Minnesota Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe will likely return from the paternity list Saturday, according to MLB.com. Miguel Sano has started the last two games at third base in Plouffe's absence.

Plouffe went 3-for-4 Saturday with two runs scored and his second stolen base of the season.

Even with Miguel Sano on the big league roster, Plouffe's defense is keeping him entrenched at third base. He's still looking for his first home run since June 26, however.

Plouffe went 2-for-4 with two doubles and four RBI in a 7-2 win over the Cubs on Friday.

Plouffe's been an underrated asset at third base, providing a fantasy-relevant nine homers and 38 RBI so far this year, though his batting average is still reliably mediocre. However, he's hit safely in five straight and has racked up six doubles in his last seven games.

Plouffe is out of the lineup Sunday against the Brewers, Tyler Mason of FOX Sports North reports.

It's likely only an off day for Plouffe, who had been in the lineup for every game since May 10. The third baseman is in the midst of a 1-for-20 skid at the plate, which had dropped his batting average 29 points over the last week. He's in no danger of losing out on his regular role, though he'll give way to Eduardo Nunez on Sunday as manager Paul Molitor looks to give Plouffe a mental break.

Plouffe went 2-for-4 with his eighth home run in Sunday's win over Toronto.

Plouffe has been hot the past week as he's hitting .379 (11-for-29) with two home runs and seven RBI in his last seven games.

Plouffe went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Monday's win over Boston.

Plouffe hit home run number seven to lead his team to a win at home on Memorial Day. He's now got 25 RBI on the season to go along with a .270 average. He should have plenty of opportunity to driver in runs moving forward as he's been batting cleanup in the Twins lineup.

Plouffe (personal) is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports.

After missing the past two games, Plouffe will return to the lineup as the starting third baseman and cleanup hitter. He would have returned for Sunday's game against the Indians, if not for his flight out of Dallas getting delayed.

Plouffe (personal) will not start at third base Sunday against the Indians, Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Though he was initially expected to slot back into the cleanup spot for the Twins in Sunday's series finale, Plouffe's delayed flight from Dallas will prevent him from arriving at Progressive Field before the 1:10 ET start time. Doug Bernier gets the nod at third base as a result, but don't be surprised if Plouffe replaces him at the hot corner as soon as he gets to the ballpark.

Updating a previous report, Plouffe (personal) is uncertain to arrive at Progressive Field in time for Sunday's game against the Indians, Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The Twins released a lineup Sunday morning that included Plouffe with the expectation that he'd rejoin the team after attending to a personal matter Saturday. However, it appears his flight from Dallas has been delayed, as he's not scheduled to land in Cleveland until a half hour before Sunday's 1:10 ET start time. If Plouffe is unable to make it to the stadium in time, Doug Bernier would likely receive the start at third base.
