Matt Wieters might play for Orioles on Tuesday

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters ran the bases Monday, and might be ready to play on Tuesday.

Catcher Matt Wieters (right hamstring) ran the bases Monday and reported no problems. Assuming he is pain-free Tuesday, he could play against the New York Mets, either at catcher or designated hitter. He hasn't played since leaving against the Seattle Mariners on Aug. 11 with the strain.

"If he feels no repercussions from the workout today, we'll consider playing him" Tuesday, Showalter said. "It's as good a [workout] day for him as you could hope for."

Steve Pearce (oblique) resumed baseball activities Monday in Sarasota, Fla., hitting off a tee and doing soft toss. He had felt some tightness Saturday and took two days off from his rehab work.

Right-hander Mike Wright (left calf) threw 15 pitches three times from a half-mound in Sarasota on Monday and is expected to throw from a full mound Wednesday.

Reliever Chaz Roe (right shoulder) is improving and might throw in the Camden Yards bullpen this week.

Showalter said he is hopeful Pearce, Wright and Roe will return to the Orioles by Sept. 1, if not earlier.
