MINNESOTA SPORTS ROUND-UP: Twins keep Mauer out of line-up for duration of season
MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins are shutting down All-Star catcher Joe Mauer for the rest of the season.
Mauer has been out since suffering a concussion August 19th after taking a foul tip off his catcher's mask. GM Terry Ryan said there are no setbacks or red flags, but doctors advised the best thing was to have Mauer get healthy as soon as possible and be ready for next year. The Twins finish their third straight 90-loss season at home against the Tigers and Indians.
