Twins Trevor Plouffe wants to cement his place at third
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe is completely aware of the threat that Miguel Sano brings when it comes to the third base spot. Sano is considered by many to be a can't-miss player. But Plouffe is trying not to let that affect him or his play. 

“You can’t think about anything like that,” Plouffe said. “You can’t worry about what other people are saying about you. I’m more focused on getting this organization out of this rut that we’ve dug ourselves over the last four years.”

After moving around the infield for years, Plouffe seems to have found his place at third. The 28-year-old has a batting average of .245 with 62 home runs, 224 RBI and 398 strikeouts in five seasons.

Twins' Molitor likes what he has in OF Shane Robinson
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Twins manager Paul Molitor is impressed with what the team has in outfielder Shane Robinson , according to twincities.com.

"Robinson's been great for me," the Twins' manager said Thursday. "He's very much into the game, whether he's playing or not. He's always watching, making observations. He does the fundamental things very well: base running, defense, takes a good at-bat."

Robinson is currently tied for the team-lead in doubles this spring with four. He has been batting second and playing center. 

Molitor also points out that Robinson has been better against left-handed pitchers as opposed to right-handers.

"I think he takes good at-bats against right-handers," Molitor said, "but obviously the left-hand thing is probably a little better thing for him."

After spending nine years with the Cardinals, the 30-year-old is batting .276 with four doubles on nine hits this spring.

Twins pitcher Tommy Milone trying to earn fifth spot
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Tommy Milone, who is competing for the fifth spot in the rotation, gave up three runs on six hits and two walks in five innings during Thursday's spring start against the Red Sox. He struck out three.

"I feel getting ahead was important today," Milone said, per MLB.com. "There were a couple times where I lost command early in at-bats, but I was able to come back and kind of counter and throw some strikes and kind of get back into the count." 

Manager Paul Molitor was short in his response regarding Milone's performance on the mound.

"I thought for the most part he was effective," Molitor said.

Milone has a 4.50 ERA through four spring starts. He has eight strikeouts in 14 innings.
