 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Joe Mauer is headed back to the Minnesota Twins this weekend.
The Twins said Thursday that they plan to activate their catcher from the 15-day disabled list before Friday's game against the Washington Nationals. Mauer, last year's AL batting champion, missed 29 games because of a strained left quadriceps muscle. He was hitting .353 when the injury occurred.
Mauer played in a simulated game with minor leaguers on Tuesday and went 0-for-3 with a walk on Wednesday in a Florida State League game with Class-A Fort Myers, catching the whole game until being removed for a pinch runner in the ninth.
Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has said he'll consider moving Mauer to the second spot in the lineup. Michael Cuddyer, Justin Morneau and Torii Hunter have hit well in the third, fourth and fifth spots during Mauer's absence.
To make room on the roster, left-handed reliever Jason Miller will be optioned to Triple-A Rochester. After three scoreless appearances, Miller allowed eight runs while only getting one out against the Los Angeles Angels on Monday.
