Heading into the season, Matt Wieters has emerged as a leader for the Baltimore Orioles. Many have argued whether or not he is a bust – despite only having played in the major leagues for less than two full seasons.
That being said, he’s far from it. So Wieters has not turned into the next Johnny Bench, or a “Mauer with Power”. The promise of the night when he debuted is still there, but it has taken a while to come to the surface.
It’s safe to say after Wieters’ 2011 season where emerged as an All-Star and a gold glove winner, he is becoming what fans thought he would be.
