BALTIMORE – Still recovering from the right hamstring strain he suffered on Tuesday night, Matt Wieters isn’t playing on Friday night. He doesn’t think it will be terribly long until he plays again.
“I feel good. It’s definitely a lot looser than it was a couple of days ago. Did a lot of treatment today, and hopefully it will feel good tomorrow,” Wieters said.
“I’ll be available if needed in any kind of situation, but probably let it rest as much as possible today and see how it feels when I come in tomorrow.”
Wieters doesn’t think a stint on the disabled list will be needed.
“I don’t think it’s a DL thing,” Wieters said. “I feel better than when I did it and the day after I did it. We keep getting better and hopefully get back out there soon.”
