C Matt Wieters (back) returns to Orioles lineup
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Catcher Matt Wieters is back behind the plate for the Orioles on Monday after missing Sunday's game with back stiffness. 

Wieters also was out of the lineup on Friday as Baltimore tries to limit the catcher's usage after missing most of the season with Tommy John surgery. He's hitting .234 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 33 games.

Orioles C Matt Wieters dealing with back issue
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Stiffness in his back kept Orioles outfielder Matt Wieters out of Sunday's lineup, reports MLB.com.

Wieters was going to be play first base Sunday, but his back began to stiffen during Saturday's contest. Wieters is hitting .222 with one double and two RBI in his last 10 games.

Catcher Matt Wieters could become first base option for Orioles
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Orioles have been working Matt Wieters out at first base in recent times. The veteran catcher has been seeing inconsistent playing time behind the plate, a year removed from Tommy John surgery. 

But if he is able to adjust to life at first base, it would give manager Buck Showalter another versatile option at his disposal down the stretch.

"It's something we've considered. Also keeps him in the game in case there's a problem with Caleb [Joseph] physically," Showalter said, per MLB.com. "Although I don't mind DH'ing him."

Entering play on Saturday, Wieters has played in 32 games since returning on June 5. But he has caught on back-to-back days just once this season. It is not known when--if at all--Wieters will appear at first base during a game.

Orioles' Matt Wieters catches back-to-back days
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters is making a rather significant step in his recent return from Tommy John surgery. Wieters is in the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Twins, making it the first time he has caught in back-to-back days since last season.

Wieters was activated from the disabled list in early June, but he had been starting every other day behind the plate. 

The former All-Star catcher is batting .254 with three home runs since returning from the DL.
