Where are they now - Matt Wieters

Great article on Matt Wieters, who will be coming to a MLB stadium near you............ soon.

J.J. Cannon, the Keys hitting coach, has worked with him since the spring.

coming here is a blessing for us," Cannon said. "He's a knowledgeable,
positive young man. I'm surprised he adapted so quickly to pro ball. He
just came in and took off."

He called him a leader in both the clubhouse and on the field.

"You see him in the locker room and you don't think he's the big dog," Cannon said. "But on the field he is the big dog."
