Update: Twins placed Joe Mauer on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

Depending on the severity and how long Mauer says this has been an issue, we could at least have an answer for the exceptionally poor performance this year. You couldn't expect that Mauer would suddenly start hitting for power with the move to first base, but you had every right to think you'd be seeing somewhere around 600 at-bats with a high average. Now you're not getting either as he has struggled all year. The move to the DL is good for fantasy owners as it will expedite the move away from using Mauer. Name-recognition is not going to win you a championship, and you've been using him because of who he is for too long.
