Good news for the Twins on the Joe Mauer front

May 5, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

The reigning MVP has an MRI on his BLH (bruised left heel) and the news is positive: it’s a soft tissue bruise as opposed to a bone bruise. Doctors and people like that who know about such things tell La Velle Neal of the Strib that the soft tissue stuff is far preferable due to a shorter healing time.

Neal also reports that the Twins and Nike are working on a special shoe for him that will help cushion his heel when he returns.  Which is rather surprising because, based on everything we’ve seen in recent months, I was of the impression that Nike is primarily in the image rehabilitation business and only dabbled in athletic footwear.
