Red Sox's Connor Wong: Not on roster for ALDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: On wild-card roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Optioned down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Recalled by Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Quick return to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

The 25-year-old was sent to Triple-A on Saturday but will quickly rejoin the Red Sox with Josh Taylor (undisclosed) being placed on the COVID-19 IL. Christian Vazquez and Kevin Plawecki remain healthy, so Wong is unlikely to see much action during this stint in the majors.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Wong had been up since Wednesday to provide depth behind the plate while Christian Vazquez was on the bereavement list. He hit an RBI triple in his lone plate appearance and will now return to the minors, with Vazquez activated in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Called up Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

The 25-year-old was sent to the minors Sunday, but he'll return to the major-league club as catching depth after Christian Vazquez was placed on the bereavement list Wednesday. Wong has gone 3-for-12 with a double, two runs, a walk and seven strikeouts in five big-league appearances this year.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Wong was recalled from Worcester on Saturday and will return to the minors a day later. The 25-year-old has appeared in five games for Boston in 2021 and is 3-for-12 with a double, a walk and two runs.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Recalled by Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong was recalled by the Red Sox on Saturday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Wong reported to Triple-A Worcester at the end of July, but he'll rejoin the active roster after J.D. Martinez was placed on the COVID-19 injured list. The 25-year-old has gone 3-for-12 with a double, two runs and seven strikeouts in five major-league games this year.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox optioned Wong to Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Wong was the 27th man for Wednesday's doubleheader and stuck around for a couple more days, getting two plate appearances in Thursday's blowout loss. The rookie has appeared in five big-league games this season, going 3-for-12 with a walk and seven strikeouts.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Called up as 27th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong was called up by the Red Sox to serve as the 27th man in Wednesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Wong spent several weeks in the majors in late June and early July, and he appeared in four games. The 25-year-old went 3-for-11 with a double, two runs and seven strikeouts during that time. He isn't starting Wednesday's matinee against Toronto but should be available off the bench.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

The young catcher has spent the past couple weeks in the majors, but he'll head back to Triple-A with Christian Vazquez and Kevin Plawecki both healthy. Wong went 3-for-11 with a double, two runs and seven strikeouts in his first taste of big-league action.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Records first MLB hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong went 1-for-3 in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Yankees.

Wong made his first start in the majors and singled in his first at-bat, going the other way on a 3-2 pitch on the outside of the zone. More impressively, Wong guided Nathan Eovaldi through 7.2 dominant innings. The two are from the Houston area and worked out together during the COVID-19 shutdown in 2020, so there is some familiarity.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Scores as pinch runner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong entered the game as the runner on second base to start the 11th inning and scored the game-winning run in Tuesday's 9-5 win over Tampa Bay.

Wong served as a pinch runner for J.D. Martinez, who was the scheduled runner to start the 11th. He came around to score on Rafael Devers' two-run double. Wong is up with the Red Sox after the team placed Kevin Plawecki (hamstring) on the injured list.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Joining big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong has joined the Red Sox in Tampa and will be activated ahead of Tuesday's game against the Rays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republicane reports.

Wong will serve as Christian Vazquez's backup for the near future while Kevin Plawecki (hamstring) heads to the injured list. The 25-year-old Wong has yet to make his big-league debut and has struggled to a .148/.188/.246 line in 16 games for Triple-A Worcester this season.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Overcomes hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong has gone 1-for-11 with a double and an RBI in his three games at Triple-A Worcester since returning from a three-week absence due to a hamstring injury.

Worcester never placed Wong on the 7-day injured list, even though his recovery from the hamstring issue lingered longer than anticipated. The 25-year-old backstop maintains a .408 OPS on the season while striking out in 32 percent of his plate appearances.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Nursing hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong will be sidelined for a few days by a hamstring injury, Joe McDonald of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports.

The 24-year-old suffered the injury during Tuesday's contest and will be held out for at least a couple days. It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, so Wong should be able to avoid the injured list.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong's contract was purchased by the Red Sox on Friday.

Acquired from the Dodgers in the Mookie Betts trade, Wong is Boston's top catching prospect. He spent the summer at the alternate training site after finishing 2019 at Double-A, so he should open the year at Triple-A. Wong has significant right-handed power, but needs to improve his approach at the plate.

Red Sox's Connor Wong: Added to player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wong was added to the Red Sox's 60-man player pool.

Wong, who is not on the 40-man roster, joins Boston's player pool as one of five catchers. He has a mere 40 games of experience above High-A, so it's not expected that the 24-year-old native of Houston (Tex.) will ever see time in the majors in 2020. There is a lot of swing-and-miss in Wong, who struck out 30.8 percent of the time in 2019, although he carried an .878 OPS and hit 24 home runs in two stops. The power tool is better than the hit tool at this stage of his development, and Wong needs to make more consistent contact against advanced pitching in the upper levels of the minors.
