Orioles | Matt Wieters hitless in return

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 22:46:05 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (foot) returned to the lineup Monday, July 25, against the Colorado Rockies after missing six games. He was hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Give Wieters at least one more game to shake off the rust and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks before trusting him in fantasy again.

Orioles | Matt Wieters back in the lineup

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:07:59 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (knee) is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters hasn't registered an extra-base hit in July and owns a disastrous .319 OPS. In single-catcher leagues, you need better production than that. Wieters has plenty of upside, but he isn't a must-own backstop at this point, either.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy, Matt Wieters out Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:20:40 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy and C Matt Wieters (foot) remain out of the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Sunday, July 24. INF Ryan Flaherty will bat seventh and play shortstop and C Caleb Joseph will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, OF Julio Borbon is back in left field and will hit ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Flaherty is 5-for-11 versus Kluber in his career, while Joseph is 7-for-19 over the past week following a slow start at the plate this year. Both players are worth considering as inexpensive fliers in daily fantasy games.

Orioles | Matt Wieters could return Monday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 20:11:24 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (foot) could return Monday, July 25, manager Buck Showalter said.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters was slumping prior to the injury, but he is worth waiting on in deeper mixed and AL-only formats.

Orioles | Matt Wieters could catch in a pinch

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:01:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (foot) could catch if needed Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: This should line Wieters up to return soon. He's struggling to string together a solid run and sits with a mediocre 25 runs, nine home runs, 38 RBI and a .250/.306/.403 slash line. There's upside, but currently, Wieters isn't a must-start backstop in single-catcher leagues.

Orioles | Still no Matt Wieters

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:58:43 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (foot) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters hasn't played since Monday, July 18, and he's struggled of late with a 1-for-23 run at the plate through his past eight games. Wieters isn't a must-own backstop in single-catcher formats. Joseph owns a .170/.223/.193 slash line this season and offers no fantasy upside in his current form.

Orioles | Two O's out Thursday

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 08:37:06 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (back) and C Matt Wieters (foot) are out of the lineup Thursday, July 21. C Caleb Joseph and OF Julio Borbon are hitting eighth and ninth, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Joseph, nor Borbon, offer much to love for a basement play against CC Sabathia.

Orioles | Matt Wieters still out with foot injury

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 14:09:51 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (foot) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters was struggling before the injury with a 1-for-23 run at the plate over eight games. He's barely hanging onto viability as a starting catcher in mixed leagues and is likely best left to cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues at this point. Joseph isn't on the fantasy radar at this point considering his .160/.218/.185 slash line.
