Twins' Paul Molitor considering Joe Mauer in leadoff role
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins manager Paul Molitor is looking for a spark at the top of the batting order. He thinks that spark may be in his top player, Joe Mauer, according to MLB.com.

"I had him potentially doing that," Molitor said. "I had him also hitting second behind [Brian] Dozier. There were points made regarding Dozier's propensity to be able to score runs last year and Joe hit behind him quite a bit, so we talked about different combinations of how to get those guys in there."

Mauer has never hit lead off in his career.

"You can go to your sabermetrics experts and a lot of times they're going to come up with Joe at the top of the lineup, and I understand that. How that would play in terms of him getting a chance to get hits with men in scoring position and do some other things that he's been doing pretty well, I'm not sure."

Mauer is hitting .271 with five RBI in 59 at-bats this season.

Twins' Joe Mauer limited to one extra-base hit in first two weeks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins first baseman Joe Mauer owns a .273 batting average after two weeks but has been limited to just one extra-base hit in his first 12 games.

Mauer had been limited to singles before going 2 for 4 with a double Saturday. He owns a .273/.353/.295 line in 44 at-bats. The first baseman managed just four home runs in 455 at-bats last season and could be in for another low-power season this year.

Twins' Oswaldo Arcia, Kennys Vargas out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia and designated hitter Kennys Vargas are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against lefty Chris Sale and the White Sox.

The team is going righty-heavy against Sale, with Joe Mauer, who is serving as the team's designated hitter Sunday, the only lefty in the lineup. Third baseman Trevor Plouffe moves across the diamond to play first base, while Eduardo Escobar and Eduardo Nunez enter the lineup in place of Arcia and Vargas.

The Twins are underdogs (+135) against the White Sox Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.

Molitor: Mauer could get occasional break from the field this season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins manager Paul Molitor told reporters he plans to give first baseman Joe Mauer an occasional break from the field throughout the season, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Saturday.

"Probably more DH-ing than sitting," Molitor said. "If Joe is healthy, I want him to play. I've told him that. We'll see how it goes. You don't expect him to play 162. We're all hoping Joe stays healthy, and we're going to try to play him as much as we can as long as he feels like he can go out there and help our team."
