He’s back.  Pun Intended.  Joe Mauer is set to make his triumphant return against the Kansas City Royals.  The two-time Batting Champ will not only bolster the Twins sagging Offense (10th in the AL in average, 12th in Runs) with his bat, but also a struggling pitching staff (10th in ERA) with his ability to call a game.  It will be harder to steal bases on the Twins, who currently rank 9th in Caught Stealing Percentage.
