Wieters is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Francisco Pena will draw in behind the plate Friday while Wieters gets his first day off since Sunday. Wieters is batting just .208 since the All-Star break, but he's picked things up at the dish over the last two weeks by compiling a .325/.372/.550 slash line in his last 40 at-bats.

Wieters went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Wednesday's win over the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters' season-high four RBI performance pushed his total up to 51 for the year, good for fifth-best among AL catchers. The 30-year-old is enjoying his first healthy season since 2013, but his overall numbers are down a bit from his career averages. Wieters has also struggled since the All-Star break, posting a .214 average after hitting .258 during the first half of 2016, and it's fair to assume the workload is catching up to him as the end of the season draws near.

Wieters went 2-for-4 with a double, a run and two RBI in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters followed up a second-inning RBI double with a run-scoring single in the seventh. The catcher had driven in just three runs in his previous 15 games, so this was a much-needed offensive breakout. Don't expect things to pick up much going forward, though, as Wieters is on pace to finish with a slugging percentage below .400 for the first time since 2010.

Wieters has been activated from the paternity list and is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters was away from the team the last two days after landing on the paternity list, but he has returned with the team and will immediately jump back into the lineup Monday night. Wieters will hit seventh against Nationals starter A.J. Cole.

Wieters (personal) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters was placed on the paternity list Saturday, so he was highly unlikely to make such a quick return for Sunday's afternoon contest. While the Orioles won't have the switch-hitting bat against Dallas Keuchel and the Astros, the team expects him to return when they begin a four-game set against the Nationals on Monday.

Wieters (personal) is expected to remain out Sunday against the Astros while on paternity leave, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters was placed on the paternity list earlier Saturday, which dictates that he must miss between one and three games. At this point, the expectation is that he'll sit out Saturday and Sunday before returning to action Monday as the O's begin a four-game set against the Nationals in Baltimore.

Wieters was placed on the paternity list Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The Orioles brought up catcher Francisco Pena from Triple-A Norfolk to take Wieters' roster spot while he's away from the team. Per MLB rules, Wieters will miss between 1-and-3 games while he's on the paternity list. Once he returns, Pena figures to be sent back to Norfolk.

Wieters is likely to land on the paternity list within the next handful of days, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters' wife is expected to give birth sometime in the next few days, but at this point it's unclear when, exactly, Wieters will be away from the team. Per manager Buck Showalter, the Orioles are anticipating placing Wieters on the paternity list sometime between Saturday and Tuesday. As such, Wieters, who is in Thursday's lineup at catcher, should be available Friday but should be considered day-to-day beginning Saturday.

Wieters went 1-for-4 with a single and two RBI Tuesday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The dormant Orioles offense woke up briefly with a three-run seventh inning thanks in large part to Wieters' bases-loaded two-run single off Fernando Abad. He has been extremely opportunistic this season, driving in 20 more runs in only 13 more games than last year despite a drop-off in both average and slugging percentage.

Wieters went 5-for-5 with a triple, a double and a pair of runs scored in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters received a day off Saturday after collecting just two hits in his previous 21 at-bats, and it seemed to do him some good, as he notched five hits for the first time in his eight-year big league career. Wieters' average climbed 13 points to .245 with Sunday's effort, and he will look to use this momentum to break out of his recent slump.
