EDGE Analysis

The veteran came through with a 388-foot shot to right to lead off the bottom of the ninth, tying the game at 2-2.

Following Friday's production, he's slashing .239/.297/.398 on the season, with 15 homers and 61 RBI.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran catcher is now has a pair of homers, seven RBI and eight runs in September. His slash line for the month (.265/.345/.500) is up from a rough August (.253/.286/.425). Overall, it has been a productive year for Wieters, who has missed a majority of the last two campaigns with injuries, and he should continue to contribute solid numbers through the end of 2016.

Wieters went 2-for-5 with two home runs, five RBIs, a walk and three runs in Saturday's win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters is having a productive week after reaching base five times Tuesday. He has missed just seven games in the second half, but he had only three home runs since the All-Star break prior to Saturday. Wieters should remain in an every day role as long as the Orioles are in contention for a playoff spot.

Wieters went 2-for-3 with two walks, a hit by pitch, and a run scored in an 11-2 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday's patience was a welcome sight for Wieters owners, who had seen him walk just 24 times prior to Tuesday. His inability to get on base is one reason Wieters has scored only 37 runs despite hitting in an Orioles lineup that leads the league in home runs. Wieters hasn't fared much better in the power department, hitting 12 home runs and slugging a measly .392 on the year.
