Mauer says he wishes he could play, turns to 2012


Joe Mauer says he's sure there's nothing wrong with him more than the pneumonia that prematurely ended his rough season…Mauer was diagnosed with mild pneumonia on Sept. 16, and doctors recommended medication plus two weeks of rest. He came down with an upper respiratory infection on Sept. 2 before developing a cough and deciding to visit the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Mauer was also out of action for two months earlier while recovering from weakness and soreness in his legs.
