Twins | Trevor Plouffe out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 12:15:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto Sunday, Oct. 4. INF Eduardo Nunez is playing third base and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: With the Twins eliminated from the playoff picture, Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) gets a chance to play the hot corner Sunday. He is batting .281 with four home runs and 20 RBIs through 185 at-bats this year.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe out with illness

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 07:50:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (illness) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 27. SS Eduardo Nunez is starting at third base and batting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Plouffe ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday, and check back for an update on the severity of his illness. Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) owns a reverse split and is actually a better hitter against right-handed hurlers. However, this is a great spot to tee up some savings at FantasyScore with Nunez, as Wolf ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) owns a 5.91 ERA through his six starts this season.

Twins | Brian Dozier sitting against Angels

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 08:39:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 20. SS Eduardo Nunez draws into the lineup and is batting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has slowed down significantly in the second half with a .206/.286/.361 slash line. It isn't out of the question to surf the waiver wire for an upgrade in seasonal leagues. Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) offers sneaky upside at FantasyScore with a .313/.350/.443 line against right-handed hurlers this season.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe sitting out vs. Royals

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 15:27:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 9. SS Eduardo Nunez is starting at third base and is batting sixth against Kansas City Royals SP Kris Medlen Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has been sneaky good against righties this season with a .315/.353/.454 slash line over 117 plate appearances. He is also then a sneaky FantasyScore play Wednesday, especially at his low cap hit. Plouffe ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has really slumped since the All-Star break with a .206/.271/.388 slash line, and at this point, he is nothing more than a cavernous mixed and AL-only option.

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 | Miguel Sano sitting vs. 'Stros

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:37:53 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Miguel Sano is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. SS Eduardo Nunez is starting at third base and batting seventh against Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Sano ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has provided seasonal owners a huge home run and RBI boost since joining the Twins. It is likely a strategical night off against a tough lefty Friday. Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a desperation flier at FantasyScore Friday.

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 | Danny Santana not starting

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:06:46 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, July 26. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .150 in limited playing time this month and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez starting at DH

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:51:47 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez will serve as the designated hitter and hit sixth in the order Tuesday, July 21, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and RHP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .333 against righties through 77 plate appearances. He'll be an option of cap relief for owners, and he'll be a strong option to plug in at short stop.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez starting at shortstop

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 13:42:01 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP David Price Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: It is a daunting matchup against Price, so Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief Thursday. He has a .206/.229/.471 slash line over 35 plate appearances against southpaws this season.
