Chris Herrmann won the Twins’ backup catcher job out of spring training largely because of his versatility – he can also play both corner outfield positions and even first base. Which makes sense, because Herrmann has never limited himself to being good at just one thing. Not only is he an accomplished athlete, he’s also an accomplished artist.
Joe Mauer hit a two-run triple with two outs in the 11th inning, lifting the Minnesota Twins over the Seattle Mariners 4-2 on Sunday. Mauer got three hits and drove in three runs. In addition to his first triple of the season, he had an RBI double as the Twins won for the third time in four games.
Trevor Plouffe led off the 11th inning with a soaring home run to lift the Minnesota Twins to a 3-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.

The Minnesota Twins have reinstated third baseman Trevor Plouffe from the disabled list. The move was made after Friday night’s 4-0 loss to Detroit. Plouffe has missed the last 22 games, first because of a concussion and then due to a strained left calf muscle. He played four games for Triple-A Rochester on a rehabilitation assignment this week, hitting .333 with one home run and three RBIs in 15 at-bats.
