Kolten Wong returns at less than 100 percent


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Although he returned from the disabled list Sunday, Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong said he's not fully recovered from a shoulder injury he suffered in early June.

"I wouldn't say it's 100 percent, but it's pretty close," Wong said, per MLB.com. "I'm able to finish my swing now without any pain and kind of get back to where I was before I got hurt."

Though, Wong admitted he might not be 100 percent the rest of the season.

"It's never going to be back to normal," Wong said. "You play 100-something games, your shoulder is never really going to feel good. It feels great right now. I've been swinging the bat and finishing my swing without any pain."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Cardinals infielder Kolten Wong was not in the team's starting lineup Friday.

Wong is dealing with a shoulder injury, but was able to return to action Thursday. He's been used in a part-time role, so it's unclear if he's still hurt or if this is a normal day off for Wong. 


Kolten Wong returns to St. Louis lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong certainly recovered quickly from a shoulder problem that sidelined him Wednesday. He is back in the lineup for the Thursday night game against Kansas City.

Wong hopes to take the momentum he gained Tuesday night from his first major league home run - a grand slam - and run with it. It's just one of two hits he has managed in his last 16 at-bats.


Kolten Wong not in lineup Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Wong hit a grand slam Tuesday that doubled as his first career home run, but he suffered a shoulder injury late, putting his status for Wednesday's game in question. He said Tuesday night that he expected to miss just one game at the most, so barring a setback, he should return to the lineup Thursday.


Shoulder could keep Kolten Wong out Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Cardinals infielder Kolten Wong started his game off with a bang Tuesday, but it didn’t end how he hoped in an 8-7 loss to the Royals.

Wong put the Cardinals on the board with a second-inning grand slam, his first home run of the season. That was all he would managed in the outing, finishing 1 for 5 in the outing, and had to leave due to a shoulder injury.

After the game, STLBaseballWeekly.com reports Wong visited with the training staff, but the shoulder checked out OK. He might sit out Wednesday's game, but said he is confident he won't miss more than one game.


Kolten Wong developing into nice option at second base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Fantasy owners should not be hesitant to add Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong, who is owned in just 53 percent of Fantasy leagues as of Thursday. He didn't get off to a great start this season and paid for it with a demotion to the minors, but he's been red hot since his recall.

Wong is batting .381 with a .435 on-base percentage, .476 slugging percentage and .911 OPS in 10 games since his recall. He has four doubles, six RBI, six runs and four stolen bases in that span.

If you are looking for home run power, then you aren't going to find it with Wong. However, he is still a good gap hitter and has enough speed to be a threat for 20 stolen bases. He is also a very good contact hitter. 

The early season version of Wong is not the player he is capable of being. It's more like the one he's been since he returned from the minors. I know second base is a deep Fantasy position, but I would not hesitate to own Wong in Head-to-Head or Rotisserie formats.


Kolten Wong collects four hits vs. Yankees


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong went 4 for 5 with a double, a run and an RBI in his team's 7-4 loss to the Yankees Wednesday.

Wong has done a great job since rejoining the Cardinals, going 16 for 42 with four stolen bases over the last two weeks. The recent hot stretch gives him a .283/.336/.345 line with 11 RBI and seven stolen bases in 113 at-bats.


Kolten Wong drives in three with one swing


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong cleared the bases Sunday against the Braves. 

Wong stepped to the plate with the bases loaded in the second inning. On the fourth pitch of the at-bat, he slapped a 92 mph fastball to left center, bringing in all three runs. Wong finished 1 for 3, with zero runs scored and three RBI. He also walked during the contest. He's collected five hits in three games since he returned from Triple-A.


Kolten Wong returns Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has returned to the team's starting lineup Friday.

Wong has missed the past few games due to an illness, but is ready to return. He will hit second against Ervin Santana. Wong hit .225 in 71 at-bats in the majors prior to his demotion.


Stomach problem keeps Kolten Wong out again Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has yet to play since his recall Wednesday from Triple-A Memphis. He has been scratched again Thursday with a stomach ailment. Mark Ellis is set to man the position.

Wong produced a .225/.276/.268 stat line for the Cardinals before his demotion in late April.


Playing time key to Kolten Wong's value


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/14/2014) Kolten Wong did what he was supposed to do at Triple-A Memphis, hitting .344 (22 for 64) with two home runs and five stolen bases in only 15 games to prove once and for all he belongs in the majors. So now that he's back, should Fantasy owners make a move for him again?

More than anything, it depends on how the Cardinals use Mark Ellis going forward. The truth is Wong had fallen out of favor in Fantasy even before his demotion. He was sitting half the time once Ellis came off the DL.

Ellis is off to a miserable start, though -- his .190 batting average even worse than the one that got Wong demoted -- so maybe the Cardinals have learned their lesson. Wong showed up with a stomach bug Wednesday, so his absence from the lineup tells us nothing. If he gets back to playing every day, he could still become that Shane Victorino-type player many hoped he would coming into the season, hitting for a good batting average with maybe 10 home runs and 20 stolen bases.

Then again, second base is so deep that he may not be worth the gamble in your league. I think he's a better bet than Rougned Odor of contributing this year, but I'd prefer to own Yangervis Solarte and, at least in Rotisserie leagues, Emilio Bonifacio.


Kolten Wong out due to stomach illness


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong, who was recalled from Triple-A Memphis, is not expected to be available Wednesday against the Cubs due to a stomach illness.
