Date:

Kolten Wong is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

Wong suffered a minor wrist injury on Saturday, but he stayed the game so this just looks like a day off. Pete Kozma is at second base Sunday in his place.
May 3 - 11:36 AM

Kolten Wong hit an RBI triple in Saturday's win over the Brewers.

The second inning three-bagger was Wong's first of the season and his only hit of the game, as he finished 1-for-4. Wong also struck out once and scored once. He's now hitting .288/.350/.442. If Jason Heyward continues to scuffle, Wong could see time in the two-hole. As of now, he's hitting sixth for yet another strong Cardinals team.

Kolten Wong went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a two-run home run Wednesday in a win over the Nationals.

Wong padded the Cardinals' lead to 3-0 with a second-inning home run off of Doug Fister. In the eighth, Wong broke a 5-5 tie with an RBI double to left field off of Blake Treinen. Wong entered Tuesday's game with a .589 OPS before having a three-hit night and added another on Wednesday, bringing his slash line up to .325/.396/.475.

Kolten Wong is not in the Cardinals starting lineup on Saturday.

It's nothing more than a day of rest for Wong who should be back in there for Sunday's series finale. Pete Kozma will make his first start of the season in his place and will bat eighth against opposing right-hander Homer Bailey.

Kolten Wong delivered his second straight two-hit game and scored twice Wednesday against the Mets.

Finally getting it together in the final week of the spring, Wong has raised his average from .139 to .214 by going 4-for-6 the last two days.
Apr 1 - 5:26 PM

Kolten Wong went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks Monday, leaving him with a .139 average this spring.

Well, Wong hit .375 last spring and then struggles so much in April that the Cardinals chose to send him down. Maybe it'll work out the other way this year. Wong's power-speed combination makes him very intriguing as a fantasy second baseman this year, but it's worth noting that he'll likely open up as a No. 8 hitter, which is going to really hurt his run and RBI numbers.
Mar 30 - 5:16 PM

Kolten Wong went 2-for-4 with a double and a homer in the Cardinals' loss to the Giants in Wednesday's NLCS Game 4.

As he's been all series, Wong was a catalyst for the Cards' offense Wednesday. He led off the top of the second inning with a double off center fielder Gregor Blanco's glove, coming around to score on an A.J. Pierzynski single. The little man did it himself in the third, smashing a Ryan Vogelsong pitch over the right field wall for his second homer of the series. Wong is hitting .357 with two doubles, a triple, two homers and four RBI through four games of the NLCS.

Kolten Wong played the role of hero for the Cardinals on Sunday, blasting a walkoff solo home run off Sergio Romo to power his squad to a 5-4 victory over the Giants in Game 2 of the NLCS.

In a game where the Cardinals lost their emotional leader Yadier Molina to an oblique injury, and closer Trevor Rosenthal suffered a blown save in the top half of the ninth inning, they were desperate for some magic in the bottom half of the inning. Wong obliged, lining the second pitch he saw over the wall in right field to deliver the Cardinals the much-needed victory to even the series at one game apiece as the series shifts to San Francisco for Game 3.

Kolten Wong will bat eighth in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Wong hit the go-ahead two-run homer in Monday's Game 3 victory, but Cardinals manager Mike Matheny isn't making any changes to his lineup for Game 4: Matt Carpenter 3B, Randal Grichuk RF, Matt Holliday LF, Jhonny Peralta SS, Matt Adams 1B, Yadier Molina C, Jon Jay CF, Wong 2B, Shelby Miller SP.

Kolten Wong belted a go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh inning of Monday's victory over the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLDS.

Scott Elbert was the first reliever out of the Dodgers' bullpen, and he immediately gave up a double to Yadier Molina on his first pitch. After Jon Jay sacrificed Molina to third, Wong then put one over the right-field fence and into the Cardinals' bullpen. After sitting in favor of Pete Kozma in Game 1 versus Kershaw, it's possible Wong has now earned a crack at him in Game 4.

Kolten Wong went 3-for-3 with a home run in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Reds.

Wong's homer, a two-run shot, came in the third inning off of Reds' starter Mike Leake. The home run was Wong's 12th of the season and the two RBI put him up to 41. Wong also scored two runs and walked once in the win. While his overall season slash-line of .256/.297/.402 looks less than shiny, it's important to remember that Wong missed time this season with a variety of injuries. The second-baseman is one of the top prospects in the game and could be primed for a breakout campaign with the Cardinals in 2015. At the very least, he's already shown that he's an infielder with legitimate power in his bat.

Kolten Wong went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

Wong also stole his 20th base of the season. The second baseman is 6-for-16 with two doubles over his last four games, bringing his season line to .254/.293/.402. He's been able to contribute a little bit of everything over the course of his rookie season.

Kolten Wong is back in the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday.

Wong didn't start the last two games after banging his head on the ground on an attempted diving catch Sunday, though he was able to pinch-hit the last two days. He returns to a .251/.292/.402 batting line with 11 homers and 19 stolen bases.

Kolten Wong (neck) struck out as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night against the Pirates.

Wong was held out of the Cardinals' lineup for the second straight game after straining his neck on a diving catch attempt Sunday against the Cubs. He hit a big game-tying pinch-hit two-run homer on Monday and should return to full-time action at some point this week.
