Matt Wieters (elbow) will catch 4-5 innings in an extended spring training game on Monday.
Wieters was behind the plate Friday as well. The 28-year-old is working his way back from Tommy John surgery. In addition to being one of the better defensive catchers in baseball, Wieters is an above average power hitter when healthy. Caleb Joseph will return to backup duty when Wieters returns sometime in May. Unless he signs an extension, Wieters will hit free agency this winter. Apr 25 - 4:26 PM
