  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Swipes first bag, knocks in run

    Wong went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and an RBI in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Orioles.

    Wong swiped his first bag of the season in the fifth inning then produced an insurance run with an eighth-inning single. The catcher, who batted .235 last season, continued a breakout at the dish and is batting .324 with an .836 OPS over 136 plate appearances. A .364 BABIP portends a correction is coming, but Wong is making more consistent contact and nearly halved his strikeout percentage, from 33.3 percent in 2023 to 17.6 percent in 2024.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: On bench Tuesday

    Wong is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Atlanta, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    It's the second straight game on the bench for Wong, which is surprising given he's been one of the most productive catchers in baseball with a .950 OPS. Reese McGuire went 2-for-4 with a double and stolen base Sunday and is making his second consecutive start behind the plate Tuesday.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Big night in win

    Wong went 3-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 6-2 win over San Francisco.

    Wong has been a consistent producer at the dish, never going more than one game without a hit. The catcher, who recorded his eighth multi-hit game Wednesday, is slashing .366/.367/.620 through 75 plate appearances. Those numbers are sure to correct -- a .412 BABIP indicates that -- but Wong has improved his contact rate on pitches in the zone, jumping up to 84.2 percent compared to 74.3 percent in 2023.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Reclaims top catching job

    Wong will start at catcher and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Guardians, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    The Red Sox will include Wong in the starting nine for the seventh time in eight games, with both of his last two starts having come against right-handed pitching. The right-handed-hitting Wong appeared to have fallen into the short side of a catching platoon with the lefty-hitting Reese McGuire earlier in the season, but Wong since looks to have re-emerged as the clear No. 1 option. With Wong maintaining an excellent .320/.327/.520 slash line with three home runs and eight RBI and his playing time now on the rise, he might be worth a look in leagues where he's still on the waiver wire.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Gets rest after big game

    Wong is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Guardians.

    Wong will get a breather for the day game after he powered the Red Sox to an 8-0 win Wednesday by going 4-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI while also reaching base on a hit by pitch. Reese McGuire will get the nod behind the plate Thursday, but the hot-hitting Wong appears to have clearly supplanted him as the Red Sox's preferred option at catcher.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Four hits, two homers in win

    Wong went 4-for-4 with a pair of homers and three total RBI in Wednesday's 8-0 victory over the Guardians.

    It's the second two-homer game of Wong's career while his four hits matched a personal best. The 27-year-old catcher has been on fire lately, going 13-for-31 with four home runs in his last eight games while taking over the primary catching job in Boston. Wong's now slashing a solid .320/.327/.520 with three home runs (six shy of a career high), eight RBI and five runs scored across 51 plate appearances to open the campaign.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Pops solo homer in win

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Slugs second homer

    Wong went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 10-7 extra-innings loss to the Guardians.

    The 27-year-old has ceded more work than expected to Reese McGuire early in the season, but the arrangement seems to be working for both backstops. Through 10 games, Wong is batting a blistering .355 (11-for-31) with a double, two homers, three runs and seven RBI, and his share of the playing time could be creeping back up as he's started three of the last five games, with Tuesday's start coming against right-hander Tanner Bibee.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Swats pinch hit homer

    Wong entered as a pinch hitter and went 1-for-1 with a solo home run in Thursday's 9-4 extra-inning loss to the Orioles.

    Wong's home run tied the game in the eighth inning, setting up the extra frame. He remained in the game to play second base and was eventually moved behind the plate when starting backstop Reese McGuire was ejected for arguing a called strike. The catching split thus far has favored McGuire, who has eight starts and 33 plate appearances compared to Wong's five starts and 20 PAs.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Sitting against righty

    Wong isn't in the Red Sox's lineup Friday against the Mariners, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Homers in two straight

    Wong started at catcher and went 2-for-3 with with a two-run home run in Monday's spring game against the Twins.

    Wong went deep for the second time in as many games, upping his spring line to .433/.469/.833 with eight extra-base hits and eight RBI over 30 Grapefruit League at-bats. The spring production is a sign that offseason adjustments have worked, per Ian Browne of MLB.com. "He's made adjustments," manager Alex Cora said. "It started towards the end of the [2023] season. And in the offseason, [hitting coach] Pete [Fatse] came down here to Fort Myers. They started cleaning up a few things with the leg kick and all that." Wong said he's shorter to the baseball and trying to eliminate the swing-and-miss and choose better pitches overall. In 2023, Wong struck out 134 times in 403 plate appearances (33.3 K%).
