Mauer was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with a cervical strain and concussion-like symptoms.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer passed concussion tests, but he had balance issues and sensitivity to light, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. The fact that he doesn't have a concussion increases the likelihood that this trip to the DL will be a short one, but it's difficult to say for certain with head injuries. Jake Cave was called up to take his place on the roster, making his major-league debut.

Mauer is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

After starting the first three games of the series and going 2-for-6 with an RBI in the Twins' 12-inning win Saturday, Mauer will get a well-deserved rest in the finale Sunday afternoon. Mauer's move to the bench will open up a lineup spot for Mitch Garver, who will serve as the Twins' designated hitter.

Mauer is not in the lineup Tuesday in St. Louis, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Twins playing in a National League park, regular designated hitter Logan Morrison will get a start at first base, giving Mauer a rare day off. The veteran is hitting .280/.425/.374 in 30 games. His 20 percent walk rate ranks second among qualified hitters, while his 11.9 percent strikeout rate is 12th-lowest.

Mauer will play first base and hit atop the Twins' order versus the White Sox on Friday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Brain Dozier struggling, manager Paul Molitor has elected to give Mauer a chance at the top spot for Friday's series opener. It remains to be seen whether this could be a legitimate option moving forward, or just a remedy to try and help Dozier out of his funk. Over 26 games this season, Mauer is hitting .293/.435/.391 with eight RBI.

Mauer is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer is hitting .298 on the season, but he has just one hit in his past four starts. As a result, he'll head to the bench for a night off with lefty CC Sabathia taking the hill for New York. Logan Morrison will move to first base to fill the void, while Ehire Adrianza takes his spot in the lineup for the evening.

Mauer went 2-for-3 with a run scored, two RBI and two walks Tuesday against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer has gotten on base at a great clip to start the season as his on-base percentage now sits at an excellent .543. Unsurprisingly, he has shown next to no power with four doubles being his only extra-base hits of the season. That profile has been Mauer's blueprint for several seasons and there's no reason to expect that to change.
