Matt Wieters doesn’t think he’ll need to go on the disabled list


Orioles catcher Matt Wieters expects that he’ll be able to avoid the disabled list with his hamstring injury, MASN’s Roch Kubatko reports. Though he isn’t starting, Wieters will be available off the bench during Friday night’s game against the Athletics if needed.

Wieters strained his right hamstring during Tuesday’s game against the Mariners. The 29-year-old catcher is currently on a six-game hitting streak and has hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games. He carries a .278/.305/.449 triple-slash line with five home runs and 17 RBI in 167 plate appearances since making his 2015 season debut on June 5.
