In this June 27, 2013, photo, Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer warms up before a baseball game between the Kansas City Royals in Minneapolis. The Twins are shutting down All-Star catcher Mauer for the rest of the season while he recovers from a concussion. The Twins made the decision on Monday, Sept. 23, 2013, before starting the final seven-game homestand of the season. General manager Terry Ryan and Mauer both say that the former AL MVP is making progress. But they don't want to take any unnecessary risks with the Twins far out of contention in the AL Central.
