Trevor Plouffe returns from concussion disabled list

1 Comment

Trevor Plouffe was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list after taking a knee to the head on the bases last Tuesday, but he passed an imPACT concussion test and is back on the Twins’ active roster.

To make room for Plouffe’s return the Twins demoted Chris Colabello to Triple-A, so the former independent leaguer’s first taste of the majors lasted just five games. He did collect a hit, but went 1-for-11 with six strikeouts and wore the wrong uniform last night.

Plouffe will resume starting at third base for the Twins after hitting .254 with four homers and a .759 OPS in 37 games to essentially match last year’s production.
