Orioles' Matt Wieters set for 'catcher movement' drills Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will get behind the plate Monday to take part in "catcher movement" drills, which involve quickly throwing to each base, MLB.com reports.

"It's got to be a little more reactive and instinctual, which is what we're going to try to accomplish with this," Wieters said. "We'll go by feel. I got into -- a little bit earlier in the rehab -- where I wanted to test it, test it, test it, then you end up pushing it too far and you can set yourself back. It's a matter of just going by feel and getting as much out of it as we can without feeling like we're fatiguing and risking injury."

Wieters caught two innings in Sunday's intrasquad game, marking his first time catching a game since undergoing Tommy John surgery. "It's definitely nice to get back there, but as far as feeling like I was rusty or anything like that, I really didn't. It felt kind of normal back there being a catcher," Wieters said.

The catcher is expected to make his Grapefruit League debut in Tuesday's home opener as the team's designated hitter.

Orioles' Matt Wieters to catch intrasquad game Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will be behind the plate in a game situation for the first time since May when he starts Sunday's intrasquad game, the Baltimore Sun reports.

"This is a day I've been waiting for about nine months now," Wieters said. "It's what I enjoy doing and even though it won't be full catching and throwing and doing everything full, it's still nice to get behind the plate and be able to get work in as a catcher at least."

Wieters, who had elbow ligament reconstruction surgery last June, is scheduled to catch two innings Sunday. He won't throw at 100 percent until March 17 but will continue to work in simulatd scenarios behind the plate in order to allow him to catch five-to-seven innings when he's ready for Grapefruit League games.
