Twins' Joe Mauer: Takes seat following five-RBI performance

Mauer is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Mauer takes a seat following his best three-game stretch of the season, with the veteran accruing eight hits in 15 at-bats and driving in eight runs over that span. He'll be replaced in the lineup by Eduardo Escobar, who covers the DH spot while Miguel Sano handles Mauer's usual first base position.
