Profile: Oblique injuries are never good for a hitter, and thus it's no surprise that two of them waylaid any possible progress for Plouffe in a pivotal year. He hit just .260/.303/.420 while getting into only 84 games as the injuries made both his offense and defense suffer. As a result, the Twins opted to release him after the season rather than pay him in his final year of arbitration/team control. Oakland is getting a player motivated for his first big payday, and if he's healthy, he should provide value both defensively at third and first base — less so if he's used in the outfield — and at the plate, at least against lefties. He's hit lefties at a .268/.344/.465 clip in his big-league career. He'll be more of a mix-and-match type in fantasy leagues no matter his role. (@Brandon_Warne)

The Quick Opinion: Plouffe is a better fit in Scoresheet and deeper leagues. He's the front-runner for the starting third base job in Oakland, but health will play a large role in how long he retains that spot.
