While Wong is eager to push his way back, Cardinals preach caution for injured infielder

CHICAGO — After confining most of his Cardinals-related activities to the tight quarters of an MRI on Friday, infielder Kolten Wong was back at the Friendly Confines early Saturday, on his toes, and ready to push.

Wong was diagnosed with a moderate tear of his left hamstring, he said, relaying the what he heard from the physicians who saw his MRI. He will meet with a team doctor in person on Saturday at the ballpark to get additional clarity on his injury, Wong said. While he waited he wanted to do something. Stretch. Jog. Move around. Prove he can contribute at some point, and some point soon.
