Free agent catcher Matt Wieters reportedly lands with new team

Free agent catcher Matt Wieters is reportedly close to signing with the Washington Nationals, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal has confirmed.

Wieters, 30, has spent his entire major-league career with with the Baltimore Orioles, who drafted him with the No. 5 overall pick in 2007.

A four-time All-Star, three-time 20-homer man and two-time Gold Glove winner, Wieters is the top remaining free agent available. A client of super agent Scott Boras, many assumed that teams were reluctant to sign Wieters because of a high asking price.

As noted by Rosenthal, once the deal with Washington becomes official, the Nationals will have a surplus of catchers. Jose Lobaton, Derek Norris, Pedro Severino, Spencer Kieboom and Raudy Read are all listed on the 40-man roster, meaning a trade could be imminent.
