Twins | Joe Mauer cleared
Minnesota Twins C Joe Mauer (concussion) has been cleared for light exercise Friday, Aug. 23, after being put on the 7-day disabled list earlier this week with dizziness. He visited with a specialist Friday, and the results were favorable. "They told him to go home and rest," assistant general manager Rob Antony said before Minnesota opened a three-game series with the Cleveland Indians. "He'll see the trainer (Saturday) and then start trying to figure out when he's ready to start exercising. Depending on how he feels, he might start walking and exercising. It's kind of a play-it-by-ear, day-by-day thing."
Fantasy Tip: With the team far out of contention, they have no reason to rush Mauer back. That makes it rather unlikely that he'll return when his 7-day DL stint is up. Be patient and fill your catcher spot if you own him.
