Club waiting to determine Plouffe's status
CHICAGO -- Trevor Plouffe's bruised right thumb is still keeping him out of the lineup. Manager Ron Gardenhire said he'll wait another couple days before determining if a roster move has to be made.

"We have to get him out and let him take some swings, but he's not ready to do that yet," Gardenhire said. "The area's good, a lot better, smaller area. We just go day by day, he's taking medication for it now, they changed that to stronger stuff, and we'll see what happens."

Gardenhire said after talking to team doctors that it's possible Plouffe may be ready to return Friday. The Twins have an off-day Thursday.
