(AP) Minnesota Twins star Joe Mauer has not considered sitting out the rest of the season to let his concussion heal.


Mauer said Thursday he's feeling better, 10 days after he got hit in the facemask with a foul tip behind the plate. But the six-time All-Star acknowledged he's not concerned about catching again this year, just simply returning to the field sometime in September.


Mauer has been taking part in light exercises but is still bothered by light and sound. He won't travel on the team's road trip to Texas this weekend. So the earliest he'd be back in the lineup is likely Sept. 6, when the next homestand starts.


With the Twins out of playoff contention, there's no real rush.
