Mauer went 3-for-3 with a double and two walks Thursday in Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer failed to record a run or RBI despite getting on base five times, as Minnesota's offense was quiet until a three-run outburst in the ninth inning propelled the team to a 4-2 win. The 34-year-old veteran is having a renaissance season at the plate, as his .306/.389/.421 line is easily Mauer's best across the board since 2013.

Mauer is not in the lineup against the Rays on Wednesday, LaVelle E. Neal of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With manager Paul Molitor removing all left-handed hitters from the lineup against righty Blake Snell, Mauer will retreat to the bench for the first time since Aug. 24. Since that date, the 34-year-old is hitting .435/.480/.630 with eight extra-base hits and five RBI. Kennys Vargas gets the nod at first base in his place.

Mauer is not in the lineup Thursday against the White Sox, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer has been swinging a hot bat recently, slashing .396/.429/.509 over his last 53 at-bats, but he'll get the day off after starting nine of the last 10 games. Mitch Garver will man first base in his stead, batting fifth.

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

EDGE Analysis

Mauer takes a seat following his best three-game stretch of the season, with the veteran accruing eight hits in 15 at-bats and driving in eight runs over that span. He'll be replaced in the lineup by Eduardo Escobar, who covers the DH spot while Miguel Sano handles Mauer's usual first-base position.

Mauer went 2-for-5 with a double, a homer, a walk, two runs and five RBI Saturday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer's sixth homer of the year extended the Twins lead to four runs in the sixth inning of the road victory. Although he's barely been a fantasy factor this year, he's now collected multiple hits in each of his last three contests, and he could be a player to consider using in lineups while he's running hot.

Mauer went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old Mauer still sports a solid .366 OBP, but his .374 slugging percentage is awful for a first baseman. While hitting in the heart of Minnesota's order has helped Mauer's counting stats, his 44 runs and 43 RBI in 95 games are nothing to write home about.

Mauer is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ehire Adrianza will get the nod at first base in place of Mauer, who is 0-for-12 in his career against Saturday's starter, Cole Hamels. Mauer hasn't done much lately to help fantasy owners in standard formats, but he is getting on base at a .400 clip since the All-Star break. Look for him to return Sunday against right-hander Nick Martinez.

Mauer will bat leadoff during Wednesday's contest against San Diego, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer gets an opportunity to hit at the top of the order with Brian Dozier retreating to the bench for a day off. Since the All-Star break, Mauer is hitting .227/.397/.273 with six RBI and four runs.

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

EDGE Analysis

With southpaw Matt Boyd on the mound for the Tigers, Mauer and fellow left-handed hitter Jason Castro will hit the bench, clearing spots for Miguel Sano and Chris Gimenez at first base and catcher, respectively. Mauer is hitting .234/.300/.266 against left-handed pitching this season, so the Twins are expected to deploy him on the larger side of a platoon at first base or designated hitter the rest of the way.
