Minnesota Twins' catcher Joe Mauer will most likely need more time to recover from concussion-like symptoms. That means he will not be ready to come off the disabled list during next week's home stand. As reported by Mark Emery of MLB.com, Mauer, has been instructed by doctors at the Mayo Clinic, who have been in communication with team doctors, to rest for several days. Mauer will rejoin the team next Tuesday when the Twins host the first of three games against Kansas City. But he most likely will not play until after the series. Should Mauer continue to show progress and no setbacks, he could join the Twins in Texas following the Royals series.  General manager Rob Antony said Mauer could need a rehab assignment, should be he out longer than a couple of weeks. "It's all going to depend," Antony said, "but we're always going to err on the side of caution and take our time with any player, unless every doctor signs off, he takes the test and everything is good and the player says: 'I'm comfortable. I'm ready to go.' Then, he goes back in." Mauer is batting .324 in 113 games this season with 11 home runs and 47 runs batted in.  Last season Mauer batted .319 with 10 home runs and 85 rbi's in 147 games. He is a career .323 hitter with 1,414 hits, 105 home runs and 634 rbi's.
