Player Notes
Matt Wieters (elbow) will spend the first few days of the regular season at extended spring training.

Advice: He's going to accompany the Orioles to Tropicana Park for their season-opener against the Rays on April 6, but that is only for ceremonial purposes. Wieters will be placed on the 15-day disabled list when camp breaks to give his surgically-repaired right elbow a little more time to heal. The hope is that he'll be ready to rock around April 11.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter confirmed Saturday that Matt Wieters (elbow) is likely to begin the season on the disabled list.

Advice: The Orioles are tentatively targeting a return on April 11, citing this as a precautionary measure rather than a setback in his recovery. With Wieters on the shelf, Caleb Joseph will begin the season as the O's primary backstop with Steve Clevenger serving as his backup.

Matt Wieters (elbow) will not play until Wednesday at the earliest.

Advice: Wieters is dealing with some tendinitis in his surgically-repaired right elbow. The Orioles aren't viewing it as a setback and are still hopeful of him being ready for Opening Day, but he's not going to have much time after getting a late start.
