Matt Wieters (toe) activated from 10-day IL

Matt Wieters has been activated from the 10-day IL on Friday. Andrew Knizner was optioned to the Cards alternate site in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters has been on the shelf since August 20th with a left great toe contusion. He's only had 12 at-bats so far this year, going hitless. He'll spell Yadier Molina but obviously holds no fantasy value.

Matt Wieters lands on the IL with toe contusion

Matt Wieters was placed on the 10-day IL with a left great toe contusion according to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Yadier Molina was activated from the IL in a subsequent move so the Cards will be fine without Wieters services. He really struggled in limited action this year, going hitless in 12 at-bats.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports the Cardinals have re-signed Matt Wieters to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Wieters can earn an additional $1 million in incentives. He will once again be the primary backup for Yadier Molina this season. In 67 games last year Wieters hit .214 with 11 homers.

Matt Wieters swats pinch-hit home run Wednesday

Matt Wieters hit a two-run home run in his only at-bat Wednesday in the Cardinals' victory over the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters' playing time took a significant hit after Yadier Molina's return from the injured list. He's been relatively disappointing in 2019, batting .220 with 11 home runs and 25 RBI in 159 at-bats.

Matt Wieters goes deep Thursday

Fantasy Impact

Wieters went deep in the sixth off Derek Holland for his 10th of the season. He's batting .238 with a .789 OPS. With Yadier Molina's return on the horizon, Wieters will shift back to a backup role.
