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.

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (head) said that he passed his initial concussion test but was still experiencing concussion-like symptoms prior to his placement on the seven-day disabled list. He said that he feels better today. He'll be re-evaluated on Friday, May 24, when he takes the ImPACT test, which determines whether he has a concussion or just showed the symptoms because of the initial blow to his head.
In corresponding moves, OF Darin Mastroianni (ankle) was transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list and INF/OF Chris Colabello, 29, was recalled from Triple-A Rochester. This is Colabello's first call-up to the majors, and he received his first start on Wednesday, May 22.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Plouffe has a good chance to avoid an extended absence. Jamey Carroll is likely a candidate to play more often. Colabello is unlikely to have fantasy value.
