Twins | Trevor Plouffe makes appearance

Mon, 30 May 2016 22:54:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (knee) worked out before the game Monday, May 30, against the Oakland Athletics. He then came in as a pinch runner in the seventh inning.

Fantasy Tip: The fact Plouffe was used as a runner is a good sign his knee is sound. Wait to see him make it through a full game before trusting him in your active fantasy lineup and in DFS play.

Twins | Phil Hughes headed for bullpen

Mon, 30 May 2016 22:53:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes will head to the bullpen when SP Kyle Gibson (shoulder) returns from the bullpen Thursday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes has been atrocious this season, and he isn't worth hanging onto in most fantasy formats at this point. DFS players need not bother with him anymore, either.

Twins | Byron Buxton called back up

Mon, 30 May 2016 16:44:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton has been recalled from Class AAA Monday, May 30. He will rejoin the team Tuesday, May 31, in Oakland.

Fantasy Tip: Danny Santana (hamstring) had to be placed on the disabled list after leaving Monday's game, so the mega prospect will get his second shot this year with the big league club. Although Buxton disappointed mightily the first time around with a poor .156/.208/.289 line, his potential is too monumental to ignore. Owners should be running to the waiver wire for his services in just about all formats.

Twins | Danny Santana goes on DL

Mon, 30 May 2016 16:35:34 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list Monday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Santana injured his left hamstring and had to leave Monday's contest, hence why he's going to the disabled list. In his place, the team is expected to bring back up Byron Buxton, who may have disappointed in his first stint with the team this year but is absolutely worth stashing in most leagues for his significant potential.

Twins | Byron Buxton being promoted?

Mon, 30 May 2016 15:45:56 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton left his game with Class AAA Rochester Monday, May 30, and is going to be recalled, in the opinion of the Minneapolis Star Tribune's La Velle E. Neal III.

Fantasy Tip: Buxton flamed out with Minnesota earlier this season, but he posted a .333/.402/.605 slash line entering Monday with Rochester. He is an immediate grab in all fantasy formats because of his upside, but don't be surprised if there are some peaks and valleys again in the majors.

Twins | Byung Ho Park not in the lineup

Mon, 30 May 2016 10:56:27 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Monday, May 30. OF Miguel Sano will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Oswaldo Arcia will start in right field and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia has not received a lot of playing time over the last few weeks but does have three hits in his last two games. Owners in most leagues likely will be able to find better players to use in their lineups and can avoid Arcia.

Twins | Two injured Twins still sidelined

Mon, 30 May 2016 10:46:54 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (knee) and C Kurt Suzuki (head) are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Monday, May 30. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base and is batting first, while C Juan Centeno will start at catcher and is batting eighth. Manager Paul Molitor said Plouffe and Suzuki should be able to play Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez has been very productive at the plate recently and has a .414 batting average with two home runs and three RBI over the last seven days. He should be a starting candidate in all daily fantasy leagues. Centeno has only one hit in his last 10 at-bats and can be avoided in all leagues.

Twins | Glen Perkins back on track

Mon, 30 May 2016 03:10:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins (shoulder) has resumed a throwing program following a setback earlier in his rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Kevin Jepsen continues to struggle filling in as the closer, so it makes sense to stash Perkins despite an unclear return date.

Twins | Joe Mauer finding power stroke

Sun, 29 May 2016 17:35:52 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 29, and he has homered in three straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer has six homers on the year, and four have come in the last six games. The power surge is unlikely to continue, but a solid average should keep him owned in AL-only leagues and deeper formats.

Twins | Miguel Sano goes deep again

Sun, 29 May 2016 17:31:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Miguel Sano homered for the third straight game, finishing 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Sano continues to strike out at an alarming rate, but his power potential offsets his terrible average. Keep starting him in season-long leagues and consider using him in daily formats during his current power surge.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki will not start

Sun, 29 May 2016 11:19:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki (head) is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Sunday, May 29. C Juan Centeno will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup. Suzuki said he is feeling better but remains out.

Fantasy Tip: Centeno has gone hitless in each of his last four games and should be avoided in all leagues for now.

Twins | Miguel Sano drives in three runs

Sun, 29 May 2016 06:08:38 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Miguel Sano went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and three RBI during the Twins' 6-5 win over the Seattle Mariners Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Sano has powered up in May with seven home runs and 15 RBI. He remains a solid fantasy option because of his immense power potential and should be started with confidence in all setups. Just remember, Sano is going to be an anchor for your batting average and currently sits with a .234 mark.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki day-to-day

Sun, 29 May 2016 06:02:09 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki (head) left the game in the third inning Saturday, May 28, because of concussion-like symptoms. The team said Suzuki passed the concussion protocol and is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki is a non-factor outside of cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues, and he is even a poor option in those formats given his .200/.257/.284 slash line this season. Juan Centeno projects to handle backstop duty in the meantime, but he is nothing more than a desperation own and start in all fantasy formats.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe has a bone bruise

Sun, 29 May 2016 05:53:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe's (knee) MRI exam on his right knee revealed a bone bruise but no ligament damage, and he is hopeful to play against the Oakland Athletics Monday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe is a low-end option at the hot corner in deeper formats, but he's been limited to just 31 games this season because of injuries and owns an underwhelming .248/.270/.376 slash line. Stay tuned for updates, but in the majority of mixed leagues, Plouffe doesn't move the needle enough to be rostered.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:58:37 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (knee) is out Saturday, May 28, due to a knee sprain. 3B Eduardo Nunez is in Plouffe's place and will hit leadoff against Seattle Mariners SP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe still hasn't gotten the full diagnosis on what's up with the knee, with the exception of missing games. Stay tuned for more details and bench Plouffe accordingly. Nunez is worth activating in DFS leagues Saturday night, as he has four homers in May and a nice .310 average against AL pitching.
