Matt Wieters takes a big left turn
When switch-hitting catcher Matt Wieters homered in the fourth inning against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night, it was his sixth home run of the season and all of them have come from the left side of the plate. That's not a tremendous statistical anomaly, since a decided majority of his at-bats are going to come against right-handed pitchers, but it stands out because he has a history of displaying more power batting right-handed.
