Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo interviewed for the Twins' managerial position late last week, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports.
Cafardo previously reported the BoSox had granted the Twins permission to conduct an interview, and apparently that interview took place sometime during the week. That makes three different openings for which Lovullo has interviewed, as he also interviewed with the Rangers and Astros, before the Astros hired A.J. Hinch. Chip Hale, Paul Molitor, Doug Mientkiewicz, John Russell and Sandy Alomar Jr. are a few of the other names being considered for the Twins' job. Oct 11 - 6:23 PM

Alomar is the seventh known candidate linked to the Twins, joining Torey Lovullo, Chip Hale, Paul Molitor, Doug Mientkiewicz, Gene Glynn and John Russell. A 20-year major league veteran, Alomar has been on Cleveland's coaching staff for six years, serving as the bench coach for the past two seasons. He has interviewed for other managerial openings over the past few years.

Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com reports that the Twins have asked for and been given permission to interview Athletics bench coach Chip Hale for their managerial vacancy.

The Twins interviewed High-A Fort Myers manager Doug Mientkiewicz for their managerial opening on Thursday.

He joins coach Paul Molitor as those that have interviewed thus far, with Molitor being considered the early favorite.

It's not clear at this point which candidates from outside the organization will be considered.
Oct 3 - 9:24 AM

Darren Wolfson of 1500-ESPN reports that the Twins will interview Paul Molitor for their managerial vacancy on Thursday.

This confirms a report from La Velle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Twins bench coach Terry Steinbach is also expected to interview for the job, but Wolfson is calling Molitor the "front-runner." The Hall of Famer hasn't managed before, but he has extensive coaching experience and was on the Twins' staff this season with a focus on baserunning, bunting, in-game strategy, and infield instruction.
Oct 1 - 4:07 PM

Joe Mauer (elbow) is back in Thursday's lineup against the Tigers.

Mauer left Tuesday's game after being hit on the elbow with a pitch and sat out Wednesday, but he's ready to give it a go. He'll hit third and play first base.
Sep 25 - 4:15 PM

Joe Mauer (elbow) is not expected to play Wednesday.

Mauer exited Tuesday's contest after being hit on the right elbow by a pitch. The pitch hit a nerve, sending a tingling sensation through his arm, and he also had noticeable swelling. He's day-to-day, though, and should be back this weekend in Detroit.
Sep 24 - 12:09 AM

Joe Mauer exited Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks with a right elbow contusion.

Mauer was hit by an Andrew Chafin pitch in the first inning. He's being called day-to-day and it doesn't sound like any X-rays will be taken.
Sep 23 - 8:49 PM

Joe Mauer is not in Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

Here's a reminder that this is the last week of the season and fantasy owners need to be prepared to roll with the punches. Chris Parmelee will start at first base Monday.
Sep 22 - 4:28 PM

Joe Mauer drove in four runs with a pair of singles Monday against the Tigers.

If only Mauer had hit like his usual self in the first half, he could have racked up some nice RBI numbers behind a surprisingly productive top of the Twins order. At least he has been better since coming off the DL, driving in 22 runs in 34 games. He had just 28 RBI in 76 games before getting hurt.
Sep 15 - 11:44 PM

Joe Mauer finished 3-for-4 with four RBI in the Twins' 6-4 defeat of the Orioles on Monday.

Mauer struck out swinging in his first at-bat, but he singled in the fourth inning, hit a two-run triple in the sixth inning, and then added a two-run single in the eighth. Mauer has been serving as the Twins' designated hitter for the past few games because of a sore shoulder but he is expected to return to first base this week.
Sep 1 - 4:26 PM

Joe Mauer is not in Thursday's lineup against the Royals.

He's presumably just getting a breather. Chris Parmelee will start at first base.
Aug 28 - 4:48 PM

Joe Mauer went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

Mauer broke a scoreless tie with his RBI single off Royals starter Danny Duffy in the seventh inning. The run batted in was Mauer's 40th RBI on the year. The 31-year-old has come back swinging since returning from his oblique injury, batting .309 with 12 RBI in the month of August.
Aug 26 - 11:22 PM

Joe Mauer doubled, drew two walks, and knocked in three runs in Saturday's win against the Tigers in the first game of a double-header.

Mauer singled in a run in the first inning and doubled in a pair in the second. He has hit well since returning from an oblique injury on August 11, now batting .357 (15-for-42) in his last 42 at-bats. Mauer now owns a .281/.361/.383 slash line with four home runs and 38 RBI.
