Description: Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe had a grand slam, going 3-for-5, with five RBI in the, 13-3, victory over the White Sox on Sunday.
Insight: Plouffe hit his grand slam in the third inning and then drove in another run on a single in the fourth. That was Plouffe's fifth homer of the season. He also had 15 RBI while hitting .278.

Description: Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe hit a walk off home run in the 11th to lift the Twins to a, 3-2, victory over the Indians, but will sit on Saturday.
Insight: It's probably not a coincidence that he's just 1-for-11 with five strikeouts against Saturday's scheduled starter Danny Salazar. Eduardo Nunez will get the start at the hot corner.

Insight: The home run was Plouffe's only hit of the game as he went 1-for-5. Maybe this will get him going because he is hitting just .143 this season.

Description: Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe is a career .360 hitter (9-for-25) with a pair of home runs against Cleveland right-hander Corey Kluber.
Insight: Plouffe has not started the season very well (.133 BA), so it's questionable whether he can take advantage of this favorable matchup.

Description: Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe underwent surgery to repair his fractured left forearm according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Description: Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe tweeted on Thursday that he will not need surgery to repair his fractured left forearm.
Insight: Plouffe broke his forearm on Wednesday when A.J. Pollock's leg hit his arm on a slide at third base. He will not need surgery but will be in a cast for six-to-eight weeks. We expect him to be fine for spring training next year.

Description: Minnesota third baseman Trevor Plouffe is an ugly 1-for-12 with five strikeouts against Royals starter Danny Duffy.
Insight: Plouffe has not hit for the power he has in past seasons. He hit 24 in 2012 and fantasy owners were hoping for more than the 14 he blasted last season and the eight he's hit in 100 games this year. Avoid him Friday.

Description: Minnesota third baseman Trevor Plouffe is questionable for Monday's game against Houston due to a bruised left foot.
Insight: Plouffe has hit .249 with 31 doubles, eight homers, 54 RBI and a .726 OPS this season, making him a low-end third baseman.

Insight: Plouffe has hit .241 with 22 doubles, five homers, 38 RBI and a .720 OPS this season so he's not in great demand by fantasy owners.

Description: Minnesota third baseman Trevor Plouffe has been placed on the disabled list with a left oblique strain.
Insight: Plouffe suffered the injury in the bottom of the third inning Saturday when he attempted to make a diving stop on an Ian Kinsler ground ball. He has hit .241 with 22 doubles, five homers, 38 RBI and a .720 OPS this season so he's replaceable in fantasy leagues.

Description: Minnesota 3B Trevor Plouffe went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Monday against the Rangers.
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 1-for-13 (.077) with seven strikeouts against Detroit ace Max Scherzer.
Insight: Plouffe has zero hits in his last 16 at-bats. Add an unfavorable matchup and he shouldn't be in any fantasy lineups on Saturday. Update: Plouffe is not in the Twins starting lineup for Saturday

Cold5/9/2014 12:04:00 PM
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.
