A Video Comparison of Jung-ho Kang and Jordy Mercer at Shortstop

Tomorrow is the official reporting date for pitchers and catchers in Spring Training. Many of the Pittsburgh Pirates players have already reported to Bradenton, including several position players. There isn’t much going on yet at Pirate City, outside of bullpen sessions, batting practice, and fielding drills. However, today provided an opportunity to watch Jung-ho Kang and Jordy Mercer rotating at shortstop while fielding grounders. The videos of each player can be seen below for your comparison purposes.

For more coverage of Jung-ho Kang, check out last week’s video of him taking batting practice, and my story from Friday on how he wants to pave the way to MLB for other Korean league players.
