    Wong is the younger brother of Cardinals second base prospect Kolten Wong, a first-round pick out of Hawaii in 2011. With a similar build at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, Kean is seen as a more advanced hitter than Kolten was coming out of high school. They both have compact lefthanded swings, a great approach at the plate and good feel for the barrel. Kean, who is tightly wound and has already filled out, also offers a bit more power and could hit 10-15 home runs annually. Kolten is a little quicker and better defensively, and some scouts wonder whether Kean would be better at third base. He is a fringy runner. Like Kolten, Kean is a baseball rat and could be signed away from his commitment to Hawaii if he goes in the top six rounds.
