Jun 1 - 1:20 PM

Joe Mauer went 2-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and a walk against the Mariners on Friday.

Mauer seems to be finding his stroke again after a rough three weeks to open May. He's been a fine player overall this year, with his .281 average, .389 OBP and .401 slugging percentage. Still, with four homers, 15 runs scored and 15 RBI in 46 games, he hasn't been able to do much for his fantasy owners.
May 28 - 1:18 AM

Joe Mauer went 3-for-5 with a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Royals.

The longball came in the first inning off of Ian Kennedy and was Mauer's third of the season. The power has still been lacking for Mauer, and he's cooled off in May after a nice April. However, he's still been productive overall with a .380 on-base percentage.

Joe Mauer is not in the Twins starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Blue Jays.

Manager Paul Molitor is opting to give Mauer a breather against opposing southpaw J.A. Happ. The 33-year-old is hitting .265/.377/.361 with two homers and 11 RBI through his first 41 games.
May 21 - 11:24 AM

Joe Mauer ripped a solo homer in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

It was one of two solo blasts that the Twins had -- Miguel Sano had the other -- and they put the club in a 2-0 lead going into the bottom of the seventh. That's when the Tigers erupted for seven runs. Mauer has slumped this month after a big April but is still sporting a nice .274/.389/.378 batting line.
May 17 - 11:41 PM

Joe Mauer will hit leadoff Monday against the Orioles.

This will be his first ever start out of the leadoff spot. Mauer leads the AL with a .420 on-base percentage, so it's not a bad idea as the club tries to create some offense. The last-place Twins have lost five in a row and nine out of 10.
May 9 - 4:42 PM

Joe Mauer is not in the Twins' lineup Saturday against the White Sox.

This will be his first absence of 2016. It's just a maintenance day for the veteran, who probably wouldn't have fared well against Chicago left-hander Chris Sale. Byung Ho Park will sub in at first base with Miguel Sano sliding in as the DH. Mauer's production has tailed off in recent years but he's off to a nice start, hitting .311 with an absurd .433 on base percentage.
