Twins Shut Down Mauer For Rest Of SeasonThe Minnesota Twins are playing it safe with All-Star catcher Joe Mauer after having seen up close the damage concussions can do to a player. The Twins shut Mauer down for the rest of the season on Monday, saying it wasn't worth the risk to try to get him back on the field with the team far out of contention and Mauer still experiencing some symptoms of a concussion he sustained on Aug. 19.

He was hurt when he took a foul ball off his mask against the New York Mets and hasn't played since.
