Orioles | Matt Wieters, Pedro Alvarez out

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 12:26:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and 1B Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP John Danks Thursday, April 28. C Caleb Joseph is behind the plate and is batting ninth, while OF Nolan Reimold starts again in left field and is hitting seventh. OF Mark Trumbo is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: All Orioles players have some intrigue in Baltimore tonight facing the very hittable Danks. Joseph's daily value is limited while hitting ninth, however. Alvarez is off to a slow start (.186, no home runs) and could be benched regularly against lefties. Pay up for Trumbo tonight.

Orioles | Matt Wieters not starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 12:54:50 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays. C Caleb Joseph is hitting eighth against Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal day off for Wieters, who was the catcher in the Monday game. He has a .239 average in April with only one home run, but you should keep an eye on Wieters for fantasy purposes.

Orioles | Matt Wieters, J.J. Hardy out

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 11:01:33 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and SS J.J. Hardy are not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Sunday, April 24. 3B Manny Machado will start at shortstop, while 2B Ryan Flaherty will start at third base and is batting ninth. C Caleb Joseph will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph is hitting .250 over his last seven days and could be a cheaper option for owners in two-catcher leagues. Flaherty is hitting only .143 this season and probably should be avoided by owners.

Orioles | Matt Wieters out vs. Royals

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:54:53 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Chris Young Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters is off to a modest start with eight RBI and a .270/.341/.405 slash line, but you'll want to avoid him in daily contests and replace him where you can in seasonal leagues Friday. Joseph wasn't strong against right-handed pitchers last year with a .226/.301/.382 slash line, so he is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief in daily contests Friday.

Orioles | No Matt Wieters Wednesday

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 12:21:44 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 20. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and is hitting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph does have some pop in his lumber, and Dickey hasn't fooled many with his knuckler so far this year. You could do much worse at catcher with Joseph if you're looking to save some cash in daily formats.

Orioles | Matt Wieters sitting vs. lefty

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 13:55:48 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Martin Perez Friday, April 15. C Caleb Joseph is catching and hitting ninth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph had four of his 11 home runs against lefties last year and hit .250. He's one to avoid because of his lineup position in daily games Friday night, but you could do worse as a low-end catching option.

Orioles | Matt Wieters takes a seat

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:55:23 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. C Caleb Joseph is starting and hitting eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph does have some pop, as evidenced by his 11 home runs in 320 at-bats for the O's last season. Kelly has an upper-90s fastball, but he has issues with the long ball, too, so Joseph could be a sneaky sleeper in daily contests.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez resting on Saturday

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 13:56:50 -0700

Baltimore Orioles DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly on Saturday, April 9. C Matt Wieters will move over to designated hitter and bat sixth while C Caleb Joseph will serve as SP Mike Wright's battery-mate behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez signed with the Orioles in mid-March and predictably struggled during the spring, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise the ex-Pittsburgh Pirate is 0-for-12 to begin his Baltimore career. Owners should know the drill with Alvarez by now; occasional outbursts of power accompanied by a low batting average. As long as your team can take the hit in average, he can be a boon to the HR and RBI categories.

Orioles | Matt Wieters with day off

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 12:54:03 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 7. C Caleb Joseph is starting and hitting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph played well when Wieters was hurt last year and hit 11 home runs in 320 at-bats, so he has some pop as a backup catcher. However, he won't have much value to daily gamers while hitting ninth Thursday.

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 14:44:51 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is out of the lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, Oct. 3, with C Caleb Joseph hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is facing hard-throwing Luis Severino, and there are better options on FantasyScore.
