BP's Jason Collette on Orioles Catcher Matt Wieters

Matt Wieters is getting stronger. From 2009 to 2010, Wieters hit 20 home runs in 887 plate appearances; he has 18 this season in 496 plate appearances this year. In each of the previous two seasons, his home run to fly ball rate was a pedestrian eight percent, but that rate currently sits at 12 percent this season. Over the past month, that rate is at a strong 31 percent, and he has hit eight of his 18 home runs in his last 83 at-bats. Next March, he and Alex Avila will be the catchers people are spending $20+ on rather than Joe Mauer. Wieters over Mauer with no power? Say it isn't so. Actually, I agree with Jason here.
