Joe Mauer was scratched from Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels after getting word his wife had gone into labor back in Minnesota. 

Joe and Maddie are expecting twins. Of course. 

Oswaldo Arcia was taken out of the lineup for Rochester around the same time, so it's possible he could replace Mauer on the roster while he's away. 

Arcia has two home runs and three doubles in four games since his demotion.
