Catchers

If anybody was wondering about Matt Wieters' run production during the first two weeks of the season, he answered with some big swings this past week, most notably the walkoff grand slam Thursday night that carried the Orioles to an extra-inning, series clinching victory over the Rays. Taylor Teagarden made just one start and called a nice game for Wei-Yin Chen on Saturday, but was hitless in four at-bats. Wieters "only" threw out two of the four runners who tried to steal on him.
