Trevor Plouffe went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Plouffe, who hit 24 home runs in 422 at-bats in 2012, hit just his sixth home run of the year and his first since May 30. He also singled and doubled in the game. It's been a rough season for the 28-year-old, who has dealt with a strained oblique and is hitting .245/.319/.410 when he's been on the field.
Jul 6 - 6:30 PM

Twins activated 3B Trevor Plouffe from the 15-day disabled list.

Plouffe wound up missing exactly 15 days with a strained left oblique. He had a .241/.320/.400 batting line, five homers, and 38 RBI in 64 games before the injury.

Trevor Plouffe (oblique) is not expected to need a rehab assignment.

Plouffe will go through full pre-game workouts all weekend and will be activated on Monday when first eligible if all goes well. The third baseman has batted .241/.320/.400 with five homers and 38 RBI for the Twins this season.
Jun 27 - 5:37 PM

Trevor Plouffe (oblique) will meet the Twins in Texas to work out with the team on Friday.

Plouffe will work out with the team throughout the weekend, after which point he may return from the disabled list or he may go on a short rehab assignment. Either way, it appears he won't need much more than the minimum stay before being activated.
Jun 25 - 10:17 PM

Trevor Plouffe (oblique) is hopeful of returning from the disabled list when first eligible on June 30.

Oblique strains typically result in longer than two-week absences, but Plouffe is evidently recovering rapidly and could be back before the end of the month. The third baseman has hit .241/.320/.400 with five homers and 38 RBI for the Twins this season.
Jun 20 - 5:41 PM

Twins placed 3B Trevor Plouffe on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Plouffe suffered the injury during Saturday's contest. A strained oblique typically requires more than a minimum stay on the disabled list, so the Twins probably aren't counting on getting the third baseman back this month. Pedro Florimon has taken Plouffe's spot on the roster.
Jun 15 - 10:44 AM

Trevor Plouffe left Saturday's game against the Tigers with a left oblique strain.

Plouffe was replaced at third base by Eduardo Nunez and will more than likely be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Plouffe picked up an RBI on a sacrifice fly before exiting on Saturday and is batting .241/.320/.400 with 38 RBI in 64 total games this season.
Jun 14 - 6:31 PM

Trevor Plouffe had a two-run homer and a double in a losing cause on Wednesday.

Plouffe was in an 0-for-20 slump before going 4-for-8 the last two days. It was only a matter of time before the homers started up again; he has just two all season, but he has 16 doubles. Still, we'd expect pretty mediocre overall numbers the rest of the way.
May 14 - 11:43 PM

Trevor Plouffe took his third straight 0-for-4 on Thursday, dropping his average to .254.

Plouffe has racked up 17 strikeouts in his last 10 games, losing about 150 points off his OPS in that span. Those who picked him up in mixed leagues after his hot start should consider moving on.
May 8 - 3:33 PM

Trevor Plouffe went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

Plouffe delivered a two-run double in the third inning, his 14th of the year. It was also his third in three games, raising his OPS to .835. He'll likely regress some after his torrid start, but his power should keep him relevant in deep mixed leagues.
May 4 - 5:32 PM

Trevor Plouffe (triceps) went 1-for-5 with a two-run double in his return to action Wednesday.

Plouffe left Saturday's game with a left triceps contusion, but he didn't actually miss a game due to multiple rainouts for the Twins. He should be fine moving forward.
May 1 - 3:08 PM

Trevor Plouffe left Saturday's game against the Tigers because of a left triceps contusion.

Plouffe is day-to-day. Eduardo Escobar moved to third base and Pedro Florimon entered the game at shortstop.
Apr 26 - 4:34 PM

Trevor Plouffe went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the Twins' 8-3 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Plouffe accounted for eight total bases on the day, doubling twice, walking and also legging out his first triple of the year. Plouffe also scored twice in the game. The third baseman has cooled down slightly since his red hot start to the season, but he's still hitting .313/.420/.493 for the year.
Apr 20 - 5:49 PM

Trevor Plouffe hit his first home run of the year in the ninth inning of Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Plouffe is known mostly for his power, but he's managed to stay fantasy relevant through the early weeks of the season by posting a high batting average and exercising surprising plate discipline. Despite the homer being his first, Plouffe has slashed .314/.426/.451 with nine RBI thus far. The average will go down -- he's just a .243 career hitter -- but the homers should increase, keeping him on fantasy radars in deep mixed and AL-only leagues for another year.
