Kolten Wong couldn't find any traction against the Padres on Friday, finishing the game 0-for-4.
Wong struggled on Friday, but it's not indicative of what he's done on the whole this season. His triple-slash of .283/.341/.451 stands in the upper tier of his position offensively and he's hit nine homers while driving in 36 runs and scoring 42. At just 24 years of age, there's still room for offensive improvement here. Jul 4 - 1:09 AM
