Trevor Plouffe went 0-for-4 in Thursday's 3-0 setback against the A's.

Plouffe was batting out of the three-hole today after going 11-for-20 (.550) over his last five games, and 12-for-29 (.414) in his most recent at-bats against left-handers. Yeah, Jon Lester put an end to all that nonsense real quick. Plouffe, batting .249/.324/.409, needs a strong end to the season to guarantee himself a spot on the team next year.

Trevor Plouffe singled in a run and belted a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.

Plouffe's first-inning drive was a towering shot that bounced off the top of the left field fence and went over. He then added what was the go-ahead RBI single at the time in the sixth. The third baseman has multiple hits in four of his last five games and has driven in six runs over his last four contests.
Aug 6 - 4:58 PM

Trevor Plouffe went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 8-6 win against the White Sox.

Chicago can't get Plouffe out -- the third baseman has gone 7-for-10 (.700) over the last 48 hours to raise his average from .235 to .248. He'll have to hit plenty more than that to return to fantasy prominence, but Plouffe might just carve out some AL-only value yet.

Plouffe hasn't really been any good since April. The Twins aren't going to replace him during the season, but he'll be a candidate to be non-tendered this winter if he doesn't step it up.
Jul 30 - 11:43 PM

Trevor Plouffe went 3-for-5 with a double, triple and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

The Twins banged out 18 hits on the day, and Plouffe had three of the team's 13 runs scored. He's hitting .245/.317/.409 on the season, and he'll be nothing more than an AL-only option in the second half.

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.
