Trevor Plouffe went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and one run scored in the Twins 3-2 loss to the Rangers on Friday.
Plouffe had just two hits in his past 14 at-bats entering tonight, but he quickly broke out of that mini slump on Friday night. He provided the Twins entire offense on Friday night with a two run shot in the seventh inning. It was only his seventh home run of the season. Like the Twins as a whole, Plouffe has been disappointing this season, though he did manage to record 14 of his 22 RBI in June. He will look to keep that up throughout July, and tomorrow he and the Twins will take on right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez, though Plouffe has just a .661 OPS against righties this season.
The Jazz have signed free-agent forward Joe Johnson to a two-year deal worth $22 million.
Johnson played 57 games for the Nets last season, averaging 11.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.5 three-pointers per game. He was eventually bought out and signed with the Heat for the final 24 games where he stepped up his play and averaged 13.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists while shooting 52 percent from the floor and 42 percent from three-point range. With the Jazz he will not be expected to carry their offense which will allow him to feed off of Gordon Hayward and be more of a spot up shooter and move off the ball which should benefit him.
Adam Duvall went 2 for 6 with a run scored and an RBI in the Reds’ 3-2 loss to the Nationals on Friday.
Duvall continues to be a nice surprise for owners who were able to scoop him off waivers, or had the foresight to draft him. On the season, Duvall is posting a .252/.288/.566 on the season with 22 home runs and 56 RBI on the season, and on his current pace, he projects for 44 home runs, and 112 RBI. The Reds will face Nats starter Joe Ross on Saturday, and Duvall has 19 of his 22 home runs against righties on the season.
