Mauer had left the Twins yesterday to fly back to the Twin Cities to be with his wife when her water broke. These are the first children for Joe and Maddie who got married this past December and announced they were expecting in March.
Mauer will be replaced on the Twins roster by Drew Butera. In 25 games with the Red Wings, Butera is hitting .215 (17-for-79) with two doubles, two home runs and 10 RBI
