Minnesota Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe fractured his left forearm during Wednesday's game versus the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Plouffe left the game in the top of the sixth inning after hitting his left arm on Diamondbacks centerfielder A.J. Pollock's knee. Pollock was sliding into third on a stolen base attempt.
Plouffe will miss the Twins five remaining games this season. The 28-year-old hit .258 with 14 home runs and 79 RBI and a .326 OBP.
Entering Wednesday, Minnesota was 67-90 and in last place in the AL Central.
