Minnesota Twins first baseman Joe Mauer has gone on the 15-day disabled list after hurting his side in Tuesday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals.

The Twins said Mauer has a right oblique strain. He apparently suffered the injury when he doubled in the fourth inning, a hit that ran his hitting streak to 12 games.

Mauer had hit .320 with 13 RBIs in his last 19 games. The Twins called up Chris Colabello from Triple-A Rochester to take his place on the roster. Colabello was hitting .275 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 36 games with the Red Wings.
