Mauer is out of the lineup Wednesday against Reds.

Mauer has caught a bit of a hot streak at the plate recently, collecting a hit in his last five games and in nine of his last 10 games to raise his average from .254 to .263 on the season. He'll receive a day off Wednesday, however, with Kennys Vargas receiving the start and batting fifth in his place.

Mauer went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 2-1 win over the Cardinals on Thursday.

The long ball was just Mauer's third of the year, and the RBI that went with it was just his second in the last 11 games.

Mauer went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in Friday's loss to Milwaukee.

It was just Mauer's second home run of the season. Mauer has just a .700 OPS and a .327 OBP. Both marks would be the lowest for any season in his career, so hopefully this performance helps turn his season around.
