The Minnesota Twins will be without their All-Star catcher this weekend as he and his wife, Maddie, welcomed twin baby girls on Tuesday.

Under the MLB rules Mauer is allowed three days of paternity leave, which he ran out of yesterday after missing games Tuesday-Friday, but to provide extra time the Twins have placed Mauer on the restricted list. The restricted list allows the team to carry a full 25-man roster while Mauer is spending a bit more time with his family.

Mauer is expected to miss the entire weekend series against the Seattle Mariners and return to the team on Tuesday.
