Twins Joe Mauer to the DL with Oblique Injury

MLB ScoresThe Minnesota Twins announced first baseman Joe Mauer has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique . First baseman/outfielder Chris Colabello has been recalled from Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move. Mauer suffered the injury on the game against Kansas City Wednesday night.

Mauer, 31, is hitting .271/.342/.353  with 17 doubles, two homers and 28 RBI in 76 games this season. In 40 games for the Twins this year, Colabello is hitting .232/.280/.377  with 10 doubles, four homers and 30 RBI.

Most oblique injuries require two to three weeks minimum of rest and rehab, so a short stint on the DL seems unlikely.  He’ll be eligible to return immediately after the All-Star break, though it’s not clear at this time whether he’ll be ready to return then.

The team activated 3B Trevor Plouffe earlier this week from the 15-day disabled list. Plouffe wound up missing exactly 15 days with a strained left oblique.

    Thats ok, the Twins don’t need Mauer to beat these Yankees, as a matter of fact, the Twins should be able to sweep the Yankees easily.
