What will Trevor Plouffe do with a full-time job?

For those in deep mixed and AL-only leagues who have the right-handed breakout masher on their radars, they should be aware that the ice under his feet is pretty thin. Plouffe's track record includes second-rate control of the strike zone and plate discipline; they don't foretell batting titles in his future. Mix that with his sub-par defense, and his playing time would seem to be far from secure.

Not in the Twin Cities, however. Unless esteemed prospect Miguel Sano beats his timeline by a couple of years or so, investors should probably feel pretty comfortable in taking a stab with Plouffe in mixed leagues, or going an extra buck on him in AL formats. Despite the 26-year-old's drawbacks, he's made great strides in those areas, and his average on balls in play from last year certainly has room to make a sizable climb.

Where will Minnesota get its best starting pitching?
