Trevor Plouffe 3B/DH MIN 12 Days

Plouffe is out of the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

Plouffe owns a relatively mediocre 2-for-11 career line against opposing starter John Danks, which may have factored into manager Ron Gardenhire's decision to rest him. Eduardo Nunez is set to occupy third base in Plouffe's stead.

Plouffe was 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Twins' loss to Baltimore on Friday night.

There wasn't much for the Twins to cheer about in this one, but Plouffe did pop his 11th home run while continuing his hot hitting for the month of August. He's now batting .249 with 65 RBI and could provide fantasy owners with a little production down the stretch.

Plouffe (.245/.312/.407) hit his tenth homer of the year on Friday against the Tigers, as he went 3-for-6 with four runs scored and three RBI.

Poor Andrew Romine just tried to do his part, taking one for the team on a night where Tigers pitching gave up 20 runs. Fortunately for Plouffe, he was able to pad his stats on the night with a 422-foot blast off Romine, normally an infielder. Plouffe is currently on pace for career bests in at-bats, runs and RBI.

Plouffe (foot) is back in the lineup Monday in Houston, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Plouffe was raking in August (.394/.487/.545 with one homer, nine RBI, and six runs in 33 at-bats) prior to fouling a pitch off his left foot Saturday, resulting in an absence Sunday. X-rays were returned negative, though, and he'll assume his regular role at third base and bat seventh in the order.

Plouffe's X-ray came back negative Sunday, leaving him day-to-day, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

Plouffe was out of the lineup Sunday for the first time since July 25, which was the first indication he was injured. The foot issue likely won't force him on the disabled list however, which is good news for the Twins. He is currently listed as day-to-day, but it's unclear how long he will need to sit before returning to the lineup.

Plouffe will get an x-ray on his left foot Sunday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Plouffe apparently fouled a ball off his in Saturday's game and is the likely reason he is out of the lineup Sunday for the first time since July 25. The team will likely release the results of the x-ray some time Sunday or Monday.

Plouffe hasn't really been any good since April. The Twins aren't going to replace him during the season, but he'll be a candidate to be non-tendered this winter if he doesn't step it up.
