Cardinals' Matt Wieters: Officially wins backup job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mike Shildt announced Friday that Wieters will be added to the 40-man roster and will serve as the Cardinals' backup catcher, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports.

Wieters joined St. Louis on a minor-league deal in late February and figured to open the season as Yadier Molina's backup, but nothing was official until Friday. The 32-year-old provides a more significant backup presence than the Cardinals have had in previous years, but Molina's workload and Wieters' .230/.303/.355 slash line over the past two seasons should result in limited fantasy value.

Cardinals' Matt Wieters: Latches on with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters agreed to a minor-league contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The deal is expected to be officially announced Wednesday. Following the offseason departure of Carson Kelly, Wieters figures to step in as the new favorite to open the season as the Cardinals' backup catcher. He could ultimately open the season in a starting role if Yadier Molina (knee) isn't ready to go by Opening Day. Either way, the 32-year-old doesn't figure to hold much fantasy value in 2019 given his combined .230/.303/.355 slash line over the past two seasons (199 games).
