Wong is expected to undergo an MRI in the coming days to determine if he will require offseason knee surgery, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Wong is reportedly dealing with loose cartilage in his knee, but the parties involved are still unsure whether he should undergo surgery. Things should clear up on this front once he gets the MRI in the next few days.
Wong is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs. With lefty Mike Montgomery taking the hill for the regular season finale, Wong will once again retreat to the bench for a day off. He'll likely finish his season with a .249/.332/.388 slash line to go with nine homers and 38 RBI. Yairo Munoz will replace him at the keystone Sunday.
Wong is not in the lineup against the Cubs on Saturday. Yairo Munoz will give Wong a spell with southpaw Cole Hamels on the bump for Chicago. Look for Wong to be utilized off the bench after going 2-for-2 with a double and a walk during Friday's loss.
Wong (hamstring) went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers. Wong had returned from a two-game absence in a pinch-hit capacity Monday, but Tuesday marked his first start since his latest bout with his problematic hamstrings. The second baseman reportedly may also need offseason knee surgery to remove floating cartilage in his left knee, so his health remains an ongoing challenge. However, his improved offensive profile over the second half of the season offers plenty of reason for optimism, as Wong's .314 average since the Midsummer Classic qualifies as a 101-point improvement over the .213 figure he generated prior to the All-Star break.
Wong (hamstring) is starting at second base and hitting eighth Tuesday against the Brewers. As expected, Wong is back in action after missing three starts with a hamstring injury. He was able to pinch hit in Monday's series opener. Wong owns a .300/.391/.425 line through 12 games in September and will look to keep it up and close out the regular season on a high note.
