Mauer is listed as day-to-day, but may still end up on the disabled list. "It's pretty frustrating," Mauer said. "I've never really been healthy the whole year. Especially this time of the year, when we are trying to make a run. I'm trying to get back out there. I just hope it doesn't take too long." Mike Redmond will see most of the playing time in his absence.
From a selfish fantasy point of view, I now hope he takes the week off and gets himself fit enough to perform better for the playoffs.
I'm guessing he will, especially considering the Twins are barely hanging on to playoff hopes. They've always taken a cautious approach with Mauer and young players in general so I don't see this being any different.
