Have seen him at Potomac. Can't say I was overly impressed but he is obviously doing well. And a cool name. That should count for something.

i'm guessing his ceiling is a backup catcher, he's progressing nicely though.

Wonder if he would consider changing the spelling to Rowdy?

Or his last name to Yates...

I think he needs a theme song, to the tune of Daydream Believer.  It could be the new WIL-SON!  His name's Raudy Read, a catcher on our team...

Maybe songs about catchers just might not be too exciting.

they ought to play bagpipes when he goes to bat and he ought to be allowed to wear a kilt.

A kilt and catcher's gear forms a spectacularly unfortunate plethora of chances for unpleasantness, bagpipes or no.

So, does his 80 games track along the major league schedule or syracuse?  It looks like he's not on the MLB roster, but he was on at the time of the suspension.  If it is the majors, then we have 13 games to go.  After that, someone has to be bumped from the 40 man - either he stays off or someone else is bumped.

This guy seriously screwed himself. He’d be in the majors now if not for the suspension. And even if he comes back and sets the world on fire, he has to sit for the playoffs.

Would he have been any good without the PEDs?

26 games at Harrisburg: .322 / .386 / .489

Looks like he got sent from Syracuse down to Harrisburg when Wieters came back.  he was hitting .260 at AAA.
