(5/23/13) Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe, who is on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion, felt "a lot better" Thursday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
"No headaches or anything," Plouffe told the Pioneer Press. "I pretty much feel normal. As far as any timelines, it's still one step at a time."
Plouffe was scheduled to undergo a full-impact test Thursday to determine whether his injury was a concussion.
|Twins want to give Trevor Plouffe a 'bit of a break'|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe was placed on the 7-day disabled list Wednesday, despite saying he was "feeling better" a day after getting kneed in the head as he attempted to break up a double play. Plouffe showed sensitivity to light during an exam for concussion-related symptoms.
Plouffe is expected to get a few days off before taking a concussion test.
"He took a good shot in the head. That's what this rule is for, to protect the player," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Give him a little bit of a break here and do what's right. He was a little woozy and that's why there was concern."
|Trevor Plouffe lands on 7-day DL|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) The Twins placed starting third baseman Trevor Plouffe on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion Wednesday. Plouffe was injured in Tuesday's game against the Braves after taking a knee to the head.
Eduardo Escobar replaced Plouffe in Tuesday's game. Although no official announcement has been made, Escobar and Jamey Carroll will likely share time at third base in Plouffe's absence.
It's an unfortunate turn of events for Plouffe, who was getting on track offensively in May. He's batting .292 with a .477 slugging percentage, two home runs, six doubles and 13 RBI in 17 May games.
|Trevor Plouffe leaves game after taking knee to head|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe was forced out of Tuesday's game against the Braves after taking a knee to the head while sliding into second base to break up a double play in the 10th inning.
Plouffe went 1 for 4 with an RBI single in the eighth and was replaced by Eduardo Escobar. Plouffe likely will be further evaluated in the near future.
|Trevor Plouffe. His name spawned quite a few puns during his torrid June, when he hit 11 home runs. He was on fire. He was in the pudding. He was the magic dragon. He was ... something that couldn't be handled by Tom Cruise while questioning Jack Nicholson on the courtroom floor. He was Plouffe, and he was mighty ... for that one little month, anyway. Unfortunately, about three months came after that, and those three months turned him back into waiver fodder. They didn't lose him his starting job at third base, which means he'll have a chance to taunt Fantasy owners with his streaky power again. Of course, now that he's no longer eligible at shortstop, fewer will be tempted to add him. He can hit home runs -- his minor-league track record tells us that much -- but apparently they'll come in fits and spurts. And with a poor walk rate, he won't have much to offer in between. Plouffe is sort of like J.J. Hardy, only he plays a deeper position, so unless you're one of the last two or three people to fill your third base spot in an AL-only league, you should probably just avoid him in Fantasy. Hey, the Plouffe hurts. (Updated 12/7/12)|
