06:28 AM ET 03.10 | The Twins' concern over whether catcher Joe Mauer will be available for Opening Day is growing. Mauer is scheduled to undergo a magnetic resonance arthrogram on Wednesday since he has continued to experience discomfort in his lower back nearly 2 1/2 months after undergoing surgery to eliminate a kidney obstruction. The belief by both the Twins and Mauer had been that the catcher would be very close to getting back on the field by this point. Mauer, 25, has been doing light agility drills and conditioning since reporting for Spring Training, but the catcher suffered a setback recently when he tried to do light baseball activities.
