Minnesota Twins star Joe Mauer was put on the seven-day concussion disabled list after he experienced dizziness during his pregame route and was scratched from the lineup against the Detroit Tigers.
The Minnesota Twins are getting nearly all of their runs via the long ball these days. And that’s a problem as they continue to go nowhere in the AL Central.

P.J. Walters outdueled the Detroit Tigers’ Doug Fister in his season debut with the Minnesota Twins but unearned runs have helped spoil a pair of respectable outings for the right-hander recently.
Trevor Plouffe had three hits, including a two-run homer, in his return to the Twins lineup, and Sam Deduno held Detroit in check over seven innings in Minnesota’s 6-3 victory over the Tigers on Saturday night.

Joe Mauer provided the early power, and P.J. Walters gave Minnesota the start it needed on that mound.
