Matt Wieters - Orioles catcher

Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will make his long awaited 2015 debut tonight in Cleveland against the Indians. Wieters underwent Tommy John surgery on June 17 of last season, he’ll catch and bat fifth tonight.

The O’s actually made six roster moves this afternoon:

  • Wieters has been reinstated from the 60-day DL
  • Infielder Rey Navarro has been recalled from Triple-A Norfolk
  • Left handed pitcher Cesar Cabra’s contract has been selected
  • Catcher Steve Clevenger has been optioned
  • Right handed pitcher Mike Wright has been optioned
  • Infielder Everth Cabrera has been designated for assignment

Cabrera becomes the second Oriole to be DFA’d in the last ten days. Alejandro De Aza was designated for assignment on May 27, then later traded to the Boston Red Sox.
