Game 855 | January 29, 2016 | Trevor Plouffe, John Ryan Murphy, Cory Provus
Optimism was high heading into TwinsFest weekend. Unfortunately, things quickly went south for the 2016 Twins. Plouffe, the incumbent third baseman, spent most of the season on the disabled list and was released at the end of the year. Murphy, obtained in the trade with the New York Yankees for outfielder Aaron Hicks, failed to hit as the backup catcher and spent most of the season at Triple AAA Rochester.
