Twins activated 1B Joe Mauer from the 10-day disabled list.

Mauer will return to the Twins' starting lineup on Friday night against the Indians after missing nearly a month with lingering concussion symptoms. The veteran first baseman returns to a .283/.404/.355 batting line. He's hit just one home run in 38 major league games this season.
Jun 15 - 1:03 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) will be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Mauer is ready to return despite going hitless in 10 at-bats on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester. He's been sidelined by a concussion since May 19. The 35-year-old can still hit for average (.283 this year) but he's not doing enough to warrant usage in mixed leagues.
Jun 14 - 4:27 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) went 0-for-3 in his first rehab game Tuesday with Triple-A Rochester.

Mauer served as Rochester's designated hitter in this one, but he is scheduled to play nine innings at first base on Wednesday and could come off the disabled list for Friday's series opener in Cleveland if he remains free of concussion symptoms. The veteran first baseman has been sidelined since May 19.
Jun 12 - 7:07 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Rochester.

Mauer is finally ready for live action after battling concussion symptoms off and on for nearly four weeks. He could return to the Twins' active roster this weekend if all goes well on the farm. The veteran first baseman holds a .283/.404/.355 batting line with one home run in 38 major league games this season.
Jun 12 - 5:20 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) isn't close to being cleared for game action.

Mauer's concussion symptoms returned last week, but he resumed workouts earlier this week and hasn't had problems so far. He will work out again Friday but him being sent out on a rehab assignment doesn't appear to be imminent.
Jun 8 - 5:34 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) could undergo a rehab assignment soon.

Mauer has been out since May 19 with concussion-like symptoms. He suffered a setback near the end of May, but he's making progress now, and he's been able to do some work on the field. The Twins will want to see him play -- and play without any issues -- before activating him, but there's a chance the former MVP could be back with the Twins by the middle of the month.
Jun 6 - 5:45 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) went through another on-field workout on Tuesday afternoon.

Mauer had to slow his rehab after his concussion symptoms returned late last week, but he's back on track now. The veteran first baseman could be ready for activation sometime this weekend if he is able to avoid another hiccup. Mauer, 35, had a .283/.404/.355 batting line with one home run through 38 games this season.
Jun 5 - 1:47 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) fielded grounders and took batting practice at Target Field on Sunday.

It's a good sign after Mauer's concussion symptoms returned during an on-field workout last Thursday. He will obviously need to string together many symptom-free days before having a shot to return to the Twins' lineup. Mauer has been out of action since mid-May.
Jun 3 - 12:02 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) suffered a setback on Thursday.

Mauer's concussion symptoms returned during on-field workouts on Thursday. He's still hoping to take batting practice before tonight's game against Cleveland. The Twins were counting on Mauer to return this weekend but that seems to be off the table. Logan Morrison has been filling in for him at first base.
May 31 - 6:28 PM

Twins manager Paul Molitor said Wednesday that he's hopeful Joe Mauer (concussion) can return this weekend.

Mauer has been free of concussion-symptoms for the last week and there was some chatter about him being activated on Thursday, but the Twins don't want to rush the veteran first baseman, who has a long history of head injuries. Mauer is slashing .283/.404/.355 with one home run in 38 games this season.
May 30 - 5:59 PM

Joe Mauer said he hasn't had any concussion symptoms in 4-5 days.

Mauer went through another on-field workout Tuesday and may be ready to come off the disabled list Thursday. He had registered a decent .283/.404/.355 batting line through his first 38 games this season with the Twins.
May 29 - 5:56 PM

Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Joe Mauer (concussion) being activated from the disabled list on Thursday is looking "increasingly likely."

Great to hear. Mauer was placed on the 7-day concussion DL a little over a week ago, but he's feeling much better and will hit in the batting cage again Sunday. If that goes well, he'll work out on the field Monday. Mauer has put up a .283/.404/.355 batting line with one home run over 38 games for the Twins this season.
May 27 - 3:11 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) got treatment at Target Field on Monday and his issues with sensitivity to light and balance are "a little better," according to Twins manager Paul Molitor.

Mauer was placed on the disabled list Saturday with a concussion and given his history the Twins will obviously proceed very cautiously here. Logan Morrison will handle first base for a while and Robbie Grossman should see most of the starts in the designated hitter spot.
May 21 - 5:47 PM

Joe Mauer (concussion) is expected to be at Target Field on Monday.

Mauer was placed on the disabled list Saturday with concussion-like symptoms. He has a history of concussions, of course, and will need to go through MLB's protocol before he has a chance to return. His outlook is totally up in the air, but we could know more Monday.
