St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is considered an everyday starter by manager Mike Matheny, and the Cards did not sign a specific player to compete with him for playing time and at-bats. "We believe that he can handle that position every day. It's just taking a further step in our commitment to what we see in him and trusting that he's going to take a further step in the commitment to being the player we think he can be," Matheny said Tuesday, March 17.
Fantasy Tip: Wong boasts a nice power-speed combo, and he flashed significant upside in his rookie season last year. He is an excellent mid-round target after the top-tier second basemen come off the board and 40 combined home runs and stolen bases are in reach. With the guaranteed playing time, expect a big step forward in 2015.
