In 2016, his first full season after returning from right elbow surgery, Wieters earned his fourth career All-Star selection. An All-Star for the American League in 2011, 2012, and 2014 as well, Wieters appeared in 64 games (starting 57) for the Orioles in the season's first half, hitting .258 with nine doubles, nine home runs, and 37 RBI. He finished the season with 10 game-winning RBI, his most since 2013, and clubbed his 100th career home run on June 6.
A stalwart behind the plate with a strong reputation for guiding the pitching staff - Wieters has posted a catcher's ERA of 3.98 or lower in three of the past five seasons - he has thrown out 30.4 percent (150-of-493) of attempted base stealers in his career. In 2016, he caught 31.7 percent of runners (20-of-63).
From 2011-2014, Wieters led all American League catchers in RBI (248) and slugging percentage (.438), ranked tied for first in home runs (72), second in doubles (89) and at-bats (1,653), and third in games (457) and hits (417). He tallied the second-most catcher caught stealings in that span as well, nabbing 84 of 248 would-be base stealers.
