Orioles' Matt Wieters still not ready to catch on consecutive days
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday catcher Matt Wieters is still not ready to catch on consecutive days.

"It's not if, I think it's when, and that's going to be totally up to Matt and John Russell and the trainers," Showalter said, per MASNsports.com. "It's not something I walk up to him every day and say, 'Hey, is today the day? Is today the day?' I'm not going to do that to him. I'm not going to jeopardize him being here every other day by pushing the envelope on it. But I know he's playing some catch now between outings, so to speak.

"When he first got here, he'd catch and take the next day off, even though he's available. We wouldn't have brought him here if we felt like we couldn't use him in a game the day after, but he is now doing some things on the day he's not catching that he wasn't doing when he first got here, so I think it will happen at some point. When it is, I don't know, and we're fortunate to have Caleb (Joseph) and some other catchers down below that we feel good about the depth.

"We'll take it the way it is, and if it's this way the rest of the year, so be it. I think at some point he'll feel comfortable doing it. I try to stay out of that. I don't want him to think that I'm putting that pressure on him, and I'm not. We'll take him any way we can get him."

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters parks two-run HR in Thursday's win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters hit a two-run homer off Eduardo Rodriguez during a six-run fourth inning Thursday, and the Orioles beat the Red Sox, 8-6. Wieters finished 2 for 5 with one strikeout.

Wieters has homered three times in 15 games since coming off the disabled list in early June. Wieters, who entered play Thursday mired in a 1-for-12 slump in his last four games, has five multihit games.

Orioles C Matt Wieters gets a day off on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

After catching two consecutive games for the first time all year, Orioles catcher Matt Wieters is being held out of the lineup on Wednesday against the Red Sox. Wieters, who missed the first part of the season recovering from elbow surgery, caught Sunday and Tuesday's games, marking the first time he had been behind the plate in back-to-back contests.

But it seems manager Buck Showalter is not ready for him to be back there for three straight, so Caleb Joseph will draw the start on Wednesday.

Orioles in no rush to have Matt Wieters catch on back-to-back days
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Orioles manager Buck Showalter doesn't appear to be in a rush to have Matt Wieters start back-to-back days at catcher.

"We're excited about having him back every other day," Showalter said, per MASNsports.com. "He's still a tad ahead of schedule from what that normally is and we're not going to push that.

"I'm not going to put a firm date on it. I don't know if I'll ever ask him about him. John (Russell) and him talk all the time. He'll let us know. He's made real good decisions concerning this every time. He knows how much he means to us. He also knows what it would mean if he wasn't and he pushed too quickly with it.

"Will there come a time? Yeah, I think there will. When? I've got in the back of my head when I think it'll be, but nothing imminent."
