Wong (triceps) has been able to take full-strength swings and make throws during his recovery but is still feeling some pain in his arm, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
With some lingering discomfort in his right arm, Wong may not be deemed ready to begin his rehab assignment during the middle of this week as originally expected. The 26-year-old explained that the team wants him to be "pain free, even when resting" before he returns to any kind of game action.
Wong (triceps) is expected to begin his rehab assignment mid-week and could be activated by next weekend, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Wong appears to be progressing well in his recovery, and his rehab assignment would presumably last just a couple of games under the current projected timetable. The 26-year-old has been a key offensive component for the Cardinals this season but has been hampered by injuries, with his current disabled list stint serving as his second of the campaign.
Wong (triceps) hopes to begin a minor-league rehabilitation assignment next weekend, Mitchell Forde of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "I'm pretty close," Wong said. "We're just trying to make sure there's no pain. I tried to come back quick the last time and got back on the DL."
Wong lasted six games after coming off an earlier DL stint due to an elbow injury before getting sidelined again with a right triceps strain. He excelled during his brief return, hitting safely in all six contests and tallying multi-hit efforts in three of them. That offensive burst pushed his season line to an impressive .301/.393/.444, making Wong one of the Cardinals' most effective offensive weapons of the season's first half.
Wong was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right triceps strain, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
This is another tough break for Wong, who was enjoying his best offensive season to date before landing on the disabled list for the second time in less than a month. A timetable for his return hasn't been hashed out yet, but given the injury is to his throwing arm, this could require a longer stint on the disabled list than his first injury. In the meantime, Paul DeJong was recalled from Triple-A Memphis to take his spot on the roster, and he should see the bulk of time at second base in Wong's place, though Greg Garcia could also get some looks.
Wong was prematurely lifted from Wednesday's game against the Brewers with right forearm tightness, David Solomon of 550 KTRS reports.
Wong was 1-for-2 with an RBI double and a run scored before being replace by Greg Garcia in the sixth inning. This is a tough break for Wong, who returned from the DL just a week ago. The severity of the injury isn't known at this point, but his condition should be updated once he is evaluated further Thursday.
