Joe Mauer C/1B/DH MIN 24 Mins

Mauer was hit with a pitch on the nerve right above his right elbow and had to leave Tuesday's game due to swelling, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports. He is expected to miss Wednesday's game.

Look for Chris Parmelee to start at first base Wednesday, and consider Mauer day-to-day for now, with the hope that his swelling subsides and he can start a few more games this season.

Mauer left Tuesday's game after getting hit on the elbow and is day-to-day, Fox Sports North's Tyler Mason reports.

He stayed in the game initially after suffering the elbow contusion on the hit-by-pitch in the first inning, but the Twins wisely opted to play it safe and remove him in the second inning. Chris Parmelee replaced Mauer and would figure to get any starts at first base if Mauer misses any further time.

Mauer is not in the lineup Monday, Fox Sports North's Tyler Mason reports.

Chris Parmelee will get the start at first base as the Twins will give Mauer a rare day off. He's 10-for-27 over his last seven games and is finishing off the season strong. Mauer is still getting on base at a solid clip (.361), but his four home runs in 115 games have really limited his value this season.

Mauer is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Mauer will turn first base over to Kennys Vargas after going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the first game of the twin bill. A sore left shoulder limited Mauer to DH duty for a few games at the end of August, but it hasn't seemed to present any issues so far in September, as he's recorded nine hits in 31 at-bats.

Mauer has been limited to DH duties the last four days due to a sore left shoulder, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

If the injury is inhibiting Mauer offensively, it didn't show Monday, as he turned in a three-hit, four-RBI performance in the win over the Orioles. The Twins will likely keep using him at DH until he's deemed healthy enough to return to first base, but the ailment shouldn't have a noticeable impact on his fantasy utility at this time.

This looks like nothing more than a routine day off for Mauer, who has started 16 straight games since coming off the DL earlier this month. Chris Parmelee will man first base in his absence, with Kurt Suzuki moving up to the No. 3 spot in the batting order. Mauer is batting .288/.391/.475 with two homers since his return.
