Nationals' Matt Wieters: Collects first two spring hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

The hits were his first of the spring in nine at-bats. Houston also challenged his arm on the basepaths and Wieters mostly rose to the challenge, throwing out two of four would-be thieves. With 15 games left on the Nats' spring training schedule, expect the 30-year-old catcher to see plenty of action in an effort to shake off any lingering rust resulting from his late signing.

Nationals' Matt Wieters: Will be behind plate again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters will get the start in the Nationals' next two spring games Monday and Wednesday before joining the team's regular rotation behind the plate, The Washington Post reports.

He went 0-for-2 in his Nats debut Sunday, but Joe Ross also had a strong outing throwing to Wieters, which is more encouraging. The former Oriole will provide a target for Stephen Strasburg on Monday, and has plenty of time left in the spring to get familiar with the team's entire pitching staff before assuming regular starting duties Opening Day.

Nationals' Matt Wieters: Making spring debut Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters will catch in his first spring game for the Nationals on Sunday, according to manager Dusty Baker, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

The organization and fantasy players will get their first look at the recent free-agent pickup, who has shown no ill effects from his offseason forearm injury. The switch-hitting backstop's price in fantasy baseball drafts could climb with a decent exhibition performance, given the uncertainty surrounding the middle and lower portions of the position pool.

Nationals' Matt Wieters: Expected to debut before Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dusty Baker says he expects Wieters to make his Grapefruit League debut before next Tuesday's off day, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Washington has five spring training games before Tuesday, any of which could serve as an ample debut opportunity. The big offseason acquisition for the Nationals has been limited to catching bullpen sessions thus far, including Max Scherzer's session Tuesday, but there's still plenty of time before Opening Day begins for him to get into game shape. Look for Wieters to see time behind the plate soon.

Nationals' Matt Wieters: To make debut soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters will make his Grapefruit League debut in a couple of days as he tries to catch up to game shape, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

The backstop's late signing with Washington delayed his schedule, though he still has plenty of time to ready himself for the 2017 season, thanks to the prolonged spring training schedule in a World Baseball Classic year. Despite Wieters' 2016 woes, the Nationals and fantasy players alike may find a nice return on a cheap investment.
