Report: Twins 1B Mauer coming off DL
Minnesota Twins first baseman Joe Mauer was on his way to Houston on Monday and will come off the disabled list, according to MLB.com.
Mauer has been sidelined for a month with a strained oblique muscle. He is reportedly scheduled to be activated for Monday night's game against the host Astros.
Mauer went 6-for-15 in four minor-league rehab games at Single-A Cedar Rapids.
After a slow start to the season, Mauer is batting .271 with two home runs and 28 RBIs. He had a 12-game hitting streak at the time of his injury.
