Athletics' Trevor Plouffe: Confirmed as primary third baseman
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Athletics general manager David Forst confirmed Wednesday that Plouffe would serve as the team's primary third baseman this season, CSN Bay Area's Joe Stiglich reports.

The Athletics officially inked Plouffe to a one-year contract Wednesday after he agreed in principle to the deal a week earlier, and management immediately helped clear up any ambiguity of the 30-year-old's role with his new team. Though Ryon Healy found success as the team's everyday third baseman in the second half of last season, he's expected to split most of his time between first base and DH in 2017, opening up the hot corner for Plouffe, who had been a full-time player for the Twins for much of his seven seasons in the majors. Plouffe is coming off a season in which he hit a career-best .260 over 319 at-bats, but a 31-point drop in ISO and a variety of injuries that combined to cost him roughly half the season ultimately made him a disappointment for fantasy owners. The move to Oakland probably won't aid Plouffe to a dramatic recovery in the power department, but better health alone may be enough to make him a capable corner infield option in AL-only leagues or deeper season-long formats.

Athletics' Trevor Plouffe: Signs one-year deal with A's on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Plouffe signed a one-year deal with the Athletics on Tuesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Plouffe is coming off an injury-plagued 2015-16 campaign with the Twins that saw him slash .260/.303/.420 with 12 homers, 35 runs and 47 RBI. The earliest reports are that Plouffe will see the majority of starts at third base with second-year infielder Ryon Healy taking starts at first and designated hitter. Either way, Oakland lands a huge piece that could be due for a bounce-back year.

Trevor Plouffe: Red Sox interested
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plouffe has drawn the interest of the Red Sox, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports.

Plouffe, who hits from the right side, could fill a corner infielder role, complementing the left-handed hitting Mitch Moreland at first base and third baseman Pablo Sandoval, a switch hitter than hits better from the left side. The 30-year-old Plouffe is said to be open to a utility role if that's what it takes to extend his major league career, but the Red Sox would be looking for no more than a one-year commitment.

Twins' Trevor Plouffe: Placed on outright waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plouffe has been placed on outright waivers and is expected to clear Friday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

If he does indeed clear waivers, Plouffe will become a free agent. Plouffe was entering his third winter of arbitration eligibility and would have been due north of $7 million again in 2017. He battled a variety of injuries this past season which limited him to 84 games. The 30-year-old has hit .247/.308/.420 in 723 career games at the major league level.

Twins' Trevor Plouffe: Placed on 15-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Plouffe (oblique) was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

The Twins went ahead and deactivated Plouffe prior to Saturday's game, which may be a sign that he will indeed miss the rest of the season after suffering a strained oblique and strained intercostal muscles Tuesday. Reports from earlier in the week suggested Plouffe was "doubtful" to play again this season, but the team has yet to formally rule out a return.
