Where are they now - Matt Wieters

Matt got off to what you might call a "good" start in his professional debut, going yard in his first two at-bats as a pro. Nice. Take my word for it - you will see Weiters with the Orioles by the end of the season, probably closer to mid-year. To say he's been "fast-tracked" would be an understatement.
"You always dream of [a debut like this], but you just go out and play," Wieters said. "I never have [opened] like tonight. I've only hit two home runs in a game a couple times. It's good to get the year started off right, but there's 139 games left."
