Kolten Wong looking to prove the doubters wrong
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has a chip on his shoulder coming into the spring, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Wong said he was motivated after struggling to perform in a part-time role last year. Wong hit just .153 over 59 at-bats during the regular season. He admitted not being a full-time player was tough. "That’s something I’d never done before," Wong said. "I tried my best to do as much as I could off the bench. And, unfortunately, I didn’t do too well."

Wong said talking to Allen Craig helped him focus last season. Craig had once been in a similar role with the club, but eventually broke out in a full-time role. Wong will be looking to do the same this season. "I’m definitely going to prove everyone wrong. I worked so hard with my dad this offseason (in Hawaii) that, for me to fail, it’s going to take a lot."

Wong is expected to open the year as the team's starter at second base.

Kolten Wong 'super excited' to show he's ready for everyday role
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It's easy to tell Cardinals prospect Kolten Wong is eager for the start spring training and show everyone he's ready to take over as the team's starting second baseman.

"I'm super excited," Wong told MLB.com. "Last year, I got the chance to see what those guys got to experience who play every day. I hope I get the chance this year to go as far as we did last year.

"My job [last year] was to pinch-run, pinch-hit once in a while. I wanted to be sure I knew how to approach that. Now that I'm getting a chance to start, I want to make the most of it."

Although Wong hit .301 with a .365 on-base percentage and .811 OPS in 280 minor-league games, he hit .153 in 32 regular-season games and .167 in seven postseason games after his promotion to the majors last season. Though, Wong is hopeful with everyday at-bats that he will return to the hitter he was in the minors.

"When I was up there, I could tell my swing was getting a little long," Wong said. "I usually have a short, compact swing. My swing was either getting longer or the ball was getting on me quicker. I worked this offseason on shortening my swing. Hopefully time and playing every day will help."
