Weiters decided against pitching and went with catching from here on out and it was the best decision he has ever made. Not only was he able to excel as a hitter in his junior year, but he was able to showcase his defense and grow as a player. That improvement at Georgia Tech was so great this year that there was no doubt in any ones mind that he was to be taken if available. He has matured a lot, and still has time to fill into his 6'5'' frame. He is a switch hitter as well, and will probably start in Lo-A hoping his success there could possible push him to Double-A. The reason I would place him there is so he can get more at-bats with a wooden bat to get a better feel for it. But that is all he will need. The swing, bat, and arm are there otherwise; all he needs is some fine tuning. The Orioles see him with at the MLB in two to three seasons, and that is a very realistic approach. He has the ability to hit 20+ homeruns and a high average. "I'm very excited to be part of the Orioles organization," Wieters said in a conference call. "I really went into the draft with no predetermined [idea] of where I might go and what I might do ... From the time I was picked, I was very excited."
