Matt Wieters knocks a run in Monday

Matt Wieters contributed to the losing effort against the Cubs on Monday night, going 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters continues to be exactly who has was with Baltimore. In fact, he's just a few points of of his career batting average and OBP points this year. That being said, catcher is always a shallow position, and that's true this year as well. If you need a warm body, he'll do.

Matt Wieters goes 0-for-5 on Tuesday night

Matt Wieters didn't look good at the plate on Tuesday. Wieters went 0-for-5, knocked in one RBI, and left five men on base.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters is in the first year of his contract with the Nationals. His average is .249 on the season and he's in a very good hitting lineup that should help him. If you own Wieters, hold onto him for now.

Matt Wieters drives in a run in loss to the Braves

Matt Wieters finished 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Monday's 11-10 loss to the Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters plated Bryce Harper in the bottom of the first inning as the Nats worked to put up runs to bail out their starter who got tagged early. He's proven to be a very nice off-season addition, providing a solid bat amidst Washington's potent lineup. Health permitting, he's on pace to having one of the best seasons of his career batting .268/.327/.399 with five home runs and 23 RBIs through a little over a third of the way through the season. You could do far worse at catcher on your roster.

Matt Wieters hits fifth home run Sunday

Matt Wieters went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs, two runs scored, and a walk in Sunday's victory over the Oakland Athletics. The home run was his fifth of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters seems to be enjoying a bit of a career resurgence in Washington after a few down and injury-riddled campaigns in Baltimore. His counting stats are not far off from his 2016, but he is walking more and is on pace to post a career high in the hits department. Wieters is a strong option for fantasy owners as long as he keeps hitting in a deep and talented Washington lineup.
