Twins | Joe Mauer loves the Trop

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 22:29:40 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He is 4-for-5 with six RBIs this season with the bases loaded and less than two outs. He has now reached base in 28 of the past 29 games at Tropicana Field, and he has 46 hits in 114 at-bats (.404) all-time in St. Petersburg.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is a must-start in FantasyScore heading into Thursday's series finale against the Rays.

Twins | Joe Mauer, Kurt Suzuki numbers against Sabathia

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 14:48:21 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Joe Mauer is hitting .171 with 16 strikeouts in 41 career at-bats against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia. C Kurt Suzuki is 7-for-33 with four home runs off Sabathia. The Twins face Sabathia Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) hasn't been bad against lefties, but his poor history against Sabathia says to look elsewhere on FantasyScore tonight. Suzuki ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) isn't popular among the daily crowd, but tonight may be the time to look to him as a sleeper.

Twins | Joe Mauer has hits in 10 straight

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 19:56:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer went 1-for-5 with a run scored Wednesday, July 29, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, extending his hitting streak to 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is hitting .308 during his hitting streak, which is only slightly better than his overall batting average for the season. He has no homers, three runs scored and just one RBI during the run, which has been mostly littered with singles. In other words, don't get too terribly excited in FantasyScore despite seeing the double-digit hit streak on the board.

Twins | Joe Mauer out against LHP

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:50:56 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, with 3B Trevor Plouffe hitting third and playing first.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is 4-for-12 (.333) lifetime off CC Sabathia and has a .282-4-12 line this month. He's a good start on FantasyScore today.

Twins | Big game for Joe Mauer

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 20:01:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer went 4-for-5 with a home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in a 5-3 win over the Kansas City Royals Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has had a tough year overall, and his .272 average is well below his career mark. Meanwhile, he has hit just five homers as his power continues to erode. Big games like tonight's are becoming the exception rather than the norm for Mauer, and there are usually more attractive options for a similar price at FantasyScore.

Twins | Joe Mauer returns

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:13:25 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer returns to the starting lineup Thursday, July 2, against the Kansas City Royals. Mauer will hit third in the lineup against RHP Chris Young.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has fared a little better at the plate of late, going 7-for-22 in his last five starts. Still, Mauer remains without any reliable power, and FantasyScore owners can find options with much more upside.

Twins | Joe Mauer sitting out

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 08:00:35 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 1, in favor of 1B Kennys Vargas.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good day for Mauer to sit in the NL park against ace Johnny Cueto. Vargas ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) had a .235-2-5 line in June, and his matchup is one to avoid on FantasyScore.

Twins | Joe Mauer resting for Game 1

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 07:47:06 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is out of the lineup for Game 1 of the doubleheader Wednesday, June 3, against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Shane Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) took the open spot in the lineup, but he doesn't have enough upside to use on FantasyScore.

Twins | Joe Mauer out of lineup

Thu, 07 May 2015 08:53:35 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is out of the lineup Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Eddie Rosario ($1,800, 3.6% of your cap) takes Mauer's place in the lineup, but he has just four major league at-bats. He's not an option we'd use on FantasyScore.

Twins | Joe Mauer pulling the ball more

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:58:34 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer has never been much of a pull hitter in his career, with just 344 of his 1,540 hits (22.3%) going to the pull side in his 11 seasons before 2015. However, he's already pulled 10 of his 29 hits (33.5%) to right field through 25 games this year. But Mauer said it hasn't been a point of emphasis this year. "We talked about this in spring training. It's more of a physical thing than anything, just being able to move and being able to get to those pitches," Mauer said. "I've always had that approach of trying to spray the field. It's no different this year." Part of the reason may be because Mauer is being more aggressive early in counts, and manager Paul Molitor noticed Mauer is swinging at more first pitches than in the past. Mauer has swung at the first pitch seven times this year after swinging at the first pitch 27 times all of 2014. He is hitting .305 on the year after a career-low .277 average last season, and a return to full health has been a big reason why.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) was left to the waiver wire in a lot of shallow mixed leagues, but he's worth a pickup if you're looking for consistency at a first base or corner infield spot.
