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 | Kurt Suzuki erupts for six RBI

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 22:58:21 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki fell just short of hitting for the cycle on Tuesday, June 21, recording a single, two two-run doubles and a two-run homer against the Philadelphia Phillies to finish with a career-high six RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Both of Suzuki's doubles could have been triples, exemplifying the kind of night the 12-year veteran - with six career three-baggers to his name - had in this 14-10 affair. Considering nearly a quarter of his four home runs and 25 RBI this season came Tuesday, owners are advised to hold off on making a mad rush to pick him up off waivers in mixed leagues.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki successful with new bat

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 14:15:38 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki started using an ax-handled bat May 31, and is hitting .333 with two doubles, two home runs and nine RBI during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has increased his fantasy value because of his recent hot streak and should have value in some deeper mixed leagues. He should be used in all AL-only and two catcher leagues.

Twins | Juan Centeno catching Saturday

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 10:17:20 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki will receive the day off against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese Saturday, June 4. C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Centeno has been a surprisingly productive source of cap relief this season, batting .320 with two doubles, a home run and five RBI in 25 at-bats versus right-handed pitching. He's worth considering for daily fantasy lineups today.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe, Kurt Suzuki back in there

Tue, 31 May 2016 16:33:37 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (knee) and C Kurt Suzuki (head) are back in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Tuesday, May 31. Plouffe is hitting fifth and Suzuki is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki avoided a trip to the 7-day concussion DL. He's a fantasy afterthought while hitting only .200 (19-for-95) with one home run and 10 RBI. Plouffe is a midrange fantasy starter at third base in deeper mixed leagues. He's sporting a .246 average with three home runs and 11 RBI.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Centeno has gone hitless in each of his last four games and should be avoided in all leagues for now.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki day-to-day

Sun, 29 May 2016 06:02:09 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki (head) left the game in the third inning Saturday, May 28, because of concussion-like symptoms. The team said Suzuki passed the concussion protocol and is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki is a non-factor outside of cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues, and he is even a poor option in those formats given his .200/.257/.284 slash line this season. Juan Centeno projects to handle backstop duty in the meantime, but he is nothing more than a desperation own and start in all fantasy formats.
