Same for 2nd base. How far out is Wong another year or more?
I'm really reluctant to get excited about Wong right now.
His hitting profile is starting to look a hell of a lot like Daniel Descalso's and Danny D has had the bat knocked out of his hands at this level. He's youngish, but he's not showing any real high-end tools down on the farm.
I'm thinking Wong is most likely to be little more than a placeholder.
EDIT: Presser had started so I just hit submit. I don't mean a placeholder, really. I mean just a decent player. He's not going to be much of a differencemaker out there, just a decent ballplayer.
