Mariners second baseman Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup Monday versus the Red Sox.
Wong got the nod at second base for Sunday's series finale with the D-backs and went hitless with a strikeout across four trips to the plate. The outing continued what has been a miserable season at the plate for the veteran as Wong has limped to a .165 average along with just two homers and one stolen base across 216 plate appearances.
Mariners second baseman Kolten Wong is back in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Twins.
Wong briefly played hero on Monday with a two-run, pinch-hit homer in the ninth to put his club ahead but the Twins rallied to tie it and win it in extra innings. The homer was just the second of the season for the veteran who has struggled to a disastrous .162 average alongside just one steal and a .473 OPS across 201 plate appearances.
Kolten Wong had a productive day at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an RBI single to help lead the Mariners to a 10-2 victory over the Yankees on Thursday.
Despite his struggles this season, Wong has shown some signs of life lately, hitting .333 over his last seven games.
