Mauer is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer hits the bench after a string of six consecutive starts, during which he went 5-for-24 with an RBI and a run scored. Logan Morrison will play first base in Mauer's place Sunday, with shortstop Jorge Polanco assuming the veteran's usual spot atop the lineup.

Mauer is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer was in the field for the entirety of Saturday's game, which was played amid extreme heat in Chicago. The hot weather didn't inhibit Mauer at the plate -- he finished 2-for-5 with three RBI -- but manager Paul Molitor probably reasoned the veteran could benefit from some more time in the dugout Sunday. Mauer will give way to Logan Morrison at first base.

Mauer went 2-for-5 with a three-RBI double in Saturday's 14-9 loss against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer is now 5-for-10 with two doubles, a home run and eight RBI over the first two games of the series in Chicago, yet the Twins have lost both games. The veteran first baseman was only 6-for-39 prior to this series since coming off the disabled list in mid-June, so hopefully the trip to Wrigley Field is getting him back on track.

Mauer is out of the lineup against the White Sox on Thursday, LaVelle E. Neal of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer will take a seat during Thursday's matinee after starting the previous six games. The 35-year-old will be replaced by Logan Morrison at first base while Robbie Grossman gets a start at the DH spot. Look for Mauer to rejoin the fray against the Cubs on Friday.

Mauer is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer has started four straight games since returning from the disabled list over the weekend, so this appears to be simply a maintenance day for the veteran first baseman. Logan Morrison will start at first base in his stead, giving Robbie Grossman a start at DH.

Mauer (neck) was activated from the 10-day DL on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Mauer will rejoin the Twins after spending the past four weeks on the shelf due to a cervical strain. The 35-year-old was able to appear in a few games with Triple-A Rochester and didn't experience any problems, so look for him to immediately rejoin the starting lineup during Friday's series opener in Cleveland. Through 38 games this year, he's hitting .283 with a .759 OPS and 11 RBI.

Mauer (neck) will likely be activated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Friday's game against the Indians, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer is set to meet the Twins in Cleveland on Friday after completing a three-game rehab stint with Triple-A Rochester. He went 0-for-10 with two strikeouts during his time with the Red Wings, but more important is the fact that he was able to play all nine innings of Wednesday's game at first base. Mauer should immediately slide back in as the Twins' primary first baseman upon reinstatement. Prior to landing on the shelf, the veteran was slashing .283/.404/.355 through 38 games.

Mauer (neck) is set to start a minor-league stint at Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Jarrid Denney of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer will likely be penciled into the lineup as the designated hitter for his first rehab game before attempting to play first base. If all goes well, he's expected to give it a shot at first in his second minor-league tilt. Mauer has been on the disabled list since injuring his neck May 18 against Milwaukee, but he could return soon if he can successfully complete a stint in the minors.

Mauer (neck) may need a minor-league rehab assignment before rejoining the Twins, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauer has been on the disabled list since May 19 with a neck issue. He's been hitting and fielding with no issues recently, but it sounds like the Twins want to get him into game action before bringing him off the shelf. "Playing a nine inning game will be different than anything he has done up to this point," manager Paul Molitor said, according to Jarrid Denney of MLB.com.
