Morosi: Twins troubles

Minneapolis Minnesota. Fox Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal reports a source close to the team has information that Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer, 29, is on a trade waiver.

Mauer is a former Most Valuable Player and an All Star member will be owed $142.5 million in salary by the Twins. The Boston Red Sox are interested in getting Mauer to join their team.

A trade waiver means a team wants to trade a player to another team if the other team is willing to trade players to the waiver trade team.

The source told Rosenthal Mauer wanted an opt out clause in his contract negotiations in case the Twins were to get into a losing period but the Twins refused to honor his request.
