Joe Mauer Injury: Slugger Likely To Miss At Least One More Game

Compared to 2011, Joe Mauer has barely missed any time at all for the Minnesota Twins. That year, he missed over 80 matches because of various injuries that befell him, one of the big reasons why the Twins had one of the worst seasons in franchise history when it was all said and done.

Compared to that, Mauer's recent several game stretch that has seen him out with a sprained thumb since Sunday's game against Cleveland is barely anything. Still, the Twins may be without their star DH/Catcher for a day or two more as he continues his rehab, according to Twincities.com.

"I would say he won't play tomorrow, and then we have the off-day Thursday, and then see where we're at on Friday," assistant general manager Rob Antony said. "It's better, but still a little sore."

The Twins have this Thursday off between series against the Royals and Cubs, and it looks like that day should provide just enough time to get Mauer up and cookin' again in a Twins uniform.
