CHICAGO (AP) Minnesota Twins first baseman Joe Mauer and starter Ricky Nolasco are scheduled to begin minor league rehab stints next week.
Assistant general manager Rob Antony said Friday both players will head to Class A Cedar Rapids and could be ready to return to the majors the following week.
"It's all good and fine as long as everything goes well," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "The whole thing could be changed if they have a setback. You just have to hope it keeps moving on the upward, upward here. It looks like it is."
