Latest Update Trevor Plouffe went 2-for-4 and launched his 14th home run of the season in a win against the White Sox on Sunday. Sun Sep, 14, 06:16 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 has homered in back-to-back games and is 4-for-11 in the last two games. Plouffe has been pretty hot as of late and is a good play right now in your lineup. Just beware a cold spell could be looming in the near future but he is enjoying the hot streak right now.Analyst: Colby Conway
Plouffe has been a major force in the Twins offense for the month of August. The home run and two hits today gives him five hits, including two bombs in their last three games. While Plouffe is swinging a hot bat, play him with confidence.Analyst: Colby Conway
Plouffe is now 7-for-21 with five extra-base hits, three RBI and three runs scored over his last six games as he continues to have himself a solid run in August (.302 BA this month). He is slashing .249/316/.420 which isn't going to turn any heads, but his 11 home runs and 66 RBI makes him worthy of an add in deep league formats until he cools off. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Plouffe is always one of those unheralded cheap sources of power that most tend to dismiss because of his batting average. But if it's counting stats you crave, then he can be a nice sneaky play for you either at third or the corner infield. He's hit safely in four of his last five games and in that span has managed two home runs with eight RBI and five runs scored. Granted, games like this when the Twins post 20 runs don't happen very often -- almost never, in fact, -- but Plouffe can still go on a nice hot streak for himself and boost your totals when you need him.Analyst: Howard Bender
