Twins GM: Mauer can be a .300 hitter again, will play 1B

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Once one of the game's great hitters, Joe Mauer hasn't been the same force in the batter's box for two years now.

Mauer is coming off one of the worst offensive seasons of his career, but Minnesota Twins general manager Terry Ryan believes he can return to being a difference-maker at the plate.

"I don't want to put limits on Joe Mauer, but I certainly think he can get in the .300s," Ryan said Tuesday. "I'm looking more at some of those other numbers. His strikeouts were high. His walks were lower. On-base percentage was lower. I think he can do better than that."
