If Matt Wieters isn't totally exhausted, he's not human. He has played a ton of innings this season and he has played very well defensively while putting up very solid overall run-production numbers for his position. This wasn't his best week, either. He allowed four stolen bases without throwing anybody out, and had four hits in 22 at-bats with three RBI. Backup Steve Clevenger had a hit in three at-bats in his only start. They get a one-grade increase because Wieters played all 18 innings on Friday night.
