Minnesota Twins SS Pedro Florimon (appendix) is scheduled to play in a minor league game Friday, March 14, and he's been taking batting practice and fielding groundballs for the last week. He faced live pitching Thursday, March 13. However, Florimon may not be ready for opening day. INFs Eduardo Escobar, Jason Bartlett and Danny Santana are candidates to take Florimon's place.
Fantasy Tip: If the Twins are playing it cautious, they'll probably sit Florimon out to start the year. His replacement won't be worth a roster spot on your team, and Florimon should only be looked at in AL leagues.

The Minnesota Twins will place 3B Trevor Plouffe (calf) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, May 30, with a calf strain.
Fantasy Tip: This is really bad timing for Plouffe, as he was just activated from the seven-day DL for concussions. Chris Colabello is expected to be recalled as a result. Eduardo Escobar is expected to continue seeing starts at the hot corner, but he and Colabello are strictly AL-only commodities while Plouffe is out.

The Minnesota Twins are trying to find some playing time for INF Eduardo Escobar, who is hitting .483 (14-for-29) in limited duty so far. "He's swinging it really good. You never know how long you're going to stay on that surfboard before someone knocks you off. So you just ride it and go from there," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said.
