Matt Wieters hits grand slam as Washington wins

Matt Wieters hit a grand slam on Sunday afternoon as the Nationals defeated the Cubs 9-4.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters in total had five RBIs on the day, which gives him 43 for the year. The veteran catcher is now hitting .245 with a .676 OPS. He's a fine option in single catcher formats, but he doesn't need to be owned by any means.
