Mauer returns to field in Cedar Rapids minor league game
CEDAR RAPIDS, Ia. -- Baseball fans in Cedar Rapids, Iowa get a special treat tonight when Twins star Joe Mauer makes his return to the field by playing for the Twins' Class A affiliate there.
Mauer has been on the disabled list since July 2nd and figures to ease his way back into the lineup. He says the plan is for him to get some at-bats, maybe designated hitter, then play some first base the next night -- working his way back to play nine innings.
