Joe Mauer and Philip Humber

Joe Mauer quick hits:

  • On Monday in Fort Myers, Mauer went 1-3 with a double and 2 walks during a simulated game.
  • Yesterday Mauer went 2-6 in an extended spring training game.
  • Tomorrow he will play in the 1st of his 6 games with the Hi-A Fort Myers Miracle.
  • He remains on track to return to the Twins roster on May 1st.

In other news: 

Tuesday RHP Philip Humber cleared waivers and was sent to Triple-A Rochester to join the rotation.  Designating Humber for assignment last Friday to claim Juan Morillo was a good move in itself.  Since the end result is that the Twins were able to keep Humber and add Morillo to the roster, this became a great move.
