Phillies signed INF Trevor Plouffe to a minor league contract.

Plouffe opted out of his minor league deal with the Rangers earlier this month and needed just a couple weeks to catch on in another organization. The 31-year-old will provide organizational depth at the corner infield spots.

Rangers released INF Trevor Plouffe.

Plouffe agreed to begin the year with Triple-A Round Rock and was 3-for-11 (.273) with a double and six walks through his first four games, but he apparently had a change of heart. The 31-year-old will attempt to find a more promising situation elsewhere.
Apr 10 - 7:52 PM

Rangers re-signed INF Trevor Plouffe to a minor league contract.

Much like Bartolo Colon, Plouffe was released over the weekend, but the two sides expressed interest in getting a new deal done. The 31-year-old will provide some useful depth in Triple-A and figures to contribute in the majors at some point this season.

Rangers released 3B Trevor Plouffe.

Plouffe was told that he wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster, so it was just a matter of when they'd release the 31-year-old third baseman. He reportedly was considering an assignment to Triple-A Round Rock, and he could return to Texas on a minor league deal if he doesn't find a full-time job with another MLB organization.
Mar 23 - 4:42 PM

Trevor Plouffe has been informed that he will not be on the Rangers' Opening Day roster.

Plouffe was brought into Rangers camp in mid-February as insurance for veteran third baseman Adrian Beltre, but Beltre has held up well all spring. Plouffe is reportedly mulling whether to ask for his release or accept an assignment to Triple-A Round Rock.
Mar 21 - 12:53 PM

Trevor Plouffe was scratched from Monday's lineup with left intercostal tightness.

He's dealt with intercostal issues in the past, so there's no reason to push it. Plouffe is in camp with the Rangers this spring as a non-roster invitee.
Feb 26 - 1:54 PM

Trevor Plouffe said Sunday that it's unlikely he'd accept a minor league assignment if he doesn't make the Rangers' Opening Day roster.

Plouffe is in camp as a non-roster invitee and it sounds like he'll use the opt-out clause in his contract if he doesn't make the team. He batted just .198/.272/.318 across 100 games for the A's and Rays last season.
Feb 18 - 11:34 AM

Rangers signed INF Trevor Plouffe to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic first reported that the deal was close and's Mark Feinsand says it's done. Plouffe, 31, batted only .198/.272/.318 across 100 games for the A's and Rays last season, so it's not a surprise that he's going to have to settle for a minor league pact. He'll try to win a bench job.
Feb 12 - 7:18 PM

Rays purchased the contract of INF Trevor Plouffe from Triple-A Durham.

Plouffe was recently outrighted to Triple-A after being designated for assignment, but he'll return to the major league roster for the final month. The 31-year-old has hit just .178/.268/.247 with one homer, two RBI and a 25/8 K/BB ratio in 82 plate appearances with the Rays this season.

Rays sent INF Trevor Plouffe outright to Triple-A Durham.

The 31-year-old passed through waivers unclaimed and will continue to function as organizational depth for the Rays. He hit a paltry .178/.268/.247 with one homer, two RBI and a 25/8 K/BB ratio in 82 plate appearances with the Rays.

Rays designated INF/DH Trevor Plouffe for assignment.

Plouffe batted just .178/.268/.247 in 31 games for Tampa Bay, after hitting .214/.276/.357 through his first 58 games of the season with Oakland. The 31-year-old should be able to find another team eventually, but he's probably off the fantasy radar for good.

Trevor Plouffe is at DH and batting seventh in his Rays debut Monday versus the Reds.

Plouffe was acquired from the Athletics over the weekend for cash considerations, after being designated for assignment. He had batted just .214/.276/.357 with seven homers and 15 RBI in 199 plate appearances with Oakland and probably won't get much of a jolt in fantasy value with the move to Tampa Bay.

Rays acquired INF Trevor Plouffe from the Athletics for cash considerations.

The A's designated him for assignment on Thursday and are happy to get anything in return for the veteran infielder. Plouffe hit just .214/.276/.357 with seven homers, 14 RBI and a 58/16 K/BB ratio in 199 plate appearances with the Athletics. He's expected to join the Rays on Monday.
Sat, Jun 17, 2017 11:13:00 AM

Athletics designated INF Trevor Plouffe for assignment.

His roster spot has been absorbed by top prospect Matt Chapman. We're guessing this wasn't what Plouffe had in mind for his 31st birthday. Plouffe has had a tough year offensively, hitting just .214 with seven homers and 58 strikeouts in 182 at-bats. Unless he's claimed off waivers or the A's can work out a trade, Oakland will be on the hook for most of Plouffe's $5.25 million salary.
