    Player Outlook

    Trevor Plouffe is one of those players who tends to rank higher in Fantasy than his raw numbers would suggest. Back-to-back 80-RBI seasons batting in the heart of an increasingly potent Twins lineup may have something to do with it, especially when coupled with 20-plus homers like he had last year. He hits the ball in the air too much to help at all in batting average, and it's not every year he produces a respectable home run total. For those reasons -- not to mention the fact he may not be long for that potent Twins lineup, if you believe the trade rumors -- Plouffe is a player you should probably pass up in standard mixed leagues.

    • Twins' Trevor Plouffe: Avoids arbitration
      By RotoWire Staff

      Plouffe and the Twins agreed to terms on a one-year, $7.25 million deal Monday, avoiding arbitration, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Plouffe drove in 86 runs and hit .244 last season, down from the career-best .258 mark he posted in 2014. He figures to return in a similar role in 2016, though with Miguel Sano expected to play more regularly in the field, Plouffe may face competition at third base. The 29-year-old also played sparingly at first base last season, so that may be an option, but GM Terry Ryan said back in October that he does not anticipate Plouffe moving to the outfield, where he hasn't played since 2012.

    • Twins general manager Terry Ryan said third baseman Trevor Plouffe is unlikely to play in the outfield, MLB.com reports. That wouldn't be a problem except Ryan also stated he expects Miguel Sano to play regularly in the field, meaning the Twins could have a logjam at the hot corner. It seems like Plouffe could be a player to watch this offseason, as the Twins might look to move their 29-year-old third baseman, if the right deal arises.

    • Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe (illness) is back in the lineup Monday against the Indians, LaVelle E. Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Plouffe was held out of the lineup Sunday with an illness, but it was apparently not a major issue as he's back in the lineup Monday. He'll serve his usual third base duties and bat fifth.

    • Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe is out of the lineup Sunday against Detroit, per LaVelle E. Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Plouffe hasn't had a day off since Sept. 9, so the third baseman was likely overdue. But it does come as a bit of a surprise considering Minnesota is in the midst of a heated playoff race. Plouffe is hitless in five of his last six games, which might better explain his absence.

    • Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe went 1 for 4 with a solo homer in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Angels. Plouffe's hitting streak has reached 10 games, and he is on pace to match or exceed his 2015 monthly high of five homers, set back in May. The third baseman also retains a chance at matching his career-high of 24 round-trippers set in 2012, and his solo shot on Saturday catapulted him past 80 RBI for the first time in his major-league tenure.
