Player Notes
Agent Scott Boras has said that his client, Matt Wieters (elbow), will be ready to play on Opening Day.

Advice: Orioles manager Buck Showalter said last week that it's possible Wieters won't be ready for the opener as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery, but Boras doesn't seem to think it will be an issue. The O's will no doubt take things slowly with the catcher in spring training and we likely won't know for sure until he starts playing in Grapefruit League action whether he can be penciled into the lineup on April 6 versus the Rays.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that "there seems no urgency on either side" when it comes to extension talks between the Orioles and Matt Wieters.

Advice: The two sides are known to have had discussions early in the 2013 season, but nothing materialized and it's looking at this point like Wieters will play out his final year before free agency. The talented backstop was limited to just 26 games last season before having Tommy John surgery, which could sideline him past Opening Day next year.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said this week that Matt Wieters (elbow) might not be ready for Opening Day.

Advice: Wieters underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in mid-June and that procedure usually requires 8-10 months of recovery time for position players. "I think Manny [Machado] makes the start of the year, and I think Matt is very close thereafter," Showalter said. "But we won’t put either one of these guys on the field until it’s time to go, and try to keep the finish line in mind."
