In his first season back from Tommy John surgery, the veteran catcher is hitting .251/.292/.397 with seven home runs and 21 RBI.

Wieters has missed a few games this month with a sore wrist and is sitting out Monday versus southpaw Gio Gonzalez. He'll start the next two nights with the Nationals starting righties, but it sounds like he could be on the bench regularly over the next two weeks when the opposition goes with a lefty.

Wieters returned to action Tuesday after missing three games with soreness in the wrist. He's sitting out again on Friday, but the Orioles hope he'll be back in there Saturday.
