Trevor Plouffe was activated from the seven-day concussion disabled list yesterday after passing various medical tests, but in warming up for last night’s game the Twins third baseman tweaked his calf.

He was scratched from the lineup and now he’s headed back to the DL, with the Twins recalling the recently demoted Chris Colabello to replace him on the roster.

Being activated from the DL and then being placed back on the DL without even appearing in a game is quite a feat for Plouffe and the separate injuries mean the stint can’t be backdated. In other words, he’ll miss at least 15 days.

    Hey, at least the Twins put him on the DL! If this was last year, he’d be on the active roster with a day-to-day injury for over a week. Then he’d be put on the DL.

      That is the stone cold truth! I think they have some new blood in the training staff~folks who are able to make a decision.
