If MCB did a list of hottest hitters over the last week, Mauer would definitely be on that list as he is hitting .423 with five extra-base hits, eight RBI, and five runs in his last six games.

The hot streak has raised his average to .318 on the season and 13 RBI. He leads the Minnesota Twins in both categories.

The problem, however, is none of those extra-base hits this week were home runs, and Mauer is still searching for his first round-tripper in 2015.

If Mauer still has eligible at catcher in one’s fantasy league, then he is a fine start for batting average, on-base percentage and RBI, but owners starting him at first base would like to see a lot more home runs.
