Fantasy Impact of the Nationals Signing Matt Wieters

It might have taken a little longer than he anticipated, but former Baltimore Orioles All-Star catcher Matt Wieters has caught on with a new team. 

According to multiple reports, Wieters has signed a two-year, $21 million contract with the Washington Nationals and will be the team's starting backstop this season. 

A former top prospect of the Orioles, Wieters is coming off a 2016 campaign that saw him hit .243 with 17 homers and 66 RBI en route to earning his fourth career All-Star appearance. This performance came on the heels of Wieters playing in a grand total of 101 games the past two seasons due to multiple injury issues. 

Still a viable fantasy option, Wieters goes from Camden Yards (one of the most hitter-friendly parks) to Nationals Park, a stadium that's right in the middle of the pack. Wieters boasts a career .249 average with a .283 BABip away from Baltimore.
