Matt Wieters is out of the Orioles' lineup on Tuesday night due to right forearm soreness.

Matt Wieters went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored on Monday to raise his average to .366.

Is Wieters just teasing us again or is he finally ready to start fulfilling the offensive potential it looked like he had a few years back? Since hitting .288 as a rookie in 2009, he's come in at .249, .262, .249 and .235 the last four seasons. It'd be easier to buy in if he hadn't also gotten off to hot starts in 2011 and 2012 before letting his owners down.

Matt Wieters is not in the Orioles starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

Nothing more than a regular day of rest for Wieters. Steve Clevenger will get the start behind the dish and hit fifth for the Orioles.

Matt Wieters went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the Orioles' loss to the Yankees on Monday.

Matt Wieters went 3-for-4 with an RBI double against the Red Sox on Thursday.

Wieters is off to a nice 5-for-11 start, though he has fanned four times already. We'd like him a little more this season if he weren't going to bat behind Nelson Cruz and, most likely, J.J. Hardy after Manny Machado returns. He's not going to get a lot of RBI opportunities batting after those two.

Matt Wieters hit a three-run homer Saturday as the Orioles beat the Triple-A Norfolk affiliate 4-3 in a rain-shortened game Saturday.

Wieters went without a homer in 32 official spring at-bats. Last year, he hit .378 with five homers in 45 at-bats in the spring, then followed that with his a disappointing campaign. We liked him a little better for this year before the Orioles signed Nelson Cruz. Prior to that, it appeared he'd hit fifth. Now he could hit seventh below two lesser OBP guys (Cruz and J.J. Hardy) most of the time.

Matt Wieters (ankle) was able to take some swings in batting practice on Friday and is still expected to return to the Orioles lineup on Monday.

He indicated afterwards that his ankle is still stiff, and that there's no need to rush back during spring training and risk re-injury. It still appears as though he'll be ready for Opening Day.

The Orioles are likely to hold Matt Wieters (ankle) out of the lineup until Monday.

Wieters had been expected to return to action on Saturday, but his right ankle is still a little swollen and the O's don't want to push it. Assuming he can avoid setbacks, it's not something that's going to threaten his availability for Opening Day.
