Wong made the Red Sox's wild-card roster, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

The Red Sox elected to go with three catchers rather than carry a 13th pitcher or an additional option elsewhere on the field. Wong's addition allows the team to get both Kevin Plawecki and Christian Vazquez into the game if necessary while still having cover behind the plate in the event of an injury, but it's unlikely he sees the field if everyone stays healthy.
