Wong isn't on Boston's ALDS roster, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Wong didn't appear off the bench in Tuesday's AL Wild Card Game against the Yankees, and he'll be unavailable for the series against the Rays. Christian Vazquez will serve as the primary catcher, while Kevin Plawecki will be available as depth.
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.
Wong was optioned to Triple-A Worcester following Friday night's game against Cleveland. The Red Sox continue to shuffle the roster with several players on the COVID-19 IL. They swapped out Wong for Taylor Motter, who can cover more spots amidst the ongoing absences. Christian Vazquez and Kevin Plawecki will be left as the only catchers on the depth chart, though chances are Wong rejoins them later this month.
Wong was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Wong was sent down in mid-August, but he'll rejoin the major-league roster to provide an extra bat off the bench after Jarren Duran (illness) joined a lengthy list of Red Sox on the COVID-19 IL. The 25-year-old catcher has gone 4-for-13 with a triple, a double, three runs and an RBI in six major-league appearances this year.
Wong was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports It's the third straight day with a roster transaction for Wong, and this time he'll return to Triple-A with Christian Vazquez and Kevin Plawecki healthy. Wong has appeared in six games for the Red Sox this season and is 4-for-13 with a triple, a double, an RBI and three runs.
