Wieters Out of Orioles' Lineup

Updated: Wednesday, May 7 2014, 07:39 PM EDT

Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters is out of the starting lineup after making a trip to have his sore right elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews.

Wieters flew roundtrip from Tampa to Pensacola on Wednesday for the exam and was listed as a backup player for Wednesday night's game against Tampa Bay.

While it was determined that Wieters would avoid the disabled list, he will likely be limited to designated hitter for a period of time.

"It doesn't hurt him to hit at all, either way," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

"That's not a factor. I'm not going to give you an exact timeframe when he can catch, but I think if he keeps down the path we hope it does, he'll be a catcher again in the near future."
