Wong (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday. Wong will wind up missing two weeks with a strained left oblique. He returns in time for the second game a four-game series at Coors Field and will lead off and play second base Friday.
Wong (oblique) will go through a full workout Thursday in hopes that he could be reinstated from the injured list Friday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Although Wong won't be available for Thursday's series opener in Colorado, manager Craig Counsell is optimistic the second baseman could return if he feels good after the workout. The 30-year-old has been on the injured list since June 4 but should reclaim his starting job at second base and hit atop the Brewers' lineup once he's officially activated.
Wong (oblique) will likely be activated during the upcoming series against the Rockies, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The series runs from Thursday through Sunday, so there is still some uncertainty about Wong's exact return date. He was hitting well before the injury, going 7-for-22 with two homers and two doubles in his last six games, and Wong will likely be near the top of Milwaukee's lineup once activated.
Wong (oblique) took batting practice on the field Monday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. The 30-year-old has been sidelined nearly two weeks with a strained left oblique, and his return to full swings is a significant step in his rehab work. It was previously reported Wong is expected to be activated during the upcoming seven-game road trip, which runs Thursday through next Wednesday, and that timeline is feasible if he remains on his current progression.
Wong (oblique) is expected to return during the Brewers' next road trip, which begins June 17 in Colorado and runs through June 23 in Arizona, Ryan Herrera of MLB.com reports. A return in Coors Field would certainly be welcomed by those who have Wong in leagues with mid-week substitutions or daily roster moves. He has been out since June 3 with a left oblique strain. Wong started hitting off a tee June 10.
