Matt Wieters singles on Saturday

Matt Wieters went 1-for-4 with a single and two strikeouts in the Nationals' loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters reached base for the second straight day on Saturday. The veteran backstop is sporting a .263/.391/.579 slash line with two home runs in his first seven games off the disabled list.

Matt Wieters hits first home run

Matt Wieters went 2-for-4 with two runs, two RBI and a solo home run in the Nationals' win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters hasn't had the start he probably wished he has, landing on the DL after only two games and entering todays contest with a .100 batting average. Hopefully todays performance is a kickstart for Wieters in what he hopes is a bounce-back season.

Matt Wieters activated from 10-day disabled list

The Nationals have activated Matt Wieters from the 10-day disabled list. The team designated Miguel Montero for assignment to clear a roster spot.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters played two games before being sidelined with an oblique injury. A former reliable fantasy option, Wieter is nothing more than an NL-only or deep two-catcher league option at this point.

Matt Wieters (oblique) doing batting drills

Matt Wieters (oblique) has taken part in several hitting drills and is optimistic he will come off the DL when the 10 day minimum has passed.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, it sounds likely that Wieters will come off the DL following the 10 day minimum, as Wieters had said he would've played through the injury had it been later in the season. Wieters should return to the top of the depth chart with either Miguel Montero or Pedro Severino serving as the backup.

Matt Wieters placed on 10-day DL with oblique strain

The Nationals placed Matt Wieters on the 10-day disabled list on Monday with a "mild left oblique strain." The team called up Pedro Severino to take Wieters' place on the roster.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters had one hit in seven at-bats on the young season, and he claims that the injury is minor. Oblique injuries are tricky, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him out of action for longer than the 10-day minimum stay. Expect Miguel Montero to do the bulk of the catching in Wieters' absence.
