The Minnesota Twins announced today that all-state catcher Joe Mauer will make a switch to first base next season.

Joe Mauer said Thursday he's feeling better, 10 days after he got hit in the facemask with a foul tip behind the plate. But the six-time All-Star acknowledged he's not concerned about catching again this year, just simply returning to the field sometime in September.
