Twins | Could Joe Mauer change positions permanently?

Minnesota Twins C Joe Mauer (concussion) is on the 7-day disabled list due to concussion, and it is his first concussion with signs pointing to it being minor. However, Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said Wednesday, Aug. 21, that while Mauer prefers to stay at catcher, there could be a day when Mauer is shifted to another position or sees his workload behind the plate decreased dramatically. "I don't want to overreact to this thing because it's only happened in the last day, but Joe's preference has always been to catch," Antony said. "When you have what we consider to be the best catcher in the game, it's hard to want to move a guy around, but you let a lot of things dictate that. I'm sure at some point in his career you'll want him in the lineup every day and have that bat in the lineup."
