2B - MIL - IL10
Sun, 4/11 2:15pm
The Brewers placed 2B Kolten Wong on the 10-day IL with an oblique injury.
Wong first suffered the injury earlier this week and returned to the lineup only to re-aggravate the issue. Jace Peterson is reportedly being called up in a corresponding move.
Kolten Wong was removed from Thursday's game against the Cardinals due to an oblique injury.
Wong missed Wednesday's game with the injury but returned today and evidently suffered a re-aggravation. We'll have to see if this winds up resulting in an IL stint for Wong.
Brewers 2B Kolten Wong (oblique) has returned to Thursday's lineup.
Wong didn't play on Wednesday but it was always considered a minor issue. He's leading off and playing second base against the Cardinals today.
Brewers 2B Kolten Wong is absent from Wednesday's lineup due to oblique tightness.
The Brewers are viewing it as a day-to-day situation for Wong. Daniel Robertson is playing second base and hitting eighth in his place today.
Kolten Wong agrees to a multi-year deal with the Milwaukee Brewers, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. The agreement is a two-year deal worth $18 million along with a club option.
Wong is looking to make a big impact with the Brewers. Wong is very versatile, playing games at 2B, SS, and CF in his career with the St. Louis Cardinals. However, his premium defense will likely keep him in the lineup as the team’s everyday second baseman. This means Keston Hiura will likely need to shift over to first base. It’s an odd setup, so we’ll see what the Brewers say about it moving forward.
