Our own Darius Austin reported on August 12 that Mauer was activated from the disabled list, even though he still felt soreness in his oblique when swinging and expected to do so for the rest of the season.
Mike Berardino, who covers the Twins for twincities.com, tweeted the following update on Mauer.
Joe Mauer said this left shoulder injury is a re-aggravation of something he did since coming off the DL in Houston on 8/11.Mauer, in his 11th Major League season, is batting .276 with four home runs and 45 RBI in 96 games this season. Mauer had a career season in 2009 when he hit .365 with 28 home runs and 96 RBI. He's a career .319 hitter with 109 home runs and 675 RBI in 1,274 games.
