Murphy: Mauer's Catching Time Limited in WBC
I found the whole tone of this story reassuring. Mauer seems to understand he doesn't need to try and play hero and catch a lot early:
"The WBC's a great event, a great opportunity. I'm excited for it. But I've got to get ready for my guys, too," he said. "I'll try to be as ready as I can. I won't be in midseason form or anything. I'll go out there and try to prepare myself as best I can knowing also April 1 is when we get going."

Mauer will probably DH as much as he catches. He'll get lots of ABs. Can't have one of your best hitters sitting out.
