Matt Wieters is getting a day off from catching tonight against the Rays and their All-Star left-hander David Price.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said recently how he'd like to get Wieters, who has started 79 of the team's 97 games at catcher, more of a break behind the plate. 

Wieters is 7-for-21 against Price for his career.

Taylor Teagarden will start behind the plate, while Steve Tolleson will make his sixth start of the season in left. Omar Quintanilla will make his second straight start at second.

Chris Davis (1-for-5, 2 Ks against Price) is out of the Orioles starting lineup.
