Latest Update Trevor Plouffe had surgery Monday on his fractured left forearm. Mon Sep, 29, 06:31 PM
Has pretty good home-run power, and can get red-hot with the stick. Also boasts a very strong arm at the hot corner and the versatility to play other positions.
Flaws: : Lacks consistency as a hitter in general, and he can go into prolonged funks (and power droughts). Strikes out a lot and doesn't do much running on the base-paths.
He fractured his forearm during the last week of the season. He finished with decent fantasy season by producing 69 runs, 14 home runs, 80 RBI, and two stolen bases with a slash line of .245/.328/.423.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Plouffe hopes to avoid gettig surgery on his recently fractured forearm, as it will significantly shorten the recovery time. No matter what, he should be back healthy for the spring, though it would be far more ideal to avoid surgery.Analyst: Ben Diamond
The Twins just want to make sure that Plouffe's forearm heals properly, whether it's just by resetting and casting it or by surgery first. Can't hurt to have someone else look at it to confirm, right? It doesn't change the fact that he's useless in fantasy right now.Analyst: Howard Bender
He injured his arm in a collision with A.J. Pollock's knee on Wednesday, and his season is over. If the season wasn't just about over, this would be a big blow for the Twins, as Plouffe has been a nice surprise at third-base for them, hitting .258 while flashing some decent power (14 home runs and 79 RBI's). In his absence, Eduardo Nunez will handle the majority of work at third. Plouffe should be good to go by next season. Analyst: Ben Diamond
