Matt Wieters Newsbeat

Wieters shut down from catching due to elbow tendinitis | MLB.com

“He took infield. He had ups, downs, he had throws between innings. That was challenging and it was at a different speed,” Showalter said. “I don’t care what you do on back fields, where there’s just a different adrenaline flow, a different arm speed. There’s throwing the ball down between innings. He said he felt a little .. achy-ness, with a couple, maybe two out of seven throws. I think we don’t want it—and Matt doesn’t want it—to mushroom into something bigger than hopefully it is.”

School of Roch: Showalter on Duquette and Wieters on his throwing progression

Catcher Matt Wieters revealed that he expanded the distance on his throws yesterday to 150 feet. He had been playing catch at 120.

The rehab’s going well and going how it’s supposed to from all the talk I’ve gotten with Dr. (James) Andrews and my physical therapist down here and Richie (Bancells),” Wieters said. “Everything’s kind of moved along and we’re preparing for me to be ready for opening day. We still have a good couple of months before we’re there, so it’s still going to be a lot of work to put into it, but that’s what I’m preparing for. We’re trying to get all the steps checked off before we get there.

“We’ll see when I’m actually going to be able to get behind the plate and catch in games during spring training, but it’s just a matter of making sure the arm has been tested enough to where when we do get into games with adrenaline and a little bit of pressure that we’re ready to go.”

School of Roch: Wieters on his rehab and opening day

“Right now, it’s my goal and I want to be ready to start the season on opening day, but at the same time, we’re too early to know,” Wieters said. “This is not something where we want to set a deadline date where I need to be ready. I don’t want to rush it and have a setback.
“I think everybody’s end goal is for me to get back healthy and be full go and be ready to go. That’s my goal. I want to play as many games as I can and catch as many as I can, but at the same time I need to see what kind of reaction I’m going to have as far as fatigue that we’re going to have to push through.”
