Wong missed two weeks earlier this month with an oblique injury, but he has been sizzling since being activated from the injured list Friday, going 7-for-13 (.538) with four extra-base hits in the Brewers' three-game weekend series with the Cubs.

Wong (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Wong has been on the injured list since April 10 with an oblique issue, but he'll rejoin the active roster Friday and is expected to start against the Cubs.

Wong was sent to the 10-day injured list April 10 with oblique soreness, but he's expected to be activated from the injured list later in the week, likely during Milwaukee's upcoming series with the Cubs. He's off to a slow start to the 2021 campaign, going just 2-for-19 with five walks in seven contests.
Wong (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Wong missed Wednesday's game against the Cubs due to oblique tightness and was removed in the seventh inning of Thursday's matchup due to the same issue. Daniel Robertson and Luis Urias could see increased time at second base while Wong recovers. Jace Peterson was recalled by Milwaukee in a corresponding move.
Wong exited Thursday's game against the Cardinals after aggravating his oblique injury, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Wong was removed in the seventh inning, one day after missing Wednesday's game with the same issue. He will be evaluated Friday, and manager Craig Counsell noted that time on the injured list would be a possibility -- though not a certainty -- for Wong. Daniel Robertson and Dee Strange-Gordon are the likeliest candidates to pick up playing time at second base if Wong is forced to miss further game action.
Wong was pulled early from Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Wong was initially slated to play second base and lead off in Wednesday's contest, but Daniel Robertson will take over at the keystone while Lorenzo Cain moves to the top of the order. It's not yet clear whether Wong's removal from the lineup is due to an injury.
Wong went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs in Tuesday's spring game against the Dodgers.
Wong's home run came off a lefty -- quite a talented one in Clayton Kershaw -- on the first pitch of the game. Wong figures to see quite a few first pitches this season, as he has hit leadoff in every game he has appeared in this spring. He will almost surely open the regular season at the top of the order against right-handed starters, and he may do the same against southpaws, as he posted a .370 OBP last year against lefties and Lorenzo Cain (quad) is not a lock to be ready for Opening Day.
Wong signed a two-year, $18 million contract with the Brewers on Wednesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Wong and the Brewers engaged in serious talks recently, and the two sides were able to reach an agreement Wednesday. The contract contains an $8 million club option for 2023. Wong spent the first eight years of his career in St. Louis and slashed .265/.350/.326 with one home run, 16 RBI and five stolen bases over 53 games in 2020. He'll likely take over at second base for the Brewers, while Keston Hiura should shift to first base.
President John Mozeliak announced Wednesday the Cardinals declined Wong's $12.5 million club option for 2021, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
The 30-year-old has spent the entirety of his career with the Cardinals since being selected during the first round of the 2011 draft, but he'll head to free agency with the team deciding to pay the $1 million buyout rather than pick up the 2021 option. Wong had a career-worst .676 OPS with only seven extra-base hits in 208 plate appearances during the shortened season, though he continues to be a plus-defender at second base after winning the Gold Glove in 2019. Mozeliak indicated the door is open for Wong to return to St. Louis, but for now, he'll hit the open market.
Wong went 1-for-4 with a home run and four RBI during Thursday's 11-9 loss to the Padres.
The 29-year-old's only hit of the game was a two-run homer during the second inning, but he also drove in a pair of runs via a groundout and a sacrifice fly. Wong is 2-for-10 with one homer, one double and four RBI through the first two games of the series after finishing the regular season on a seven-game hit streak (.346 average).

The veteran leadoff man came through with his second three-bagger of the season in the second inning, plating Matt Wieters with the Cardinals' third run of the night.

Wong went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in a win over the Royals on Tuesday. He was also caught stealing on one attempt.
The veteran second baseman was a constant presence on the bases in a productive effort, one that included his first multi-hit effort since Sept. 7. Wong hasn't done much more than hit singles in September -- he has just three doubles and one home run among his 25 hits this month -- but he's still been a key component of the Cardinals' offensive efforts with a .300 average and impressive .371 on-base percentage across his 94 plate appearances during that span.
Wong's absence from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates was merely precautionary and not an indication of a recurrence of the side issue that recently plagued him, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Manager Mike Shildt gave Wong a day off Sunday as a precautionary measure, noting it's a "balancing act" to afford key players down time while still pushing for a postseason spot down the stretch. Wong had managed the side issue while reportedly taping up heavily over the last four games, and after Sunday's rest, he could well be back in the lineup for the beginning of a three-game series against the Royals on Monday.
