Larry, the prospect of trading St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong is something that has been coming up since the off season.  The time to trade him was before the season.  No team will take him now and he has become somewhat worthless in a trade market.Due to his recent time spent on the DL and history of sub par play, he just doesn’t provide any team with enough value to be worth it.  Frankly, even without the short DL stint he has not played to his potential.  He seems to have stalled from what everyone thought he would be.

Wong has been in the league since he was 22 in the year 2013.  In that time he has carried a .253 batting average.  Even with his .298 this year, Wong is not going to have the price tag for the St. Louis Cardinals to give away.
