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 | Two injured Twins still sidelined

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

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 | 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 | Oswaldo Arcia, Kurt Suzuki resting Saturday

Sat, 14 May 2016 11:13:58 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia and C Kurt Suzuki are out of the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Saturday, May 14. OF Eddie Rosario will play left field and bat seventh, while C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario is just 4-for-21 over the past two weeks and is batting .198 for the season, so he is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Centeno is 3-for-8 at the plate and should be viewed as a means of desperation cap relief in daily contests.

Sun, 08 May 2016 10:21:11 -0700

OF Darin Mastroianni will start in center field and is batting seventh in the lineup. C Juan Centeno will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario is the only one of the three that has had some success at the plate this season but he is hitting only .193. Owners probably should look for better options to use and avoid Rosario, Mastroianni and Centeno.
