CLEVELAND (AP) — Catcher Joe Mauer is out of the Minnesota Twins lineup as expected.

The former AL MVP and batting champion has some general soreness, and with the Twins playing a day game Sunday in Cleveland after a night game, backup catcher Drew Butera started against the Indians.

Mauer missed two months earlier this season with leg weakness. He is one of 20 Twins to go on the disabled list this year.

In 61 games, Mauer has hit .284, but with only one home run and 23 RBIs. That’s not what the Twins expected when they signed him to an eight-year contract extension in March.
