July 29, 2013 Updated Jul 29, 2013 at 5:46 PM CDT

Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Twins have reinstated catcher Joe Mauer from the restricted list, that coming Monday after Mauer left the team on July 23 to be with his wife, Sarah, when she gave birth to the couple's twin daughters.

Mauer missed six games while taking time to be with his family, with the Twins going (3-3) in that span. The team is idle Monday, but Mauer is expected to be in the lineup on Tuesday when Minnesota opens a three-game home series against Kansas City.

The 2012 All-Star is hitting .324 this season with 34 runs batted in, having played in 92 of 102 games for Minnesota this year.
