    Trevor Plouffe to the DL

    As somewhat expected, Plouffe goes to th 15-day disabled list, opening the way for Pedro Florimon to be activated for today's game against Detroit.

    The #MNTwins will place Trevor Plouffe on the disabled list & recall Pedro Florimon prior to today's game in Detroit.

    Just saw this too but missed your thread so I posted the tweet in the other thread.

    11 errors/33 games. Let's hope it was just a temper tantrum at being sent down to ROC.

    A lot may be riding on the hammy of Eduardo Nunez.

    And even more riding on Dozier's back...

    The Twins are "dinged" with the loss of Plouffe (I'm guessing he's out until the All-Star game). They are "banged up" if Nuñez is out more than a day or two. They are "crippled" if Dozier can't play as soon as Monday. Let's see what the lineup looks like today.

    Update and background on the situation from Phil Miller's blog:

    Trevor Plouffe has been sent home to Minneapolis, suffering from the flu. He's also been placed on the disabled list with inflammation between the ninth rib and costal cartilage on his left side, an injury that was aggravated by diving for a ground ball on Saturday.
    And this not-too-encouraging bit of news on "Pedro's Progress":

    Plouffe, the Twins' RBI leader this season with 38, has been replaced, at least temporarily, by shortstop Pedro Florimon, giving the Twins enough infielders to get through today's series finale at Comerica Park.

    Florimon, optioned to Class AAA Rochester on May 8, was batting .230 with the Red Wings, and had committed 11 errors at shortstop. He has one hit in his last 25 major-league at-bats.

    Is this where we would have witnessed Sano's big league debut?

    Phil Miller is a busy bee on this Sunday morning....nursing the irony of the crippled Twins lineup on Twitter:

    Phil Miller @MillerStrib · 15s

    Twins' top 3 RBI leaders: Plouffe (38) on disabled list, Dozier (35) nursing a sore back, Colabello (30) in Triple-A.

    Well, Dozier is in the starting line-up today batting 3rd behind Santana and Mauer.

    Let's hope he can stay in the line-up and on the field.

    Playing 2nd and batting 3rd? Gardy does the impossible.

    I found it to be more of a humorous jab than a criticism. Why so serious?
