Twins’ Plouffe not scared

SundayXtra - - SPORTS -

MIN­NEAPO­LIS — When Trevor Plouffe signed a $4.8 mil­lion, one-year deal, he be­came the high­est-paid third base­man in Min­nesota Twins his­tory.

The ques­tion is, how long will he hold that po­si­tion?

Plouffe is com­ing off of a solid sea­son in which he hit 14 home runs and led the team with 80 RBI. But star prospect Miguel Sano is healthy and itch­ing for a crack at the big leagues.

Plouffe says he’s not wor­ried at all about the young power hit­ter on his heels. He has worked hard to im­prove his de­fence over the last two years and wel­comes the change to man­ager Paul Moli­tor.
