FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer, the defending American League batting champ, failed to hit the ball out of the infield in his first three at-bats of a Florida State League rehab assignment Wednesday night.
He walked in his fourth and final at-bat. But results weren't the main thing.
``Felt pretty good,'' Mauer said. ``My timing didn't feel very good.''
A month after being placed on the disabled list with a left quadriceps strain, Mauer caught for the Class A Fort Myers Miracle.
Mauer batted third and played all nine innings. He was taken out for a pinch runner after leading off the bottom of the ninth inning.
