Twins | Byung Ho Park resting vs. Blue Jays

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:20:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins DH Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. 3B Jorge Polanco is drawing into the starting lineup at second base and is batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Park's .233 batting average is a drag, but if you knew he would have nine home runs by May 20 at the draft table, you would have gladly taken it. He should take a run at 30 bombs for the campaign, and there is room for the average to improve. Polanco has 48 career plate appearances and is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats Friday.

Twins | Eduardo Nunez takes a seat

Tue, 17 May 2016 12:16:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 17. 3B Jorge Polanco is starting at the 6 and is hitting second against Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco has a combined 42 plate appearances in the big leagues to date and has one home run and eight RBI to speak for it. He's a true deep sleeper as a desperation play to save salary cap space in daily games despite the cushy lineup spot.

Twins | Several MIN regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:18:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier, 3B Trevor Plouffe and C Kurt Suzuki are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Sunday, May 15. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will play the hot corner and bat third, INF Jorge Polanco will bat sixth and play second base and C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, OF Oswaldo Arcia will bat fifth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Sano is making his fifth start at third base this season but he has struggled over the last two weeks, batting just .179 with two home runs and four RBI in 39 at-bats. Centeno is making his second consecutive start and is worth considering as a value play in DFS after going 5-for-11 with a home run through his first four games this season. Polanco should be viewed exclusively as a source of desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Twins | Brian Dozier remains sidelined

Sun, 08 May 2016 10:20:13 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, May 8. 2B Jorge Polanco will start at second base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco has gone 2-for-10 with two RBI in his limited playing time this season but probably is not the best player for owners to use in their lineups.

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.

Twins | Three Twins sitting Thursday

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 08:40:43 -0700

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.
