Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe goes on DL with injured muscle in his left side

Share/Save/Bookmark

DETROIT — The Minnesota Twins placed Trevor Plouffe on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a strained left oblique muscle and recalled Pedro Florimon from Triple-A Rochester.

Plouffe sustained the injury in Saturday's 12-9 loss to the Tigers while diving for Ian Kinsler's infield single. Plouffe stayed in the game after a lengthy delay, but dropped to his knees in pain after throwing out Torii Hunter one batter later.

Plouffe is hitting .241 with five homers as Minnesota's everyday third baseman, while Florimon was sent down after hitting .108 in his first 25 games of the year. Things didn't get much better in Rochester, where he hit .230 and made 11 errors at shortstop in 33 games.
