two weeks, batting just .179 with two home runs and four RBI in 39 at-bats. Centeno is making his second consecutive start and is worth considering as a value play in DFS after going 5-for-11 with a home run through his first four games this season. Polanco should be viewed exclusively as a source of desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe back in action

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:03:21 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) is back in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe is back off the DL and will return to his starting third base job. If he's out there on your league's waiver wire in deep mixed leagues, scoop him up if you need an upgrade at the hot corner. Plouffe is certainly of capable of returning to the 20-homer mark.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe activated from DL

Mon, 02 May 2016 21:49:13 -0700

The Minnesota Twins activated 3B Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) from the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 2, and optioned INF Jorge Polanco to Class AAA Rochester.

Fantasy Tip: Give Plouffe a game or two to prove his health before trusting him again in seasonal fantasy leagues. The same applies to DFS play.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe set to return from DL

Mon, 02 May 2016 13:28:33 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) is expected to be activated from the disabled list after the game against the Houston Astros Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe is nothing more than a low-end option in the majority of seasonal leagues. However, there is some security in his reliability. He is a strong bet for 65 runs, 20 home runs and 80 RBI and has returned a .248/.312/.426 slash line over the previous four seasons. Eduardo Nunez stands to lose playing time when Plouffe returns.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe rehab update

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 17:01:58 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) is expected to begin a two-game rehab assignment with Class A Fort Myers Saturday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe has been sidelined because of a strained right intercostal muscle and should be viewed as a low-end option at the hot corner in most seasonal leagues. INF Eduardo Nunez has received the bulk of the playing time at third base for Minnesota in his absence, although 3B/OF Miguel Sano has also seen action there on days when he isn't starting in right field.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe progressing on schedule

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:32:36 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) could be activated from the disabled list when eligible Tuesday, May 3, according to manager Paul Molitor. Molitor also noted Plouffe is doing well during baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe has been hitting off a tee and fielding, which highlights his solid progress during his recovery. He is a low-end option at the hot corner in the majority of seasonal leagues, but you know what you're getting from the veteran at this point. He can deliver 65 runs, 20 home runs and 80 RBI, and over the past four seasons, he has returned a .248/.312/.426 slash line. Stay tuned for updates as he continues to work his way back from the injury.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe placed on DL

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 09:09:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right intercostal muscle Tuesday, April 19. SS Jorge Polanco was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: It's unfortunate for Plouffe, as he was heating up with 10 hits in 23 at-bats with a home run in his last six games. For those that need corner infield insurance, he's worth stashing in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Eduardo Nunez, who is hitting .545 (12-for-22) in the early going, figures to see a boost in playing time and can be added for those desperate in deep mixed leagues.
