Matt Wieters: Has garnered interest from Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays have offered Wieters a contract, though it's likely for only one year and much less money than the catcher desires, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Wieters remains unsigned for many reasons. Questions probably still exist about his health, though he and agent Scott Boras said he's fine. His poor pitch framing has probably made him less desirable, but Boras has been trying to poke holes in that narrative. Tampa Bay could use Wieters' offensive upside, which remains realistic, though maybe not at the lofty levels he enjoyed as a prospect and young player. Still, the Rays are a logical suitor: Wieters would slot in at catcher and designated hitter. He could remain in the lineup even after Wilson Ramos (knee) returns, and that timetable remains up in the air. Assuming Wieters' health checks out and he lands a deal before the season starts, fantasy players could find a bargain if his price keeps sinking.

Matt Wieters: Feeling no ill effects from offseason injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters' agent Scott Boras said the catcher didn't suffer nerve damage and has participated in baseball activities following his November accident at home that resulted in a lacerated left forearm, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

That can likely be ruled out as a reason why Wieters hasn't found a team yet, and it's a positive to hear he's physically up to par. Still, fantasy players can't peg him with a proper value until he lands with a new club.

Matt Wieters: Not in touch with Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles haven't participated in any recent discussions with Wieters' agent Scott Boras, according to MASNSports' Roch Kubatko.

Baltimore appears to be happy with their catcher picture. Welington Castillo enters as the starter, with Caleb Joseph or Francisco Pena backing him up, while top prospect Chance Sisco likely sits at Triple-A Norfolk waiting to arrive sometime this year. Wieters likely will find a home in the coming weeks -- perhaps the Angels -- but valuing him for fantasy drafts is a head-scratching chore while he's still a free agent.

Matt Wieters: Potentially Tampa-bound?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays are still in pursuit of one more hitter before camp opens, and Wieters (forearm) is among those they might be looking at, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The report doesn't quote anyone from the Rays, but presumably Marc Tompkins, the author of the article, has been in touch with the team on background. The Rays signed Wilson Ramos as a free agent this offseason, but he won't be ready to return from his knee injury until midseason, so an opening for Wieters remains on a one-year deal.

Matt Wieters: Cuts left forearm in household accident
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wieters cut his left forearm earlier in the offseason and received stitches, but the issue is not expected to affect his ability to play next season, Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

Thankfully, the free agent incurred the minor laceration on his non-throwing arm, which should help him maintain his stock as one of the top catchers on the market this offseason. Wieters is expected to resume baseball activities in January and be 100 percent by the time spring training rolls around.
