Orioles | Several BAL regulars return to action

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:57:06 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters, 3B Pedro Alvarez and OF Joey Rickard are back in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters is batting .389 (7-for-18) with two doubles, a home run and three RBI over the past week and makes a solid catching option in all fantasy formats. Alvarez and Rickard have combined to go 4-for-32 at the plate over the same time period, so they should be avoided for now.

Orioles | Matt Wieters resting Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:40:47 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. C Caleb Joseph is catching and is hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph will leave the yard every now and then, but he's hitting only .190 (11-for-58) on the year with no homers or RBI. It's safe to say he's one to avoid in daily setups tonight.

Orioles | Matt Wieters will not start

Sun, 22 May 2016 11:10:27 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angeles of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Sunday, May 22. C Caleb Joseph will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph has gone hitless in his last seven at-bats, so owners should look for other players to use in their starting lineups.

Orioles | Matt Wieters hits game-winning homer

Sun, 22 May 2016 00:22:23 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters celebrated his 30th birthday Saturday, May 21, when he hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning to give his team a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters lifted his line to .283/.330/.455, and these averages certainly suggest a hitter who should be considered for fantasy purposes. He may occasionally lose a start at catcher to Caleb Joseph, but Wieters certainly is in no danger of losing playing time soon.

Orioles | Matt Wieters resting Sunday

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:56:45 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Sunday, May 15. C Caleb Joseph will start behind the plate and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: It's not surprising that Wieters is out of the lineup after catching back-to-back games Friday and Saturday. Joseph is 4-for-14 over the past two weeks after getting off to a slow start but has not driven in a run in 47 at-bats this year and is not a recommended option Sunday.

Orioles | Matt Wieters not playing

Thu, 12 May 2016 11:56:24 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 12. C Caleb Joseph is behind the plate and is hitting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph is a weak-hitting second catcher for the O's who only has nine hits in 43 at-bats (.209) this year. Pelfrey has been a very hittable pitcher this year, but Joseph still profiles as a low-end daily selection at catcher.

Orioles | Two Orioles sitting second game

Sat, 07 May 2016 14:32:37 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and OF Joey Rickard are out of the lineup for the second game of a doubleheader Saturday, May 7. OF Hyun-soo Kim is hitting second, DH Pedro Alvarez hits sixth and C Caleb Joseph hits ninth.

Fantasy Tip: It's the highest Kim has hit this season, and for good reason, as he's hitting .526 in 19 at-bats. He's a solid low-end option against Jesse Hahn. Alvarez, who has yet to get it going, and Joseph aren't great starts.

Orioles | No Matt Wieters vs. Oakland

Fri, 06 May 2016 12:31:17 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats Friday, as he has posted an underwhelming .189/.268/.216 slash line to start the season. However, Wieters hasn't been significantly better with just five runs, a home run, eight RBI and a .234/.300/.313 line. Wieters should be benched and potentially replaced in shallow mixed leagues.
