  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Resting against lefty

    Wong is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    Wong made his return from a stint on the injured list due to a calf issue in Tuesday's 5-3 win, starting at second base while going 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and two runs. He should serve as Milwaukee's primary option at the keystone moving forward, though the lefty-hitting Wong will occasionally take a seat against left-handed starting pitchers. With southpaw Jalen Beeks on the hill for Tampa Bay in a day game after a night game, manager Craig Counsell decided it was a good opportunity to rest Wong.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Scores twice in return

    Wong (calf) went 1-for-3 with two runs scored, a double and a walk in a 5-3 win Tuesday in Tampa Bay.

    In his first game since June 7, Wong doubled and scored in the sixth and walked and scored in the eighth. Before his stint on the injured list, he had primarily been hitting first but he hit fifth in Tuesday's contest. For the season, he's produced a .717 OPS, just a shade below his .726 career mark.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Activated, starting Tuesday

    The Brewers reinstated Wong (calf) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday. He'll start at second base and bat fifth in the series opener with the Rays.

    Luis Urias had been serving as the primary replacement at second base while Wong was sidelined, but he'll likely start almost exclusively at third base moving forward now that the two-time Gold Glove Award winner is back from the IL. Wong, who had been on the shelf since June 7 with a strained right calf, is hitting .228 with five home runs and eight stolen bases across 209 plate appearances on the season.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Expected to return Tuesday

    Wong (calf) is expected to be reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Wong will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Wisconsin on Saturday, and he's expected to appear in two minor-league games prior to joining the Brewers to begin their series in Tampa. The 31-year-old hasn't played for the Brewers since June 7 but will reclaim his role as the team's primary second baseman once he's ultimately activated.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Rehab stint on tap

    Wong (calf) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment this weekend, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Wong suffered a setback with his strained right calf last weekend, but it apparently wasn't major issue as he's now been cleared for game action. The 31-year-old has been sidelined by the injury since June 7, so he should be ready to reinstated from the injured list sometime next week after appearing in a few games in the minors.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Takes part in agility work

    Wong (calf) was spotted Thursday taking part in agility drills in the outfield, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The activity is another minor step forward for Wong, who was seen swinging a bat in the cage earlier this week but has yet to advance to on-field batting practice or running the bases since landing on the injured list June 11 with a right calf strain. Wong is without a clear timeline for a return and is unlikely to make it back from the IL before the end of the month.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Return not imminent

    Wong (calf) took some swings in the cage Tuesday but isn't expected to resuming hitting or running on the field during the current series against the Cardinals, which ends Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    The veteran second baseman suffered a setback in his recovery from a strained right calf over the weekend, and he's essentially "starting the process over," per McCalvy. Wong is already eligible to return from the 10-day injured list, but he's likely to be sidelined for at least another week.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Suffers setback

    Wong (calf) suffered a setback in his recovery and won't be activated by the start of the Brewers' upcoming homestead against the Cardinals that begins Monday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Wong initially hoped to return from the 10-day injured list as early as Saturday, but he'll be unable to do so following his setback. It's not yet clear when the 31-year-old will be able to return to game action, but Luis Urias should continue to see most of the playing time at second base while Jace Peterson sees additional playing time at the hot corner in Wong's absence.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Targeting Saturday return

    Wong (calf) hopes to return from the 10-day injured list when first eligible Saturday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran second baseman has been unavailable due to calf soreness since June 7, but he expects to spend only the 10-day minimum on the shelf. Luis Urias has seen most of the action at second base with Wong sidelined, with Jace Peterson operating as the primary third baseman.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Placed on injured list

    Wong was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right calf strain.

    Wong has not played since leaving Tuesday's game with a sore calf, and the Brewers ultimately decided to place him on the injured list to free up a roster spot. The move was backdated to Wednesday, so he will be eligible to be activated June 18.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Wong (calf) isn't starting Wednesday against the Phillies.

    Wong exited Tuesday's game against Philadelphia due to right calf discomfort, and he'll be out of the lineup for at least one matchup. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available off the bench, but Luis Urias will shift to second base while Jace Peterson starts at the hot corner Wednesday.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Leaves with calf injury

    Wong was removed from Tuesday's game against the Phillies with right calf discomfort, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    Wong went 0-for-1 before being replaced in the field for the top of the fourth inning. The 31-year-old missed one game last week after being hit by a pitch in the right calf, and it appears he's still having some issues in that area.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Clubs pair of homers

    Wong went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's 6-4 extra-inning loss to the Padres.

    Wong started the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot, and he added a game-tying two-run blast in the eighth. The second baseman hadn't homered since May 15, picking up just two doubles and a triple among 11 hits in 18 games since then prior to Sunday. He's up to a .229/.322/.391 slash line with five homers, 17 RBI, 26 runs scored, eight stolen bases, eight doubles and three triples through 51 contests. Wong continues to bat leadoff regularly versus right-handed pitchers, though he also sees a fair amount of playing time deeper down the lineup versus lefties.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Ready to play Wednesday

    Wong (calf) is starting at second base and batting leadoff Wednesday against the Cubs.

    The veteran second baseman sat out Tuesday's contest after being hit by a pitch in the right calf during Monday's nightcap, but his quick return to the lineup confirms the injury to be a minor issue. Wong finished May on a cold streak, going 6-for-35 with a double, five walks and two runs in his last 10 games.

  • Brewers' Kolten Wong: Sitting with calf issue

    Wong is dealing with a right calf injury and is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Wong suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch during Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader, and he'll sit out Tuesday while receiving treatment. The 31-year-old hopes to be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale, so the injury doesn't appear to be a serious concern. Keston Hiura will man the keystone in Wong's place.
