MINNEAPOLIS -- Joe Mauer will move from catcher to first base on a full-time basis for the Minnesota Twins, hoping to avoid a repeat of the concussion that cut short his 2013 season. Jose Reyes Jersey . The Twins announced the switch on Monday for the 30-year-old Mauer, who missed the last six weeks of the schedule recovering from his head injury. He took a foul tip off the mask on Aug. 19. During a conference call with reporters, Mauer said hes feeling fine and symptom-free, having begun his off-season workouts. The sensitivity to light and noise, irritable moods and headaches lingered into October, however, prompting him to seek medical advice from Mayo Clinic doctors and team physicians about the prospect of continuing to play behind the plate. "When I kept gathering information, to be honest with you, it wasnt really even a decision," said Mauer, who is signed through 2018 with $115 million remaining on his contract. "I kept searching to see if it was going to be OK, if it was going to be safe for me to go back there and catch, and I just wasnt finding that." He added: "All it could take is one foul tip in pitchers batting practice, and Im out for two or three months or even more." Twins general manager Terry Ryan said the organization wouldve supported whatever Mauer decided was best, even if he felt he could keep playing the position with the most inherent injury risk of anywhere on the field. "Im happy that hes chosen to make the transition, but had he decided that he wanted to catch Im not sure that anybody was going to stand in his way," Ryan said. Ryan, who traded Mauers close friend, first baseman Justin Morneau, a couple of weeks after Mauer was hurt, acknowledged this move makes the potential pursuit of Morneau in free agency improbable. Mauer won the Silver Slugger award for American League catchers this year after batting .324 with 11 home runs and 47 RBIs in 113 games. Taken by the Twins, his hometown team, with the first pick in the 2001 draft and given the job as a 20-year-old to start the 2004 season, Mauer has been the catcher in 920 games. "I really enjoy going out there and competing, and Im thankful still be able to do that. ... But its frustrating it had to end sooner than I anticipated," he said. Mauer has three Gold Gloves, three batting titles, six All-Star game selections and the 2009 AL MVP award as a catcher. Can he amass similar accolades at a position crowded with top hitters is to be seen. As for the effect on the value of his $23 million annual salary, his rotisserie league worth or his Hall of Fame credentials, well, Mauer predictably said hes not worried about any of that. First theres his family, including wife Maddie and twin infant girls Emily and Maren. Then theres the Twins, who are better off with a healthy Mauer at first base than with an injured Mauer at catcher. The men behind the mask took quite a beating around the majors this season, with Detroits Alex Avila, Oaklands John Jaso and Kansas Citys Salvador Perez all missing time due to concussions. "I had one when I was younger, but I probably had several that went undiagnosed. Youre just kind of wired to play through it," Mauer said. Mauer said he sustained "two significant blows" to his head that mid-August afternoon, a makeup game against the New York Mets from April rendered meaningless with both teams buried in the playoff race. With problems with his back and legs behind him, Mauer had been feeling as fit and strong as ever the last two years. "We wouldnt be having this conversation if I didnt have that concussion," he said. Former Twins catcher A.J. Pierzynski is among the veteran free agents available this winter, but Ryan said his priority is starting pitching. Josmil Pinto showed some potential after Mauer was out, and Ryan Doumit has plenty of experience. Other options are Chris Herrmann and Eric Fryer. Mauer has played 56 games at first base in his career, committing four errors in 536 chances for a sparkling .993 fielding percentage. The natural athleticism that made him a standout point guard and quarterback in high school serves him well anywhere on the baseball field, and he ought to be able to pick up defensively where Morneau left off. Where Mauer cant match Morneau is with raw power, long widely considered the most important asset at first base, but Mauer has a career .873 on-base-plus-slugging percentage, 20th among all active players regardless of position. With increased availability and fresher legs, he could easily recalibrate his annual average of roughly 10 home runs. Mauer spoke with Morneau shortly before he addressed the media. "He was a catcher way back in the day, and he said, Youre going to be amazed at how much better you feel," Mauer said. "Im looking forward to that." Carlos Gonzalez Rockies Jersey . Head coach Lindy Ruff confirmed on Sunday that his starting goalie has a head injury and the team will take it day by day. DJ LeMahieu Rockies Jersey . - Pierre-Maxime Poudrier scored twice and added an assist, and Antoine Bibeau made 43 saves as the Val-dOr Foreur downed the Baie-Comeau Drakkar 6-3 on Sunday to force Game 7 in their Quebec Major Junior Hockey League final series. http://www.baseballrockiesproshop.com/jorge-de-la-rosa-rockies-jersey/ . Hes even holding a bat on one of his 2014 baseball cards. So far, hes playing like his picture.FALL RIVER, Mass. -- A judge on Tuesday granted a request by former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez to suppress evidence from two cellphones and three iPads taken from his home in a search during a 2013 murder investigation. Bristol Superior Court Judge E. Susan Garsh ruled that police were not entitled to take those items because they didnt specifically list them in a search warrant for Hernandezs North Attleborough home on June 18, 2013. The items were seized during an investigation into the killing of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandezs fiancee. Hernandez is charged with murder in the fatal shooting of Lloyd, whose body was found in an industrial park about a half-mile from Hernandezs home. Hernandez, who grew up in Bristol, Connecticut, is charged separately in the killings of two men in Boston in 2012 after a brief encounter at a nightclub. He has pleaded not guilty in both cases. Prosecutors had argued that tthe warrant authorized the seizure of any global positioning system devices, but the judge disagreed. Colorado Rockies Jersey. "The police operated under the misimpression that the search warrant authorized the seizure of GPS devices when they seized the cellphones and tablets from Hernandezs residence," the judge wrote in her ruling. Prosecutors declined to comment on the judges ruling, citing a gag order issued by her in the case. Hernandezs lawyers did not immediately respond to requests seeking comment. Last month, the judge rejected a request from Hernandezs lawyers to suppress evidence from another cellphone and video surveillance cameras at Hernandezs home. Prosecutors have said the cameras, which were part of Hernandezs home security system, show him holding a gun after Lloyd was shot in the industrial park. They said the video also shows Hernandez with Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, who are charged along with him in Lloyds killing and have pleaded not guilty.
