Teams are split on Oregon State shortstop Joey Wong, a three-year starter and son of a former Beavers assistant coach. Those who like him call him "a ballplayer" and admit he's an acquired taste. "You can't appreciate Joey Wong from just one game," an American League scout said. "You have to see him for several games to fully appreciate what kind of player he is." Wong's detractors see him as a small singles hitter with no plus tools and no projection who will have to move to second base. He'd be a better prospect if he had more speed. His results also aren't overwhelming: Wong hit just .262/.366/.342 over 202 at-bats this season, and .342 is also his career slugging percentage.
