Cardinals | Kolten Wong to play regularly
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 14:25:12 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is starting at second base and hitting sixth in the lineup for his major league debut Friday, Aug. 16. 2B Matt Carpenter was moved to third base and 3B David Freese is on the bench. However, Wong won't play every day, but the team will try to get him frequent playing time. It could mean decreased time for Freese. A platoon situation could emerge between Freese, who hits right-handed, and the left-handed hitting Wong. "All we're trying to do is maximize what we have," manager Mike Matheny said. "Kolten has been our most consistent guy in Triple-A. ... And in order to use him, we're going to have to be creative and guys are going to have to understand that we're trying to help our club as a whole." Wong won't take over the leadoff spot from Carpenter when he's in the lineup. Wong was hitting .303 with a .369 on-base percentage and 20 stolen bases at Triple-A Memphis.
