Joe Mauer went 2-for-2 with two walks and a run scored against the Indians on Saturday.
He walked and scored on a throwing error in the first inning. Mauer's days as a stud fantasy catcher are obviously in the rearview mirror and he is barely usable as a first baseman or designated hitter. He has a decent .282/.356/.397 slash line with only four home runs and 29 RBI in 261 plate appearances. Jun 24 - 9:30 PM

Joe Mauer was hitless with three strikeouts in Friday's loss against the Indians.

Mauer's average has tumbled from .294 to .276 over his past 12 outings, collecting just nine hits across 44 at-bats (.205). He has also posted an un-Mauer-like eight strikeouts over his past five outings. Still, he is slashing .276/.346/.393 and these latest struggles will end up being forgotten by season's end.

It has been vintage Joe Mauer over the past month, as he is hitting .341 (30-for-88) since May 7 to raise his average from .240 to .290. The power has returned a little bit, too, as he is on pace for his most productive seasons since 2013 after a couple of injury-plagued campaigns.

Joe Mauer finished 4-for-5 with a two-run home run and three RBI in Friday's win at L.A. Angels.

Joe Mauer went 4-for-5 with a solo home run, an RBI double and three walks in Sunday's 15-inning, 8-6 loss to the Rays.

Beautiful game for Mauer, though the Twins were unable to put it into the win column. Mauer's fine afternoon started with an RBI double off Alex Cobb in the third inning and he later socked a solo opposite-field homer in the seventh. That one tied the game up at 3-3, but the game would see a number of back-and-forths afterward before the Rays finally came out on top via solo homers by Evan Longoria and Logan Morrison in the top of the 15th inning. Overall, Mauer is hitting .283/.363/.408 with three homers and 18 RBI across 152 at-bats.

Joe Mauer went 2-for-4 and scored a run in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

He reached on a bunt single in the fourth inning, with a run scoring on the play due to a throwing error. He has a .257 batting average with two home runs and 14 RBI. The aging veteran doesn't hit for enough power to make himself a fantasy-worthy first baseman.
May 13 - 8:29 PM

Joe Mauer slugged his first career walk-off homer in Friday’s 4-3 victory over the Red Sox.

What better time for it than his 1,615th career game? After the Red Sox tied the game in the top of the ninth inning, Mauer took Robby Scott deep with two outs in the bottom of the frame. The 34-year-old went 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored on the night. After failing to hit a homer through 21 games in April, he has gone deep twice so far in May. Sadly, there’s not much to get excited about in fantasy leagues at this point.
