Mauer may be starting his last homestand as Twins host Tigers

When the Minnesota Twins host the Detroit Tigers Tuesday night at Target Field in the opener of their season-ending seven-game homestand, it could mark the beginning of the end for franchise icon Joe Mauer.

The veteran catcher turned first baseman and St. Paul native becomes a free agent after the season ends. He said last month retirement is something he'll consider but for the time being, he wanted to focus on closing out the 2018 campaign on a high note.

Mauer singled twice Sunday in the Twins' 5-1 victory at Oakland moving him 224th place on the all-time list with 2,112 hits and reached base for the 3,072nd time in his career, moving him into a tie with Harmon Killebrew for first place in franchise history.
