Mauer on paternity list after birth of twins

The Minnesota Twins placed catcher Joe Mauer on paternity leave after his wife gave birth to twins on Tuesday night.

Mauer was scratched from the lineup for Tuesday night’s game and took a flight from California after he learned that his wife, whose due date was Aug. 31, was in labor.

Maddie Mauer gave birth to twins Emily and Maren early Wednesday morning, the team announced. Mauer made it back in time fto witness the births.

Chris Herrmann started in Mauer’s place on Tuesday night behind the plate and hit a 10th-inning grand slam that lifted the Twins past the Angels.

Catcher Drew Butera is expected to join the Twins from Triple-A Rochester for Wednesday night’s game against the Angels in Anaheim.

Players on the paternity list are permitted to leave the team for 24 to 72 hours. It was not immediately known when Mauer would rejoin the Twins.
