Twins | Trevor Plouffe makes appearance

Mon, 30 May 2016 22:54:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (knee) worked out before the game Monday, May 30, against the Oakland Athletics. He then came in as a pinch runner in the seventh inning.

Fantasy Tip: The fact Plouffe was used as a runner is a good sign his knee is sound. Wait to see him make it through a full game before trusting him in your active fantasy lineup and in DFS play.

Twins | Two injured Twins still sidelined

Mon, 30 May 2016 10:46:54 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (knee) and C Kurt Suzuki (head) are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Monday, May 30. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base and is batting first, while C Juan Centeno will start at catcher and is batting eighth. Manager Paul Molitor said Plouffe and Suzuki should be able to play Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez has been very productive at the plate recently and has a .414 batting average with two home runs and three RBI over the last seven days. He should be a starting candidate in all daily fantasy leagues. Centeno has only one hit in his last 10 at-bats and can be avoided in all leagues.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe has a bone bruise

Sun, 29 May 2016 05:53:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe's (knee) MRI exam on his right knee revealed a bone bruise but no ligament damage, and he is hopeful to play against the Oakland Athletics Monday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe is a low-end option at the hot corner in deeper formats, but he's been limited to just 31 games this season because of injuries and owns an underwhelming .248/.270/.376 slash line. Stay tuned for updates, but in the majority of mixed leagues, Plouffe doesn't move the needle enough to be rostered.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:58:37 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (knee) is out Saturday, May 28, due to a knee sprain. 3B Eduardo Nunez is in Plouffe's place and will hit leadoff against Seattle Mariners SP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe still hasn't gotten the full diagnosis on what's up with the knee, with the exception of missing games. Stay tuned for more details and bench Plouffe accordingly. Nunez is worth activating in DFS leagues Saturday night, as he has four homers in May and a nice .310 average against AL pitching.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe sprains knee

Sat, 28 May 2016 00:21:01 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (knee) left the team's game against the Seattle Mariners in the fourth inning on Friday, May 27, with what was called a mild MCL sprain in his right knee. Manager Paul Molitor indicated Plouffe would undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe has struggled of late, 3-for-27 in his last seven games, so perhaps a couple days off to rest his mildly sprained knee would be a blessing in disguise. We know Plouffe has good power, but right now he's only worth owning in AL-only leagues and maybe as a stash candidate in deep mixed setups.

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.
