Orioles | Steve Clevenger hitting sixth

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:19:25 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Steve Clevenger is batting sixth as the designated hitter against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Monday, Aug. 31. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting eight, and C Matt Wieters is starting at first base and batting fifth Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Rarely do you see a team find room for three catchers in their starting lineup, but all three are risky FantasyScore plays Monday. Archer ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) is a tough draw, and with 13 games on the schedule, Wieters ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) might be the only lean of the trio. You should likely look elsewhere in daily contests.

Orioles | Matt Wieters returns to lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:10:42 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters will bat fifth and start behind the plate against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Sunday, Aug. 30. C Caleb Joseph, who caught Saturday, Aug. 29, will bat sixth and serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is just 3-for-18 over the past week and although he has homered twice in his career versus Holland, those are his only hits in 15 lifetime at-bats against the southpaw. Joseph ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) hasn't done much better over the last seven days, with a .200 mark in 20 at-bats. Better low-cost catching options are available today in FantasyScore.

Orioles | Matt Wieters out of the lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 15:20:45 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Saturday, Aug. 29. C Caleb Joseph will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Joseph ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .262 with four home runs and 15 RBI this month and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Orioles | Matt Wieters will not start

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 10:14:53 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Sunday, Aug. 23. C Caleb Joseph will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should play in the next game or two. Joseph ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .311 with four home runs and 13 RBI this month and could be a solid starting option.

Orioles | Matt Wieters taking day off

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 12:56:17 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate again and is hitting ninth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has more fantasy value than most backup catchers, as he has 11 home runs and 43 RBI this season while filling in for Wieters earlier this season. However, a matchup against young flamethrower Syndergaard isn't ideal tonight.

Orioles | Matt Wieters has two hits in return

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 21:42:10 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (hamstring) returned to the lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18, against the New York Mets and he finished with two hits and a run scored in four at-bats in his first action in a week.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is worth a look in FantasyScore again now that he is healthy. He made it through the game without any setbacks.

Orioles | Matt Wieters returns Tuesday

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 11:48:40 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (hamstring) is back in the lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Tuesday, Aug. 18. Wieters is hitting fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Wieters ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will avoid a trip to the DL. In his first start back after missing a handful of games, we'd suggest avoiding Wieters, especially while facing young stud deGrom.

Orioles | Matt Wieters expected back Tuesday

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:43:22 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (hamstring) ran the bases Monday, Aug. 17, and is expected to return to the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18, according to manager Buck Showalter.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to double-check Wieters' ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) lineup status before returning him to your own lineups Tuesday. With him healthy, Steve Clevenger's ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) fantasy value plummets again. Check back to ensure Wieters suits up Tuesday.

Orioles | Matt Wieters still out of the lineup

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:01:59 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 17. C Steve Clevenger is batting sixth as the designated hitter, and C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) sounds close to returning, but he could also land on the disabled list, if it is deemed he is unable to play. Check back for an update, as he is testing his hamstring Monday. Against Gray ($9,600, 19.2% of cap), Joseph ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Clevenger ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) are low-end catcher options at FanasyScore. Although, Clevenger presents significant cap relief and is hitting in a prime lineup spot.

Orioles | Matt Wieters could land on DL

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 16:36:18 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (hamstring) could be placed on the disabled list if his injury hasn't improved by Monday, Aug. 17, manager Buck Showalter said.

Fantasy Tip: While Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) remains sidelined, Caleb Joseph ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) should see a lot of action behind the plate and is worth considering as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore depending on the matchup.
