Twins-Angels pregame: Mauer leaves Twins to join twins

BREAKING NEWS: Twins catcher Joe Mauer was scratched from Tuesday night’s lineup so he could return to the Twin Cities to be with his wife, Maddie, who has gone into labor with the couple’s twins.

The Angels are probably relieved. Mauer is 11-for-14 against them this season, including three hits Monday night.

In what could be a related move, Oswaldo Arcia was removed from the game at Class AAA Rochester in the third inning Tuesday night. He could replace Mauer, who will be away indefinitely on paternity leave.

The Minnesota version of “Royal Baby Watch” has begun!
