Kolten Wong, the future second baseman for the Cardinals, took part in the 2013 Futures Game in New York last week and went 1-for-2 with a single in the fifth inning and a stolen base to boot.
However, Wong has struggled of late for Triple-A Memphis. Over his last four games, Wong is hitting a flimsy .133 with two runs, three walks, a strikeout and a stolen base. In his last 10 games, Wong is hitting just .175.
Moreover, since hitting .375 for the month of May, Wong’s averaged dipped to .276 in June and .175 in July.
Wong needs to rediscover his swing and begin punishing opposing pitchers like he did at season’s start.
