3. Kolten Wong

The 33-year-old second baseman was with the Baltimore Orioles in Spring Training but was granted a release from his contract last weekend as he had an opt-out in his minor-league deal with the team.

Wong spent the latter half of last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers after being released by the Seattle Mariners in August. The veteran infielder struggled at the plate with Seattle, slashing .165/.241/.227 with two home runs and 19 RBI (67 games).

The 33-year-old Wong showed some slight improvement at the plate with Los Angeles, slashing .300/.353/.500 with two home runs and 8 RBI in a limited sample size (20 games). However, it wasn’t enough to keep him on the roster.

Nonetheless, it won’t be a surprise to see Wong land on another roster this season despite hitting .200 with a home run and four RBI. However, he might have to take a minor-league deal and dominate the Triple-A level to get back to the majors.
