|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(9/3/14) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has returned to the lineup for the Wednesday game against visiting Pittsburgh. He pinch-hit Tuesday night.
Wong has been dealing with a neck ailment that had prevented him from starting since Sunday.
|Kolten Wong still not starting Tuesday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/2/14) Cardinals infielder Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Pirates, despite being able to serve as a pinch-hitter in Monday's game.
Wong admitted his neck was still sore even though he got into Monday's game, though it is clearly improved enough for him to be available. At this point, he is considered day to day moving forward.

(9/1/14) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong slugged a two-run pinch-hit home run in Monday's 5-4 win over the Pirates.
Wong was cleared of a concussion before the game, but manager Mike Matheny didn't immediately stick him back in the lineup. That left Wong the opportunity to provide the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and the bullpen locked down the final six outs to hand the Cardinals a win.
"My neck was killing me today," Wong told MLB.com after the game. "But there comes certain points in time when you have to man up. Today was definitely one of those days where I told myself I just needed to man up and put a good at-bat together."
Wong has hit .252/.293/.404 with 11 home runs, 37 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 337 at-bats.
|Neck issue keeps Kolten Wong out of lineup Monday |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/14) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong had another series of tests on Monday, which showed no signs of a concussion, according to FOX Sports Midwest. Howvever, a sore neck will keep Wong out of the starting lineup Monday against Pittsburgh.
|Kolten Wong showing no signs of concussion |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/31/14) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong underwent a series of tests that ruled out a possible concussion, MLB.com reports. Wong hits his head awkwardly on the turf while in pursuit of a pop fly in the eighth inning against the Cubs. His status remains up in the air for Monday's home against Pittsburgh.
"He went through a bunch of tests already," manager Mike Matheny said. "The doctors got to him. There were no signs of concussion. We've had a couple different doctors look at him already. I'm sure tomorrow he'll be a little sore. We'll probably bring the doctors back in tomorrow and re-evaluate. We got good news on the initial report."
|Taken 22nd overall in the 2011 draft, Kolten Wong's ascension to the majors in mid-August may have seemed abrupt to some, but based on the .303 batting average he put together at Triple-A, he didn't have much more to learn in the minors. Of course, given the numbers he had in the majors, you might wish he did, but keep in mind he was splitting time with David Freese, with Matt Carpenter shifting from second to third base as necessary, and may have gotten worn down playing deeper into the year than he was accustomed to doing. A high batting average is probably the one certainty for the 5-foot-9 Hawaii native, who has so far made the most of his his minimal tools, generating more power than expected for a player his size and making judicious use of his moderate foot speed. He has all the makings of another Jose Altuve, but perhaps with a little more power and a little less speed. Wong will be a sleeper in all formats and is already a must-draft in NL-only leagues.
