    • Joe Mauer: Announces retirement
      By RotoWire Staff

      Mauer announced his retirement, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "The decision came down to my health and my family. The risk of concussion is always there, and I was reminded of that this season after missing over 30 games as a result of diving for a foul ball," he said. His retirement is not a surprise since Mauer had a dramatic sendoff in his last game, including putting on the catching gear for one last time for part of an inning. He retires with a career .306 batting average, .388 OBP, six All-Star appearances, three Gold Gloves and the Twins' franchise record for most times on base. Mauer's production declined after a concussion in 2013 moved him to first base and ended his time as a catcher, but he still has a strong case for the Hall of Fame.

    • Twins' Joe Mauer: Considering retirement
      By RotoWire Staff

      Mauer is considering retirement at the end of the season, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "There's a lot of different dynamics that go into it. I owe it to myself and my family to sit down and think about those things," he said. Mauer is in the final season of an eight-year, $184 million contract. Mauer and his agent haven't talked to the Twins about a contract for next season. He's still getting on base enough (.345 OBP) for the Twins to sign him to a short-term deal for next season, but it's possible Mauer may chose to retire at age 35 rather than face the prospect of signing with another team.
