Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer is 9-for-23 (.391) in his career against White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana.

5/19/2015 10:08:00 PM
Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer had a three-run single in the second inning as Minnesota beat Pittsburgh, 8-5.
Insight: On a 3-2 pitch, Mauer hit a ground ball to where the shortstop normally would be, but with the Pirates in a shift, the hit went down as a single. Brian Dozier was hustling all the way from first and second because Pirates right fielder Starling Marte was a bit lazy with his throw. It all led to a very unusual three-run single. Mauer is hitting .282 with no home runs and 23 RBI in 149 at-bats this season.

Insight: Mauer has really turned it on lately, going 6-for-10 with four RBI in the last two games, but he is still looking for his first home run. Perhaps Friday in this favorable matchup.

Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer was 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs in the loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.

Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer has nine hits, including three home runs, against Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie.

Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer had two hits and an RBI in the, 6-5, loss to the Royals on Tuesday.
Insight: Mauer had an RBI-single in the fourth to score Danny Santana. It was his fifth RBI, but he still doesn't have a home run. Because of the lack of power, Mauer is only fantasy relevant in very deep leagues.
 
4/16/2015 4:42:00 PM
Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer had three RBI in the, 8-5, victory over the Royals on Thursday.
Insight: Mauer was just 1-for-4, but he was a solid run producer on Thursday. Danny Santana scored on Mauer's groundout in the third, Torri Hunter scored on Mauer's single in the fourth and then Shane Robinson scored on Mauer's sacrifice fly in the eighth. Mauer, however, needs to hit more home runs to be fantasy relevant in standard leagues.
 
11/1/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: The Twins will hire Paul Molitor as their next manager, according to Patrick Reusse of 1500ESPN.

9/28/2014 9:53:00 AM
Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer is not a good fantasy start on the last day of the season.

Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer left Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks with a right elbow bruise according to Phil Miller of the Star Tribune.

9/22/2014 5:37:00 PM
Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer is not in the starting lineup against the Diamondbacks.
Insight: It is the last week of the season, so fantasy owners need to expect the stars to sit in meaningless games. Chris Parmelee will start at first base on Monday.
