How about Kolten Wong?! Finally, we’re seeing the version of the young second baseman that we all expected hoped for. Since he rejoined the team (and overcame the ill-timed stomach bug that delayed his first game back), he’s done nothing but collect five hits (including two bunt base hits in one game and a bases-clearing double on Sunday), drive in three runs while scoring three...
