Twins | Trevor Plouffe activated from DL

Mon, 02 May 2016 21:49:13 -0700

The Minnesota Twins activated 3B Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) from the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 2, and optioned INF Jorge Polanco to Class AAA Rochester.

Fantasy Tip: Give Plouffe a game or two to prove his health before trusting him again in seasonal fantasy leagues. The same applies to DFS play.

Minnesota Twins 3B Eduardo Nunez, OF Oswaldo Arcia and C Kurt Suzuki are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21. 3B Jorge Polanco is leading off, OF Eddie Rosario is hitting fifth and C J.R. Murphy hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario has homered in consecutive games and is the only one of the trio worth a low-end start against Taylor Jungmann.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe placed on DL

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 09:09:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right intercostal muscle Tuesday, April 19. SS Jorge Polanco was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: It's unfortunate for Plouffe, as he was heating up with 10 hits in 23 at-bats with a home run in his last six games. For those that need corner infield insurance, he's worth stashing in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Eduardo Nunez, who is hitting .545 (12-for-22) in the early going, figures to see a boost in playing time and can be added for those desperate in deep mixed leagues.

Twins | Jorge Polanco gets rare start at short

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:54:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Jorge Polanco is making a rare start Thursday, July 30, batting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Nothing to see here. Polanco is only up because Trevor Plouffe went on the paternity list, and is getting his first start of the year here. However, he's logged just 10 career at-bats over two years in the big leagues and deserves absolutely zero fantasy consideration.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe on paternity list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:48:48 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe was placed on the paternity list Wednesday, July 29, and SS Jorge Polanco will be called up to join the team in a corresponding move. It's not set in stone that Polanco will return to the minors when Plouffe is back, according to manager Paul Molitor. SS Danny Santana has been struggling and hasn't started since the weekend. Polanco hit .284/.309/.352 with six doubles, six RBI and a stolen base in 22 games for Class AAA Rochester. His defense is a work in progress, as he had 24 errors in 83 minor league games.

Fantasy Tip: Eduardo Nunez started at the hot corner today for the Twins, and Miguel Sano (ankle) is healthy enough to play third base now, too, meaning Polanco is unlikely to have much fantasy value in the short term with Plouffe not expected to miss much time.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe on paternity list

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 22:54:27 -0700

The Minnesota Twins placed 3B Trevor Plouffe on the paternity list Tuesday, July 28, as his wife is expected to give birth to their first child Wednesday, July 29. SS Jorge Polanco was recalled from Class AAA Rochester to take his roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) will be sidelined until at least Friday, so FantasyScore players can avoid him for a few days.

Twins | Jorge Polanco returns to minors

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 22:09:48 -0700

The Minnesota Twins optioned SS Jorge Polanco to Double-A Chattanooga Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco picked up his first career hit Wednesday, but with Eddie Rosario back from paternity leave the prospect was no longer needed.

Twins | Jorge Polanco gets first hit

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 18:16:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Jorge Polanco got his first hit of the season Wednesday, June 10, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco picked up the hit in his first major league plate appearance of the season. Polanco had four home runs and 11 stolen bases in 232 plate appearances at Class AA before being promoted, representing upside in several fantasy categories. Polanco is worth a look in AL-only leagues, while mixed-league owners should keep a close eye on the young shortstop. Polanco will represent excellent value on FantasyScore in his early going.

Twins | Jorge Polanco batting ninth against KC

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 14:47:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Jorge Polanco is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco is expected to be returned to the minors after the game Wednesday, so at this point, there is no reason to roster him in any format. With Class AA Chattanooga, he has a .312/.349/.436 slash line with 32 runs, four home runs, 26 RBI and 11 stolen bases through 232 plate appearances this season.

Twins | Jorge Polanco coming up

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 20:12:55 -0700

The Minnesota Twins will recall SS Jorge Polanco from Double-A Chattanooga from Double-A Chattanooga Wednesday, June 10, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco is a player FantasyScore players will want to remember in the coming days. He hit .315 for the Lookouts and could be a low-priced option with some upside.
