Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that Joe Mauer has been placed on trade waivers.

What does this mean for the Minnesota golden boy? It means he is available to be traded for the right deal but would have to pass through waivers before the deal could be done. After a team makes a claim they would have two days to work out a deal. If no deal is made he will remain with the Twins.

Mauer also has a full no-trade clause in his contract. If a deal is made, Mauer would have to approve the trade.
