Twins | Joe Mauer hoping to return

Minnesota Twins C Joe Mauer (concussion) provided some encouraging signs during his workout Thursday, Sept. 19, and the team is optimistic that he will play in the final week of the season. However, Mauer has yet to resume baseball activities, but will shortly. He no longer has headaches or is experiencing concussion-related symptoms. "So there's some positive news on that," general manager Terry Ryan said. "Slowly and surely he's getting better and today was one of the better days. He'll be back at the stadium tomorrow. We'll take him when we can get him. He didn't do any baseball activity but he did some of the leg work and that type of stuff. That's better than I've been telling you. He's making some progress."

Fantasy Tip: Hold onto him if you must, but we don't see Mauer making any real impact to push your fantasy squad over the hump to capture that elusive title. It's probably best to look elsewhere in this final week and a half.
