Minnesota Twins Spring Training: Trevor Plouffe Comfortable In Outfield

After making 11 errors in 45 games at shortstop last season, Trevor Plouffe will move to the Minnesota Twins outfield this season.

Plouffe played 14 games in the outfield and at first base down the stretch of last season and, with the offseason acquistion of shortstop Jamey Carroll, Plouffe is expected to see most of his time in the outfield. Via 1500 ESPN Twin Cities:

"I feel like I'm OK with it," Plouffe said about the position change. "I want to help the team. If being in the outfield or moving around is best for the team, that's what I'm all about. Ultimately we want wins. We don't want to experience anything like last year ever again. That's what it's about here."

Asked if he feels like he has unfinished business at shortstop, Plouffe said he feels "kind of at home now in the outfield, moving around."

Plouffe was called up from Triple-A permanently last season after catching fire at the plate. Last season with the Twins, hit .238/.305/.392 with eight home runs in 320 plate appearances.
