Insight: Plouffe only has four home runs, but he's doubled 18 times and driven in 30 runs. He's shown much better plate discipline this season (20.6 O-swing%, 10.5 BB%) and his .309 BABIP is low for a player with a 28 percent line-drive rate.

Description: Minnesota 3B Trevor Plouffe is a .167 career hitter against Tigers starter Justin Verlander.
Insight: Plouffe certainly isn't alone in his failure against Verlander. What really concerns us though, is that he's hitting just .132 in May with a whopping 15 strikeouts in 38 at bats. Until Plouffe (.254, 1 HR, 22 RBI) figures it out, we don't recommend playing him in fantasy.
