2015 Fantasy Outlook
The former fourth-round pick in 2013 spent all of last season at Low-A Bowling Green, where he was able to hit for average and little else. He is the younger brother of Kolten Wong, and while they both man the keystone and are similar in stature, Kean does not share his brother’s upside. In 454 plate appearances at Low-A, Wong slashed .306/.347/.370 with two home runs and 13 steals (in 20 attempts). The best argument for Wong developing into a big league regular is that he could have a similar makeup and hit tool, and will work as hard as possible to maximize his abilities, but even then he would likely be just a second division player. He is just 19 years old, so there is a chance he could develop some power down the line, but his distant ETA and low ceiling combine to make him unappealing in most dynasty leagues.
