Prospect Spotlight

Wong is coming off his best offensive season as a pro (.282/.345/.406), can play multiple positions, and has experience in the upper-minors. Those factors led many to anticipate him being selected in this year’s Rule 5 Draft, though the Rays lucked out and were able to keep Wong in the organization without using a 40-Man spot.

Wong’s offensive game is centered around contact, able to control the zone and put the ball in play. His nine home runs and 23 doubles in 2018 were both career highs, though he likely lacks the power and overall offensive impact to¬†fit a regular role in a contending lineup.¬†Defensive versatility is the calling card, with time spent at nearly every position on the diamond. Wong profiles as a versatile super utility player and could contribute in the big leagues by next year.
