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.
Insight: Not many are against Tigers pitcher David Price, but Mauer is just 3-for-20 against Price in his career. One of those hits is a double while Mauer also has two RBI, four walks and six strikeouts against the Tiger lefty.
 
9/23/2014 8:58:00 PM
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.
Insight: Arizona pitcher Andrew Chafin hit Mauer with a pitch in the first inning. Mauer is being called day-to-day. It didn't sound like an x-ray would be necessary.
 
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.
 
9/17/2014 11:28:00 AM
Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer is a .167 hitter (3-for-18), with five strikeouts against Tigers' starter David Price.
Insight: Mauer has had a disappointing season in 2014, and that trend could continue tonight versus one of Detroit's aces.
 
9/12/2014 1:36:00 PM
Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer is a .444 hitter (9-for-18) against White Soxc starter Jose Quintana.
Insight: For the season, he is hitting just.272 with four home runs and 46 RBI, which is certainly disappointing based on his historic standards.
 
9/6/2014 11:15:00 PM
Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer was 2-for-3 with a walk on Saturday in a loss against the Angels.
Insight: Mauer has been getting on base a lot lately, with at least a hit and a walk in each of his last four games. In his last eight games, Mauer is batting .344 with a double, a triple and six RBI. For the season, he is hitting just.277 with four home runs and 46 RBI, which is disappointing based on his standards.
 
9/3/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer is a career .393 hitter versus White Sox left-hander John Danks
Insight: Interestingly, none of the 22 hits are home runs and only three are extra-base hits. Mauer's numbers are below expectations this season and he's also missed time due to injury. The career .319 hitter is batting just .273 this season.
 
9/1/2014 5:59:00 PM
Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer went 3-for-4 with a triple and four RBI Monday at Baltimore.
Insight: Mauer went 3-for-23 (.130) in his last seven games of August after getting his average up to .281 on Aug. 23. After his three-hit game Monday, Mauer is hitting .276 with four homers, 45 RBI, 51 runs and a .731 OPS in 377 at-bats.
 
Cold8/29/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer returned to the Twins lineup on Friday and went 0-for-3.
Insight: Mauer pinched hit on Thursday, which was a routine day of rest. The first baseman has one hit in his last 15 at-bats.
 
8/28/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer is not in the Twins lineup on Thursday against Kansas City.
Insight: It's just a normal day of rest for Mauer. Too bad because he has a career 1.204 OPS against Jeremy Guthrie in 25 at-bats.
 
8/28/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer is a career .360 hitter versus Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie.
Insight: Nothing unusual there, Mauer is a .319 hitter against everyone. What is unusual is that he's hit three homers and has a 1.204 OPS against Guthrie in 25 at-bats.
 
Hot8/23/2014 4:44:00 PM
Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer went 2-for-3 with a double, three RBI, two walks and two runs in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against Detroit.
Insight: Mauer has gone 15-for-42 (.357) with four doubles, two homers, 10 RBI and 10 walks since he returned from an oblique strain on Aug. 11. His average is up to .281, the highest it's been since May 27.
 
Hot8/23/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer has batted .333 with three doubles, two homers, seven RBI, eight walks and five runs in 11 games since he returned from the disabled list.
Insight: Mauer has his average up to .278 and his OPS to .732. He hit .300 or better seven times in the previous 10 seasons and has never batted below .287, but he'll need to bat nearly .360 in the final 35 games to hit .300 this season. He's 23-for-62 (.371) with four doubles, three homers and 12 walks in his career against Tigers starter Justin Verlander, so he could be a solid first base option Saturday.
 
Hot8/18/2014 10:21:00 AM
Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer is a career .417 hitter (10-for-24) versus Royals starter Jason Vargas.
Insight: Mauer has hit safely in five of six games, including a pair of home runs since he returned from the DL to raise his average to .275. He still has more to go if he's to reach his career average of .320, but this favorable matchup could help.
 
8/17/2014 11:13:00 AM
Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer is a career .333 hitter (8-for-24) with a pair of home runs versus Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie.
Insight: Mauer has hit safely in four of five games since he returned from the DL to raise his average to .273, but he still has more to go if he's to reach his career average of .320.
