He’s finally coming…multiple readers have emailed that Orioles president Andy MacPhail said on MASN that top prospect Matt Wieters will debut Friday in Baltimore against Dontrelle Willis and the Tigers. Wieters, 23, posted a .285/.367/.482 line in Triple A. He slugged .552 in May.
I am so excited to hear about this during the game from the man himself, Andy Macphail. Wieters has been starting to heat up in the minors, and we can really use his bat now. Our production has not been good from both of the catchers on the 25 man roster, and I’m hoping Wieters will be a breath of fresh air. I will be making it out to Camden Yard Friday to watch Wieters first game in a Orioles uniform, as I’m sure so many of us will be.
