Joe Mauer is still on the DL for the Twins but today he is taking another step toward his return. Joe Mauer will be the DH today for Class A in Fort Myers, Florida. Hopefully he feels good tomorrow and is able to take the next step to returning to the everyday lineup.

UPDATE: Joe Mauer will be joined by Tsuyoshi Nishioka as they both will being doing rehab stints this week in Triple-A. Mauer has been on the DL with the famous leg weakness and Nishioka has been on the DL since breaking his fibula when Nick Swisher tried breaking up a double play. Nishioka will most likely make an extended stint in Triple-A to get a more comfortable swing.
