Connor Wong

Has been traded to the Red Sox in the Mookie Betts deal, if it goes through this time. This might work out well for him since he had two or three young catchers ahead of him in the Dodger system.

The Athletic’s story on the re-done deal had a paragraph about him. I’ll post it since it’s just a couple of sentences and hopefully OK to do so.

Connor Wong is an unusual kind of utility player because he can catch well enough to do it on more than an emergency basis, but he can move to other positions, including second or third base, both of which he’s played a little bit so far in the minors. He’s power over hit right now, with swing-and-miss a real problem for him going back to his time at the University of Houston, but as the 26th man on a major-league roster, he could be quite valuable for his ability to back up at least three positions — and there’s no reason he couldn’t play the corner outfield spots — or even to serve as a regular catcher on a bad team.
