Player Outlook
It was Reese McGuire starting the first two games of the season at catcher for the Red Sox, but Connor Wong quickly wrestled the job away from him and wound up easily pacing the club with 105 starts behind the plate. Wong had an above-average barrel rate in the 56th percentile and a max exit velocity in the 88th percentile, so he's capable of making hard contact. The 27-year-old is also a terrific athlete for a catcher, moonlighting some at second base while also stealing eight bases to go with a sprint speed in the 76th percentile. Wong's plate discipline (33.3 percent strikeout rate, 5.5 percent walk rate) is dreadful, though, and it's been that way dating back to the minors. Double digits in home runs and stolen bases are possible if he gets regular playing time in 2024, but Wong's xBA of .208, not his actual .235 average, is probably closer to what we should expect.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Homer, three runs scored in win

    Wong went 2-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Thursday's 7-0 win over the Athletics. Wong walked and scored in the first inning, belted a solo home run in the third, then singled and scored on Masataka Yoshida's home run in the sixth. Wong's home run was his eighth in 68 games, one shy of the career-high nine he hit in 2023 over 126 games. The catcher is having a career year; his .826 OPS in 2024 is 156 points higher than what it was over his first three MLB seasons.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Hit streak at 17 games

    Wong went 2-for-5 with a stolen base in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Marlins. The backstop continued his breakout campaign, hitting safely in his 17th straight game while swiping his fourth bag of the year. Wong is slashing .333/.405/.470 during his hit streak, the longest by a Boston catcher since Victor Martinez put together a 25-game streak in 2009. The only other catcher in Red Sox history with a hitting streak of 17 games or longer is Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk, who reached that number twice between the 1975 and 1976 seasons.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Returns to action

    Wong started at catcher and went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's 9-2 loss to the Padres. Wong made his first start since coming off the paternity list Thursday and extended a hit streak to 14 games (18-for-52, .346). Three months into the season and Wong is maintaining a .328 average, nearly 100 points higher than his career average entering 2024 (.232). Red Sox hitting coach Pete Fatse credits Wong being more direct with his swing path which has led to more zone contact, per Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe. The catcher's zone-contact percentage is up from 76.2 last season to 83.2 in 2024. He's also chasing less this season.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Returns from paternity list

    The Red Sox reinstated Wong (personal) from the paternity list Thursday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. Wong missed the maximum three games while on paternity leave and will rejoin the Red Sox ahead of Friday's series opener versus the Padres. Tyler Heineman was optioned to Triple-A Worcester to clear room on the active roster for Wong, who should settle back in as Boston's No. 1 catcher while Reese McGuire serves as the backup.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Homers in loss

    Wong went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 loss to Cincinnati. Wong belted a solo home run in the second inning, his sixth of the season, and extended a hitting streak to 11 games (15-for-39). He's batting .335/.397/.471 for the season. There's no dramatic changes in his contact metrics to explain his breakout, and the BABIP (.395) warning signs are still there, but Wong has managed to avoid regression so far.

  • Red Sox's Connor Wong: Big night in win

    Wong went 3-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 6-2 win over San Francisco.

The catcher, who recorded his eighth multi-hit game Wednesday, is slashing .366/.367/.620 through 75 plate appearances. Those numbers are sure to correct -- a .412 BABIP indicates that -- but Wong has improved his contact rate on pitches in the zone, jumping up to 84.2 percent compared to 74.3 percent in 2023.
