School of Roch: Duquette on Trumbo, Kim and Wieters

Shouldn’t Wieters be feeling better by now?

I asked Duquette if he felt confident that catcher Matt Wieters would be in the opening day lineup after experiencing discomfort in his right elbow during Saturday’s game.
“I’m not sure where that’s going to come out,” Duquette replied. “I know he needs a rest period before he ramps it up, but I’ve been encouraged by what I’ve heard. I know looking at Matt, it looks to me like he’s fairly encouraged by how he feels.

“We’re in a pretty good position with our catching depth. Of course we’d like to have Matt back to start the season, but I don’t know the answer to that.”

School of Roch: Notes on Wieters, Matusz, Britton and more

Still not a good sign.

Renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews examined Matt Wieters’ MRI and concurred with team physicians who said there were no signs of structural damage.

More good news for the Orioles, who held obvious concerns about Wieters after he exited Saturday’s game with right wrist soreness.
