Twins to keep Mauer on concussion list, no excercise


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.

WCCO reports that 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, reports the Washington Post, and the 2009 AL MVP visited a specialist at the Mayo Clinic on Friday.

It was originally thought Mauer would report to Target Field and possibly begin an exercise program on Saturday, but doctors have decided it’s best for him to rest until next week.
