Nationals' Matt Wieters: Plays catch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters (hamstring) played catch Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Wieters is still weeks away from returning after undergoing hamstring surgery in mid-May, but this is a small step in the right direction for the backstop. He'll continue to ramp up his activity in the coming weeks before determining the next step in his rehab.

Nationals' Matt Wieters: Undergoes hamstring surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters underwent a procedure to repair his left hamstring Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

The team has not released any more information on the matter at this juncture besides releasing a brief statement that acknowledges the surgery and that Wieters will be further evaluated once he returns to the club's facility. Consider him out indefinitely while an update on his timetable should surface in the coming days. In his absence, Pedro Severino will continue to see a majority of time behind the plate.

Nationals' Matt Wieters: Heads to disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a left hamstring strain, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Wieters sustained the injury in Thursday's game while rounding first base and underwent an MRI on Friday morning. The severity of the injury remains unclear, leaving Pedro Severino to take over the starting duties at catcher for the time being, with Spencer Kieboom recalled from Triple-A to serve as backup.

Nationals' Matt Wieters: Held out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters is not in the lineup against Arizona on Friday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Wieters was removed from Thursday's contest after suffering a leg injury while rounding first base in the second inning. The catcher went in for an MRI on Friday morning, but the results of the test have yet to be announced. Consider him day-to-day until more information surfaces. In his place, Pedro Severino will catch Max Scherzer and bat seventh.

Nationals' Matt Wieters: Slated for MRI on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters, who exited Thursday's 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks with a left leg injury, will undergo an MRI on Friday, Jack Magruder of MLB.com reports.

Wieters suffered the injury as he was running past first base on a second-inning single. The catcher said he felt a twinge behind his left knee while running, suggesting that a hamstring injury could be in play. The Nationals will gain more clarity on the nature and extent of Wieters' setback Friday, but even if he's able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, the 31-year-old seems unlikely to be available for at least a day or two. Wieters' absence for any length of time would open up extra reps behind the plate for Pedro Severino.
