23-year old switch hitting catcher Matt Wieters and 25-year old righty swinging OF Nolan Reimold appear to be in the majors to stay. Wieters was the Orioles’ #1 rated prospect heading into this season according to Baseball America. He has played in 84 games for the Orioles and he is 86 for 305 (.282 avg, .729 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 7 homers and 36 RBIs. You have to think that Wieters will hit better next season as he adjusts to the majors. Nolan Reimold was the Orioles’ #5 rated prospect heading into this season according to Baseball America. Reimold has played in 104 games for the O’s this season and he is 100 for 358 (.279 avg, .821 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 15 homers, 45 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Reimold has huge power potential and he will likely go to spring training as the starting LF. The Orioles were smart to call up the kids and at least give O’s fans a glimpse of a bright future ahead.
