Duquette optimistic Orioles C Wieters will return by opener
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/8/14) Orioles general manager Dan Duquette said there is a "good chance" that catcher Matt Wieters will return by opening day after having undergone Tommy John surgery in May, per the Baltimore Sun.
Wieters was off to a hot start in 2014, compiling a .308/.339/.500 slash line in 104 at-bats before going down.

|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(11/12/14) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado and catcher Matt Wieters are progressing well from their injuries, according to MLB Network Radio.
Manager Buck Showalter said he expects both players to be fully healed by next season, but added that the club will prepare as though neither player will be around. Machado had knee surgery in August. Wieters is coming off June Tommy John surgery.
Matt Weiters optimistic about 2015
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/8/14) Orioles catcher Matt Wieters is making progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery in June, which already has him thinking about next season, according to MLB.com.
"It seems like about every week or two weeks we'll get a good breakthrough with something and move forward," Wieters said. "Then we'll have another week or two of trying to get to that next phase or feeling where we're trying to get it back to feeling as normal as possible as quick as possible."
Wieters doesn't yet know about his availability for spring training, but manager Buck Showalter said trainer Richie Bancells was "upbeat" about the catcher's range of motion.
Orioles make some roster moves Wednesday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/13/14) The Orioles announced Wednesday they selected the contract of infielder Cord Phelps from Triple-A Norfolk. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, catcher Matt Wieters (elbow) was moved to the 60-day disabled list.
|2014 summary: Matt Wieters gave Fantasy owners and the Orioles five good weeks to start the season, but that was all there was, as his season ended in mid-May with an elbow injury that ultimately required Tommy John surgery. Though his sixth season was a short one, Wieters' stat line was an impressive one for just 26 games: a .308 batting average with five home runs, 18 RBI and 13 runs. The sample of 112 plate appearances is too small for drawing conclusions, but Wieters appeared to be taking a more aggressive approach, with a higher swing rate and shorter plate appearances that resulted in a higher flyball rate.|
Playing time status: Wieters may be ready for spring training, but the timing of his return is uncertain.
2015 outlook: Had Wieters kept his pace for the remainder of the season, he would have been among the most valuable catchers in Fantasy. Now with the prospect of a late start and an extended recovery period, it's risky to count on Wieters to pick up where he left off. Though the 28-year-old just might have a breakout season in store, it's best to wait until the middle rounds to take a chance on him.
