When Matt Wieters was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles, he was proclaimed to be “Joe Mauer with power”, and after mashing in the minors to the tune of .343/.438/.576, Wieters had a cult of personality leading to the creation of Matt Wieters Facts by our own Daniel Moroz. There was every reason to believe he was the next big thing—big switch-hitting catcher, excellent defensive skills, and a track record from college through the minors leagues—but 260 or so games into his major-league career, the man “even atheists believe in” has hit an almost average .264/.327/.394. Hitting about average for a major-leaguer isn’t bad when you’re a catcher, but it’s far below the lofty expectations placed upon the man “who sees you when you’re sleeping”. So we have several questions. Is his Hall of Fame candidacy, that at one time seemed so assured, gone? What kind of player is he now? What player can he still be?
