Trevor Plouffe has developed into a solid major league third baseman. Trevor was drafted in 2004 after an All-American high school career, chosen in the first round (20th overall) by the Twins as a shortstop.

But he would bounce around, playing every position — from short to third, second, first, and even a stint in the outfield.
