Wieters is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

The Orioles are still being a bit cautious with Wieters' workload, and he's yet to catch on consecutive days. Owners have to be disappointed that he isn't even DHing, as the Rangers are tossing left-handed Wandy Rodriguez, and Wieters owns an .824 career OPS against southpaws.

Wieters is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

Wieters has been alternating at the catcher position with Caleb Joseph since June 9, so the question will be when he feels healthy enough to become more of an everyday player. Until then, it's reasonable to expect decent production during his starts in daily leagues.

He hit a three-run blast in Monday's win over the Phillies, giving him a .333 batting average, two home runs, seven RBI and six runs in 27 at-bats.
