Nationals' Matt Wieters: Officially exercises player option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters will officially return to the Nationals in 2018 after exercising his $10.5 million player option, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

As expected, Wieters will return to Washington for the final year of his two-year deal. The backstop is coming off one of his worst statistical seasons as a pro, hitting just .225/.288/.344 with 10 homers and 52 RBI over 123 games. He's still viewed as the Nationals' starting catcher heading into 2018, but the team may look to bring in a capable backup that could push Wieters for playing time.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wieters is expected to stay with the Nationals and exercise his $10.5 million player option for the 2018 season, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Wieters had a bit of a down year during his first season with Washington, slashing .225/.288/.344 with 10 home runs and 52 RBI. On a positive note, he was able to stay relatively healthy, playing in 123 games, and will head into spring training as the starting catcher for the Nats.
