Cardinals' Matt Wieters: Clubs first homer as Cardinal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters went 1-for-2 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Phillies.

Wieters entered the game as a defensive replacement in the sixth inning with the Phillies up eight. He took advantage of the unexpected playing time, leading off the sixth inning with a deep home run to right field for his first of the season and as a Cardinal. Wieters has played sparingly early this season -- he has just 17 at-bats -- limiting his fantasy value, though he has recorded six hits and six RBI in the small sample.

Cardinals' Matt Wieters: Another productive start in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles in a win over the Brewers on Wednesday.

Wieters made good use of another spot start, generating his second multi-RBI outing of the season with a pair of timely hits. The veteran has actually logged just two starts thus far this season, as Yadier Molina is usually adverse to taking any time off behind the dish. Nevertheless, manager Mike Shildt will give Molina periodic days off, and any extra offense Wieters can provide during those opportunities will be a welcome bonus.

Cardinals' Matt Wieters: Impressive in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters went 1-for-3 with three RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Dodgers.

Wieters plated a run in the second inning on a sacrifice fly to left, and he brought home two more in the fifth on a single to right that gave his team an 8-7 lead. Yadier Molina is expected to start most games behind the dish, so unless he goes down with an injury, Wieters shouldn't be expected to see regular at-bats.

Cardinals' Matt Wieters: Gets first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters will start at catcher and hit eighth Thursday against the Dodgers, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

With ironman Yadier Molina finally getting a breather after starting each of the Cardinals' 12 games at catcher, Wieters will crack the lineup for the first time all season. Unless Molina succumbs to an injury at some point, it's difficult to envision Wieters seeing enough at-bats to warrant ownership in NL-only leagues or deeper mixed formats that start two catchers.

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.
