Wong was added to the Red Sox's 60-man player pool.

Wong, who is not on the 40-man roster, joins Boston's player pool as one of five catchers. He has a mere 40 games of experience above High-A, so it's not expected that the 24-year-old native of Houston (Tex.) will ever see time in the majors in 2020. There is a lot of swing-and-miss in Wong, who struck out 30.8 percent of the time in 2019, although he carried an .878 OPS and hit 24 home runs in two stops. The power tool is better than the hit tool at this stage of his development, and Wong needs to make more consistent contact against advanced pitching in the upper levels of the minors.
