Plouffe was hit in the left arm in the fourth inning. He stayed in the game and hit a bases-loaded, two-RBI single in the fifth, but then was later replaced.
"Yeah, it caught me right above the bone, which I guess is pretty fortunate. But it was pretty solid," Plouffe said.
Plouffe is listed as "day-to-day" but said he hopes to be available for Sunday's series finale.
"I mean I want to be in there, absolutely," Plouffe said. "We'll see how it goes overnight. I've got some stuff to try to move it around. I think I'll be OK."
Plouffe felt pain in a pair of check swings, but said he was OK once he got his arms extended, and in part because of the adrenaline. When he was in the field it "started to stiffen up."
"It was really tough for me to bend it. At that point, I think Gardy saw that and got Esc-y over there and I think that was a good move," Plouffe said.
