Analysis: Plouffe was hurt in the sixth inning Wednesday against Arizona, when A.J. Pollock stole third base for the Diamondbacks. Plouffe's forearm banged against Pollock's knee during the attempted tag, and Plouffe instantly yelled in pain. After a brief visit with manager Ron Gardenhire and a team athletic trainer, he walked off the field holding the arm still. Eduardo Nunez replaced Plouffe, who batted a career-high .258 with a team-high 40 doubles, 14 home runs and 14 errors.
