The Baltimore Orioles believe that they found their catcher of the future.
“We are very pleased, very happy and glad it’s over, we took the player we wanted,” said Joe Jordan, the Orioles’ director of scouting.
There was a chance that the Orioles would not draft Wieters. But they decided to draft him, even though that he’s represented by super agent Scott Boras.
Boras and Orioles owner Peter Angelos reportedly have a rocky relationship.
“Obviously, we got past that, we feel like, at the end of the day, he will be out there playing for us,” said Jordan. “There will be some, but we would not have taken him if we did not think he would be out this summer.”
With the Yellow Jackets, Wieters had a .358 batting average with 10 home runs and 59 RBI’s.
