Matt Wieters: Cuts left forearm in household accident
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wieters cut his left forearm earlier in the offseason and received stitches, but the issue is not expected to affect his ability to play next season, Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

Thankfully, the free agent incurred the minor laceration on his non-throwing arm, which should help him maintain his stock as one of the top catchers on the market this offseason. Wieters is expected to resume baseball activities in January and be 100 percent by the time spring training rolls around.

Matt Wieters: Does not garner qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters is a free agent after the Orioles did not extend him a qualifying offer, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Wieters managed to stay healthy for the 2016 season, although his offensive numbers dipped. With this in mind, the Orioles thought that his acceptance was too big of a risk for them to take and instead will move on from the 30-year-old backstop. Wieters does hold 20-home run potential, though, and now that he won't cost a draft pick to be signed, he could garner a higher price on the free agent market.

Orioles' Matt Wieters: Swats two homers Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters went 2-for-4 with a pair of two-run homers in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

Wieters finished the season with 17 home runs, not bad considering he played in 124 games since his throwing arm needed routine rest in the first two months of the season. Wieters may not be back with the Orioles next season, but he figures to be behind the plate for all of Baltimore's postseason games.

Orioles' Matt Wieters: Contributes three hits in Friday win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wieters went 3-for-5 with a game-tying solo homer in Friday's 3-2 extra-inning victory over Arizona.

The veteran came through with a 388-foot shot to right to lead off the bottom of the ninth. The multihit performance was a welcome effort from Wieters after he'd gone hitless in his last six games. Following Friday's performance, he's slashing .239/.297/.398 with 15 homers and 61 RBI this season.

Orioles' Matt Wieters: Not in lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters is out of the lineup Thursday against Boston, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Wieters has started three consecutive games and gone 0-for-9 with three strikeouts in that time. He'll sit out against David Price and the Red Sox while Caleb Joseph starts behind the dish and hits ninth.
