Minnesota Twins first baseman Joe Mauer has not been able to shake the concussion-like symptoms he has been experiencing since hurting his neck three weeks ago.
Mauer’s return to the lineup hit another road block while working out Thursday before Minnesota’s game against Cleveland, with more sensitivity to light and noise. The 35-year-old has also been dealing with a cervical strain resulting from a dive for a foul ball on May 11. He played for another week before departing mid-game on May 18.
Mauer is batting .283 with a .404 on-base percentage. Logan Morrison and Miguel Sano have been playing first base in his absence.
