Wong caught some in high school but came to Houston as a shortstop and started at the position as a freshman. He moved back behind the plate as a sophomore to help the Cougars fill a hole and has grown into the position. Wong has worked hard to become a capable catcher, especially focusing on blocking. But he has also continued to play other positions, including shortstop, third base and the outfield, giving him defensive versatility reminiscent of Rockies catcher/infielder Tony Wolters. He has an above-average arm but is still learning how to control the running game. While Wong has grown defensively, he has also continued to develop offensively. The righthanded hitter has shown both power and speed this spring, and had 10 home runs and 20 stolen bases in mid-May. Wong's wide-ranging tool set makes him tough to profile, but makes for an intriguing, versatile package.
