St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong has been hitting the ball noticeably stronger since recovering from the shoulder bruise that put him on the disabled list in June. "You can see my swing is a lot more aggressive now than it was," Wong said. "Knowing that I can swing the bat without having any pain brings a little calmness."
Fantasy Tip: This is a good sign for Wong, who could be in for a big second half. He's always been known for his contact prowess on the farm and should have every chance to aid fantasy players as at least a deep-league MI.

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a bruised shoulder around the rotator cuff area, and, according to manager Mike Matheny, an MRI showed no structural damage. Wong received an injection to combat swelling.
