Description: Minnesota first baseman Joe Mauer has batted .333 with three doubles, two homers, seven RBI, eight walks and five runs in 11 games since he returned from the disabled list.
Insight: Mauer has his average up to .278 and his OPS to .732. He hit .300 or better seven times in the previous 10 seasons and has never batted below .287, but he'll need to bat nearly .360 in the final 35 games to hit .300 this season. He's 23-for-62 (.371) with four doubles, three homers and 12 walks in his career against Tigers starter Justin Verlander, so he could be a solid first base option Saturday.

Insight: Mauer's 19 percent K rate, .263 average and .678 OPS are all career worsts. This may be the last year he's even worth owning in fantasy, as he will lose catcher eligibility next year and is a below-average fantasy first baseman.
