MINNEAPOLIS - American League MVP Joe Mauer on Tuesday denied a Yahoo! Sports report that said Mauer had set a deadline of opening day for contract negotiations with the Minnesota Twins. Mauer can become a free agent after next season.

Mauer texted the Twins' Web site and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune to respond to the report. He told the Star-Tribune, "(T)hat's news to me." He told the team's Web site: "I'm not going to react to every story/rumor that comes out or comment on any negotiations. As far as that report, I don't know where that came from."

Last week, at a press conference announcing his MVP award, Mauer said he didn't need to get a deal done by a certain time. The Twins reportedly would like to complete a deal with Mauer by Christmas.
