Wieters Called-Up for Friday’s Game!

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.

    One thing I don’t think gets talked about much is the He is going to help the young pitchers on their way to Camden as well.

    Interesting. Another Wieters fan named Joe. In regard to that comment, I’m not sure that he’ll help the current pitchers very much, but the pitchers coming up or already here, especially Berken and Bergesen, and someone like Hernandez who will eventually be up, all of them will be more comfortable throwing to him than to Zaun, just because of the familiarity factor. I’m pumped
