If you’re Joe Mauer or Jake Mauer, you’re having a pretty good day.
Joe Mauer, after receiving several opinions, will NOT need hernia surgery. Joe had the procedure done in 2004 and doctors agree that there’s no reason to go back in. Joe is resting for a couple weeks but is expected to swing into full offseason workout mode soon.
Jake Mauer on Tuesday was named manager of the Twins’ rookie league team in the Gulf Coast League. He’s been a coach there the past two seasons.
It’s unknown at this point if Jake will implement Qwickswing sessions with his hitters. (Just kidding!)
