Twins Place Mauer On DL
The Twins placed catcher Joe Mauer on the 15-day disabled list with leg weakness and called up catcher Steve Holm from triple-A Rochester to replace him on the active roster. Mauer will fly to Baltimore to see a specialist before returning to the Twin Cities to begin rehab. Mauer was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 13. Manager Ron Gardenhire feels Mauer has been compensating for his knee injury and it has caused bi-lateral leg weakness and hip soreness. Drew Butera will assume the regular catching responsibilities for the Twins.
