Mauer continues to battle soreness in his quads, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer missed just one game last week after first experiencing the quad soreness, but manager Paul Molitor said Mauer is still not 100 percent, and that his injury is actually worse than originally thought. Mauer was held out of Thursday's lineup for the second day in a row, and it remains to be seen how much longer he will be sidelined.

Mauer is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Twins manager Paul Molitor is just giving Mauer a day off Sunday, despite the first baseman's hot run at the plate of late. Over his last six games, Mauer has gone 14-for-25 (.560 average) with a homer, five walks, eight runs and nine RBI. He'll give way to Kennys Vargas at first base Sunday, but Mauer looks like a worthy activation heading into the week given how he's performed recently.
