Joe Mauer C/1B/DH MIN 1 Month

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.

Mauer is out of the lineup Thursday against the Royals, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

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.

Mauer drove in three RBI on Friday facing the Tigers, while scoring one run as he went 2-for-4 on the night.

The days of Mauer being an elite player are gone, but he's still a solid hitter that will provide batting average at the corner slot. Mauer is currently hitting .278 on the year and his ability to take a walk keeps his OBP (.355) at a good level. Mauer has knocked in five RBI over his last five games.

Mauer (oblique) will likely come off the disabled list Monday when first eligible, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Mauer went 2-for-4 in a rehab assignment with Low-A Cedar Rapids on Saturday and 6-for-15 in his four games with the team. He appears to be ready to rejoin the roster, and will look to improve on his .271 season average at the big league level.
