2B - SEA
Kolten Wong was traded to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Jesse Winker and Abraham Toro.
Wong has been on the Mariners' radar all offseason and is now part of the team. He will slot in as their everyday second baseman. Wong had a sneaky 15 home runs, 17 stolen base season in 2022.
The Mariners have checked in on the availability of Kolten Wong.
Wong has one year left on his current contract after the Brewers recently picked up his $10 million option for 2023. Wong hit .251/.339/.430 with a 116 wRC+ in 2022 and would fit in nicely at 2B in the Mariners lineup as they continue to go all in, having recently traded for Teoscar Hernandez as well.
The Milwaukee Brewers will pick up the $10 million team option on second basemen Kolten Wong.
The move comes as little surprise as Wong has made big strides with the bat to go along with his world-class defense in two seasons with the Brewers. In 2022, Wong hit 15 homers along with a career-best 116 wRC+ at the plate while stealing 17 bases. His defense regressed according to numerous advanced metrics last season but Wong remains a quality contributor on both sides of the ball.
