Mauer back in Twins' lineup

The SportsXchange

Joe Mauer is in the Minnesota Twins' lineup Saturday as the designated hitter and batting third after missing five games with lower back spasms.

The Twins' first baseman last played Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles. He described his back spasms as "pretty brutal" but was able to avoid going on the disabled list.

Heading into Saturday, Mauer had a batting line of .296/.393/.374 this season.
