Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer has not cleared his concussion symptoms yet. Mauer was missing from the lineup for the 16th straight game Friday, when the Twins started a series against Toronto. The All-Star said after taking batting practice he had “a good day,” but the recovery process has been slow. Mauer said there’s no timetable for his return but that he hopes to be back “sooner than later.” He was hurt on Aug. 19, hit in the facemask by a foul ball.
The Minnesota Twins say All-Star catcher Joe Mauer is not going to be activated from the seven-day concussion list when the team begins a homestand next week. Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said doctors have told Mauer to rest until at least Tuesday, the day he would be eligible to come off the concussion disabled list. Mauer was placed on the list earlier this week after he became dizzy during his pregame routine. The Twins sent him back to Minnesota from Detroit, and the 2009 AL MVP visited a specialist at the Mayo Clinic on Friday.
