by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:46 pm ET) Twins catcher Joe Mauer told the St. Paul Pioneer Press Tuesday he is encouraged by how his oblique injury has responded to fielding work, but still has some work to do before he is in game shape.

Mauer has been taking dry swings while working out before games, but has yet to even try to swing at half speed. He has been out since July 1 as a result of this injury, and remains without a concrete timetable until he can swing at full speed.

Mauer has been out since July 1 while recovering from an oblique injury. He'll soon hit balls off a tee and soft toss before progressing to facing live pitching.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"I talked to him yesterday before the game," manager Ron Gardenhire said Saturday. "He said there's certain things he does right now -- coughing and sneezing and stuff like that -- where he definitely feels it. So he's obviously not ready to take swings or any of that stuff. But he's taking a few ground balls."

Mauer, who was placed on the disabled list on July 2, remains without a timetable for return. He has hit .271/.342/.353 with two home runs and 28 RBI in 303 at-bats.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Indians outfielder Nick Swisher put together a big performance in the first game after the All-Star break, in a 9-3 win over the Tigers.

Swisher went 2 for 5 in the game, and he got the scoring started for the Indians with a two-run single in the seventh inning. He added an RBI double in the ninth as well, as he drove in three runs and scored 1 in the win.

This has been a season to forget for Swisher, who is hitting just .211/.290/.352 overall, but he is finding his swing recently. In the month of July, Swisher has three home runs and 14 RBI, while hitting .300/.327/.520 in 50 at-bats.
