Minnesota Twins first baseman Joe Mauer has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique, the team announced on Wednesday.

Mauer left the Twins' win against the Royals on Tuesday night after injuring the muscle hitting a two-run double in the fourth inning. After the game, the former MVP said he had been fighting stiffness in the area for the last week, according to Derek Whitmore of ESPN 1500.

The team recalled first baseman/outfielder Chris Colabello from Triple-A Rochester to fill out the roster in Mauer's absence.

Mauer has hit .271/.342/.353 with 28 RBIs for 38-44 Minnesota this season.

Colabello returns for his second stint with the Twins this season after hitting .275 with six home runs and 27 RBIs in 36 games for the Triple-A Red Wings. He hit .232 with four home runs and 32 RBIs in 40 games with the Twins after starting the season on the big-league roster.
