Twins catcher Joe Mauer will not return from the 7-day concussion disabled list when he’s first eligible.

“Joe is at home,” Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony told LaVelle E. Neal of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune on Saturday night in Cleveland. “They advised him just to lay low and rest right now. They think the best thing he can use is rest. Rather than going in and seeing (team rehab coordinator Lanning Tucker) and talking to Lanning about what they might do — since they really didn’t have any plans for him to start exercising for a few days they said come in Tuesday and we will go from there.”

Mauer took multiple foul tips off his catcher’s mask last Monday against the Mets and experienced dizziness while trying to participate in pregame batting practice the next evening. He was officially placed on the 7-day disabled list on August 20.

You can expect the out-of-contention Twins to play this thing as cautiously as possible.

    As they should rest him. Why rush him back when the games are meaningless like my Phillies are rushing Doc back, pointless!! Let Big Joe rest and come back healthy and concussion symptom free!!
