SARASOTA, Fla. -- Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will miss several games after spraining his right ankle running the bases Tuesday.

Wieters' ankle was heavily taped when he walked into the clubhouse Wednesday. He called it a "slight sprain" and says he'd probably try to play if it was the regular season.

The Orioles are on the road Thursday and Friday. Wieters says it's likely he won't make either trip to allow the swelling to subside.

He says he'll "get treatment on it and ice it up."

If all goes well, Wieters could take some swings in the batting cage on Thursday.
