ESPN: Twins reinstate Joe Mauer to roster
Mauer spent the maximum three days on the paternity list. He was then transferred to the restricted list, which doesn't require teams to pay players on leave. To make room for Mauer, catcher Drew Butera was optioned to Triple-A Rochester.
First off, if the Twins were in contention, I doubt he's spending that much time away from the team and it's not like he's hurting for $. That said, the amount of births they should add more time. Twins should give you double the amount of days. I guess it get a little ridiculous for Melvin Mora though.
