Orioles catcher Matt Wieters catching every other day
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters is still working his way through a rehab assignment, but will only be behind the plate every other day, according to MLB.com.

Wieters is building back his stamina before he catches on consecutive days. 

"And it's going to be a slow process. I've sort of come to terms with that, it's not going to be going back to catching four, five days in a row," Wieters said. "It's how I feel. The every other [day] feels good now and as soon as that little soreness that we have in between is gone, we will start by picking up a ball the day after I catch and go from there. Every other day is better than not playing at all for me right now."

Wieters was able to catch a full game on Tuesday for Double-A Bowie and will catch Thursday and Saturday.

"I'm ready to go," he said. "Yesterday, I was able to get a little bit of a heartbeat going playing under the lights at Bowie. I've been waiting for almost a year now to get back out there."

Orioles C Matt Wieters on return: 'I feel pretty good to play'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters, who has been sidelined since last May after undergoing Tommy John surgery, considers a June 4 return to the team realistic. That is his first day of eligibility to come off the disabled list.

"I feel pretty good to play," he told masnsports.com. "The last few games I've gone out there and played, the feelings of being able to get back in a big league game are there. It's not quite back to where it was yet, but it feels good enough to get back playing at this level."

Wieters added that his arm strength is getting better daily.

He is set to begin his rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie on Tuesday.
