Twins | Trevor Plouffe on the bench

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:56:35 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Sunday, Aug. 30. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should be back in the lineup soon. Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .269 with three home runs in limited playing time this season and could be an option if owners are looking to save some money.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe on paternity list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:48:48 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe was placed on the paternity list Wednesday, July 29, and SS Jorge Polanco will be called up to join the team in a corresponding move. It's not set in stone that Polanco will return to the minors when Plouffe is back, according to manager Paul Molitor. SS Danny Santana has been struggling and hasn't started since the weekend. Polanco hit .284/.309/.352 with six doubles, six RBI and a stolen base in 22 games for Class AAA Rochester. His defense is a work in progress, as he had 24 errors in 83 minor league games.

Fantasy Tip: Eduardo Nunez started at the hot corner today for the Twins, and Miguel Sano (ankle) is healthy enough to play third base now, too, meaning Polanco is unlikely to have much fantasy value in the short term with Plouffe not expected to miss much time.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe has day off

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 07:50:32 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe is sitting out Wednesday, July 29, with 3B Eduardo Nunez hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting just .167 this month and isn't a good selection on FantasyScore. It's a little curious for Plouffe to be sitting out when the team just had an off day Monday, but Francisco Liriano is a tough draw.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe on paternity list

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 22:54:27 -0700

The Minnesota Twins placed 3B Trevor Plouffe on the paternity list Tuesday, July 28, as his wife is expected to give birth to their first child Wednesday, July 29. SS Jorge Polanco was recalled from Class AAA Rochester to take his roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) will be sidelined until at least Friday, so FantasyScore players can avoid him for a few days.

Twins | Joe Mauer out against LHP

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:50:56 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, with 3B Trevor Plouffe hitting third and playing first.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is 4-for-12 (.333) lifetime off CC Sabathia and has a .282-4-12 line this month. He's a good start on FantasyScore today.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe plates four

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 05:27:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe hit a grand slam for his 12th home run of the season and drove in four runs during his 2-for-4 showing in the Twins' 5-0 win over the Oakland Athletics Friday, July 11.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has found a nice groove at the dish with 15 runs, five doubles, three home runs, 12 RBI, two stolen bases and a .324/.377/.549 slash line over his past 19 games. Still, he is a low-end third base option in the majority of formats. While streaking at the plate, though, Plouffe boasts nice upside for FantasyScore players at a low cost.

Twins | Miguel Sano likely to DH

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 08:48:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Miguel Sano is likely to serve mainly as the designated hitter with 3B Trevor Plouffe already serving as the team's everyday third baseman. Sano was hitting .274 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games with Class AA Chattanooga this year before his call-up. He combined to hit 35 home runs in 123 games in the minors in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Sano ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has plenty of raw power to make a big fantasy impact in all leagues in the second half of the season, even though he'll likely have plenty of swings and misses. If his expected debut Thursday he has a nice matchup against Kansas City Royals starter Chris Young. Consider him an acceptable and likely popular value pick on FantasyScore.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe drives in four

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 21:06:46 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe went 2-for-4 with two doubles and four RBI in a 7-2 win over the Chicago Cubs Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is hitting below .200 in June, but he does have 38 RBI on the year and enjoys a prime spot in the middle of Minnesota's lineup. He isn't a great play against Jon Lester Saturday, but Plouffe could be worth gambling on at FantasyScore against friendly matchups.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe sitting out

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 09:48:21 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7. 3B Eduardo Nunez will be the starting third baseman and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has posted solid numbers in his limited plate appearances, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe frequenting the base paths

Sat, 16 May 2015 06:53:00 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe went 1-for-4 Friday, May 15, to extend his on-base streak to 24 games, and he is currently hitting .344 during an eight-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is a nice source of cap relief for FantasyScore players while he is playing well. He is also a worthy option in deep mixed leagues. The matchup against opposing hurler Alex Colome Saturday projects favorably for Plouffe in daily contests, too.
