Cardinals' Kolten Wong 'getting more comfortable' leading off
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong is 8 for 19 with three walks in his last five games, which have all come with him slotted in the leadoff spot.
"I’m definitely getting more comfortable," Wong said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I’m starting to realize what kind of hitter I am. I understand that I can see some pitches and still be comfortable going deep into at-bats. Before, I kind of panicked leading off because I wasn’t someone who was comfortable taking pitches. Now I know I can still drive balls, no matter what the count. It just takes time. Leadoff isn’t an easy place to hit at. It’s all about learning and understanding how to hit leadoff and then buying into it."
The lineup change as pushed third baseman Matt Carpenter to the No. 2 spot, a move he sees as positive for the offense.
"I think we’re a better offense with him hitting leadoff and me hitting in the second spot," Carpenter said. "He just needed to develop as a hitter, and we’re seeing what he’s been able to become — a guy that can have tough at-bats. That’s the key to what a leadoff (hitter) is. It’s not giving away at-bats. And he hasn’t given away at-bats all year."
Wong's recent hot stretch gives him a .315/.369/.469 line with five home runs and 22 RBI in 162 at-bats.
Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong drives in two RBI in win over Mets
|(5/21/15) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong went 3 for 5 and drove in two RBI in his team's 9-0 win over the Mets on Wednesday.
Wong scored the first run of the game on a first-inning double by Jhonny Peralta. He then singled in runs in the fourth and fifth innings.
"That's us clicking on all cylinders," Wong said.
Wong has hit .311/.358/.473 with five home runs and 22 RBI in 148 at-bats.
Kolten Wong back in leadoff spot, Matt Adams at cleanup for Cards
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) With Peter Bourjos resting after facing left-hander Jonathon Niese, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny inserted second baseman Kolten Wong back in the leadoff spot Wednesday night against the Mets.
With Wong back in the leadoff spot, Matheny moved Randal Grichuk to the eighth spot. Matt Adams also returned to the lineup and is batting cleanup against Bartolo Colon and the Mets.
Wong is hitting .339 (21 for 62) with four homers and 13 RBI over his last 16 games. Adams is hitting .105 (4 for 38) with nine strikeouts over his last 13 games played.
|2014 summary: Branded a contact hitter who may or may not hit for moderate power someday, Kolten Wong trampled all over that scouting report as a rookie. He made contact at a high rate, yes, but because of an elevated fly-ball rate, it translated more to power than batting average. It began with him hitting 11 homers in 244 at-bats after returning from a shoulder injury in early July and continued with a couple clutch homers in the postseason.|
Playing time status: The Cardinals never fully bought into Wong as their full-time second baseman in 2014, frequently sitting him against left-handed pitchers and even sending him to the minors for a spell early in the season. But it's clear they're committed to him for the long haul, having ditched his most obvious platoon partners this offseason. Especially after the playoff heroics, his role appears secure.
2015 outlook: Only 24, Wong is still finding himself in the majors, so the tradeoff between home runs and batting average hasn't completely sorted itself out. No matter where exactly he lands, though, he has the kind of well-rounded skill set Fantasy owners look for, right down to his 20 stolen bases last year. He'll probably slip outside the top 12 second basemen on Draft Day, but he's a good bet to join that group by season's end.
