Nationals' Matt Wieters: Out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters is not in the lineup against the Angels on Wednesday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Wieters will retreat to the bench after starting the past two games behind the plate. The veteran catcher has been scuffling as of late, hitting just .170/.245/.255 over the past 15 games. In his place, Jose Lobaton draws the start while batting eighth in the order.

Nationals' Matt Wieters: Launches grand slam Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters went 1-for-3 with a homer and five RBI in Sunday's 9-4 win over the Cubs.

Wieters hit a sac fly in the seventh inning then broke a 4-4 tie with a grand slam in the eighth. The former Orioles catcher has had a largely disappointing first season in Washington, and the homer was his first since June 28. Wieters' .382 slugging percentage is his lowest since 2010 while his .294 OBP hasn't been worse since 2013.

Wieters is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

Wieters is hitless in his past three starts, so he'll get a night off to clear his head. Jose Lobaton will slide behind the plate to replace him for the evening.
