The Twins waste a quality start by Carl Pavano, who pitched eight scoreless innings. Meanwhile, catcher Joe Mauer goes to the 15-day disabled list. Mauer will be checked by a Baltimore doctor for leg weakness.
The St. Paul native will get $184 million. The deal covers the 2011-2018 seasons and is the fourth largest both in total value and average salary in major league history. Starting next season, Mauer will make $23 million a year. The deal also includes a full no-trade clause.
