Twins and 3B Trevor Plouffe avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.8 million contract.

It's a sizable raise for Plouffe, who was arbitration-eligible for a second time this offseason. The third baseman batted .258/.328/.423 with 14 homers and 80 RBI last season and will hit near the middle of the Twins' order in 2015.

Trevor Plouffe underwent surgery Monday to repair a fractured left forearm.

Trevor Plouffe is done for the season after being diagnosed with a fractured left forearm.

Plouffe suffered the injury Wednesday after hitting his left arm on the Diamondbacks' A.J. Pollock's knee as he slid into third base. It's not clear at this point if he'll need surgery. While it's certainly an unfortunate ending to his season, Plouffe should be fine by the time spring training rolls around. His season concludes with a .258/.328/.423 batting line, 14 homers and 80 RBI.

Trevor Plouffe had a four-hit effort against the Diamondbacks Tuesday, finishing 4-for-4 with a run scored.

The only thing lacking in Plouffe's game was some run production, as all four of his hits went for singles and none drove in a run. Still, it was another good game for the third baseman, who has 15 hits in his last 38 at-bats. The hot stretch has his overall line at .258/.326/.423.

Trevor Plouffe delivered a walk-off RBI single in a 5-4 win over the Indians in 10 innings on Friday.

Danny Santana and Brian Dozier each singled to begin the 10th inning before Joe Mauer was intentionally walked to load the bases. Kyle Crockett managed to get rookie Kennys Vargas to strike out swinging, but Terry Francona brought in Josh Tomlin to face Plouffe, who dropped a single into center field to end it. Plouffe hasn't been able to maintain the form he showed in August, but he's had a productive year on the whole, batting .251/.321/.422 with 14 home runs and 79 RBI.

The homer was Plouffe's 14th of the season as he homered in back-to-back games. It's been a quietly productive year for the 28-year-old, who has 76 RBI and 67 runs scored to go with his 14 homers. Plouffe is hitting .251/.322/.427 overall.

Trevor Plouffe went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

Plouffe hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning, his 12th home run of the year, and added an RBI walk in the ninth. The homer was his fifth in August, a month in which he hit .317 with 24 RBI. He's a streaky hitter but when he's on, as he is currently, he's a mixed league asset for his power alone.

Trevor Plouffe hit his 11th home run of the season in Friday's loss to the Orioles.

His solo shot in the seventh was the only offense of the game for the Twins. Plouffe was pretty quiet from May through July, but he's batting .299 with four home runs and 21 RBI through 24 games this month.

In addition to driving in three, Plouffe scored four runs thanks to the Twins' offensive outburst. For the season, he has nine home runs and 63 batted in. His overall slash line isn't particularly shiny, though, as he's hitting .242/.309/.396 this season.

Trevor Plouffe hit a three-run home run in the ninth inning, his only hit in four at-bats, but the Twins were unable to come back in Monday's loss to the Royals.

The Royals went into the bottom of the ninth inning with a five-run lead, but Aaron Crow allowed two one-out singles before surrendering a three-run home run to Plouffe. The third baseman has had middling numbers following a hot April. He stands with nine home runs, 58 RBI, and a .244/.313/.400 slash line.
