Twinsights: Trevor Plouffe to visit Mayo Clinic for second opinion on fractured forearm

  DETROIT -- Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe will visit the Mayo Clinic in Rochester on Monday for a second opinion on his fractured left forearm. Plouffe was told after an initial exam on Thursday in the Twins Cities that surgery would not be needed. According to Twins general manager Terry Ryan, Plouffe suffered a “clean break” of the ulna.

Forearm fractures tend to be more serious when both bones are compromised. --Twins outfielder Jordan Schafer said his right (non-throwing) elbow still hadn’t improved enough to swing a bat or play the field.

DETROIT -- The Twins have asked third baseman Trevor Plouffe to seek a second opinion on whether surgery will be necessary to repair his fractured left forearm.

Trevor Plouffe broke his arm: recovery and fallout

At this point it's just rubbing salt in very open wounds. In case you missed it, Trevor Plouffe fractured his forearm as he attempted to apply a tag at third base in yesterday's game. The Twins were leading 2-0 in the top of the sixth when the Diamondbacks attempted a double steal with nobody out, and Kurt Suzuki's throw was a hair too late. But in that moment Plouffe caught the ball and brought the glove down, and his arm collided with A.J. Pollack's leg - just above the kneecap. "It was a kind of a weird play," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "They were stealing and he goes to make...

What To Do With Trevor Plouffe

There are people that believe he'll become a super-utility player. But, is there even room for him? After the 2011 season, Trevor Plouffe appeared to be a busted prospect. He didn't show much in the minor leagues and there had to be some concern when he started three consecutive years at Triple-A, but in 2010 he did start showing some signs of hitting for power. The extra-base hits didn't carry over to the majors, and then a new issue developed: It was clear Plouffe could not play shortstop. In 2012, the power did show up, mainly in a one week outburst midseason. Plouffe also was shifted...
