|Trevor Plouffe not in Friday lineup for Twins |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/25/14) Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe is catching a break Friday against the visiting White Sox. Eduardo Nunez is set to man the position instead.
Plouffe has been steady but far from spectacular lately. He has one hit in six of his last seven games and owns a .243/.314/.409 stat line on the year.
|Trevor Plouffe hits homer No. 7 in loss |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/19/14) Twins infielder Trevor Plouffe was the team's only batter to make an impact Friday, in a 6-2 loss to the Rays.
Plouffe had just one hit in the game, as he slugged a third-inning two-run home run post the team's first and only runs on the board. He finished the game 1 for 4 overall with a run scored and a strikeout.
Plouffe has seven home runs and 44 RBI on the season, while hitting .245/.317/.417 in 78 games.
|Trevor Plouffe posts another three-hit game Sunday |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/14/14) Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe posted his second three-hit game since returning from the disabled list, in a 13-5 win over the Rockies in Colorado on Sunday.
Plouffe doubled in the opening frame, tripled in the fifth and recorded a single in the seventh inning. He fell a home run shy of a cycle and finished 3 for 5 with three runs scored. He owns a .245/.317/.409 slash line with six homers and 42 RBI in 298 at-bats.
|Trevor Plouffe explodes for three hits in loss to Yankees |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/7/14) Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe enjoyed his first big game Sunday since coming off the disabled list on June 30.
His first multi-hit game since June 8 was not enough to give his team a comeback victory over the Yankees, but it did sweeten his stat line to .245/.319/.410. Plouffe came within a triple of a cycle with a two-run homer in the eighth, as well as RBI double and single.
|Trevor Plouffe, Eduardo Nunez activated from DL |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/30/14) As expected, Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe (oblique) and infielder Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) were activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday.
|Trevor Plouffe made a minor splash in 2012 when he took over as the Twins' primary third baseman and connected for 24 home runs. His follow-up campaign showed some early promise but ultimately was a disappointment. Despite missing time with a concussion and a calf injury, Plouffe produced 10 home runs in the first half along with a .265 batting average that was 30 points higher than his 2012 mark. After the All-Star break, Plouffe's power went poof, as his ground ball and strikeout rates took off, and the result was a .243/.295/.339 second-half slash line. Even if Plouffe can restore his power in 2014, his track record suggests that his 2012 home run surge was an outlier, and he has yet to be much of a contributor in the batting average, runs, RBI and stolen base categories. Even optimists can feel free to pursue Plouffe only in AL-only leagues.
