"All things considered, if things go well today, he will meet us in Cleveland," Showalter said. "He wants to [potentially] DH the second game [for Norfolk], and he would have to get up at 4 o'clock in the morning and would not be a good option. He needs to go back to Baltimore and get his family, go to Cleveland. With all things considered, I want him to start fresh, with fresh legs."
Wieters is recovering from June 2014 Tommy John surgery.
Showalter reiterated that Bud Norris, who pitched Game 1 for Norfolk, could be shortened up so that he remains an option to pitch Sunday's game in Cleveland.
