Matt Wieters: Accepts qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matt Wieters accepted the Orioles' qualifying offer on Friday, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

This is something of a surprise, given how few players accept qualifying offers, but Wieters is a unique case. After an injury plagued 2015, he has a chance to re-establish his value on a one year deal with Baltimore, before potentially cashing in next offseason. He has 20-plus homer potential in 2016, and his .258 career batting average is pretty good estimation of what he'll post next year. Wieters should also hit in an advantageous spot in the Orioles' lineup after the presumed departure of Chris Davis in free agency.

Matt Wieters: Given qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matt Wieters was given a qualifying offer by the Orioles on Friday.

Recovering from Tommy John surgery, Wieters' campaign didn't get underway until June, and he was limited to just 55 games behind the plate as a result. He still put up solid numbers at the plate, slashing .267/.319/.422 with eight home runs in just 75 games, but his ability to return as a full-time catcher in 2016 could impact any potential offers.

Orioles C Matt Wieters not starting on Friday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters is out of the lineup Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com reports.

Wieters will once again split time with Caleb Joseph, as the two catchers have split starts behind the plate as of late. Wieters has went 6-for-28 in the month of September and has knocked in just one run during that span.
