Wieters ready for Friday

Greetings and apologies for the delay between posts. I examined this topic in a recent print article, but we've reached the time of year when Major League Baseball teams begin calling up their best prospects.

Here in Buffalo, that included 20-year-old Fernando Martinez leaving the Bisons to get a shot with the New York Mets. On Friday, the best prospect in the minors, at least according to several national outlets, will make his Big League debut.

Despite having never played for the Baltimore Orioles, catcher Matt Wieters is owned in a vast majority of fantasy leagues. He's expected to immediately take over the starting job from Gregg Zaun, and should be done with life in Triple-A.

What are your expectations for Wieters and some of the other game's top prospects who will be joining parent clubs in the weeks ahead?
