Wieters (undisclosed) is starting at catcher and batting seventh Thursday against the Phillies, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters was a little banged up earlier in the week, but he's good to go after getting the past two games off. The 31-year-old Wieters, who earned his fourth All-Star selection in 2016, has turned in a disappointing .235/.291/.356 line with just nine homers in 108 games this season. He'll face Aaron Nola in his return to the lineup.

Wieters is banged up and will get Tuesday and Wednesday off, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

He has dealt with back and knee ailments lately, and with no team threatening to run them down in the National League East, the Nationals can afford to give Wieters a couple days to try to get healthy. Even when fully healthy, Wieters has struggled to produce this year, and in one-catcher leagues, he can probably be cut loose. Pedro Severino is starting behind the dish and hitting eighth Tuesday.

Wieters is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

He has recently been nursing back and knee ailments, but this sounds like a standard off day. Wieters is having his worst year ever at the dish, hitting .235/.291/.356 with nine home runs in 409 plate appearances. He is a No. 1 catcher in name and contract only. Pedro Severino will start behind the dish and hit eighth.

Wieters (back) is starting at catcher and batting eighth Monday against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wieters is good to go after missing three consecutive games with back tightness and a bruised knee. The 31-year-old, who is slashing .238/.294/.359 through 107 games in his first year with the Nationals, will face Adam Conley in his return to the lineup.

Wieters, who is out of the lineup Sunday against the Brewers, is dealing with back tightness and a bruised knee, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday marks the third straight game Wieters will be held out of the starting lineup, as Jose Lobaton has been filling in behind the plate. We now have a reason for Wieters' absence, but on the bright side, he does expect to start at catcher when the Nationals head to Miami to begin a three-game series Monday.
