SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles catcher Matt Wieters left Tuesday’s Grapefruit League game against the Boston Red Sox following the bottom of the fourth inning after he rolled his right ankle rounding third base.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wieters was taken out of the game as a precaution. No X-rays were planned, Showalter said.
“He was fine,” Showalter said. “He just went in and got some ice on it. ... [Head trainer] Richie [Bancells] said that if it was during the season, he’d continue to play. But we wanted to get some ice on it and make sure it doesn’t turn into something else.”
Wieters led the major leagues last season in games started (134) and innings played (1201) at catcher.
