I missed this the other day but, apparently, Matt Wieters’ timetable for returning to action has been extended a bit. He was originally slated to be eligible to come back tomorrow, and the general chatter around the Orioles was that he’d play at some point in April. But nope. This report, which I saw via Camden Chat:
Asked about possible May 1 return, Wieters said its possible but there’s no real target date to get back. #orioles

Better to have a healthy Wieters who can play every day as opposed to rushing him back. Especially given that we have far less data about catchers coming back from Tommy John surgery than we do pitchers and thus hard-and-fast timetables are likely folly.
