09:52 AM ET 04.16 | The Twins placed Joe Mauer on the DL with bilateral leg weakness after Thursday night's game and at that time had little more to offer in the way of explanation for the catcher's sudden and intense soreness. But Mauer had begun to feel sick to his stomach during the game, and bouts of vomiting were severe enough for the team to send him to a hospital. Rod Gardenhire said the team believes Mauer's viral infection set in three or four days prior to the symptoms becoming obvious Thursday night. The manager also said that news of the infection eased his mind about Mauer's physical state and about how much time he might spend on the disabled list. "We feel pretty good about that now," Gardenhire said.

that's just a weird story...this is why you don't let your backup catcher give food to the starting catcher

Yeah that tough guy attitude has killed people before.

Too bad they put him on the 15 day DL before realizing it was just the flu. Good thing they have Wilson Ramos in waiting. . .

Well, you can't make an omelet without killing a few people.
