Latest Update Twins have yet to discuss a multiyear contract with Trevor Plouffe Sat Dec, 06, 05:59 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.
Plouffe is eligible for arbitration, and that is likely how he will be paid this off season. It's doubtful that the Twins will discuss a multi-year contract with him just yet, especially due to the fact that he suffered a broken forearm at the end of the year. Analyst: Ben Diamond
The Twins tendered all of their arbitration eligible players and signed Torii Hunter to a one-year, $10.5 Million deal all on the same day. None of the above players are expected to get expensive in arbitration. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Plouffe is expected to be ready for spring training, He has good power but has both a low walk and contact rate, that hurts his batting average and drops his fantasy value.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
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
