Twins | Joe Mauer to DL

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 08:11:35 -0700

The Minnesota Twins placed 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain. Minnesota recalled 1B/OF Chris Colabello from Triple-A Rochester.

Fantasy Tip: Shame -- he was starting to turn things around, including running off an ongoing 12-game hit streak. Mauer's disappointing season becomes even more depressing. At least you can stash him without having him hurt you in the lineup. This could be a lengthy absence, though. Colabello, meanwhile, regains some juice in deep-mixed leagues and might be worth checking out. Despite his slump before his demotion, he had a scorching start to the season.
