The Pittsburgh Pirates announced that third baseman Jung Ho Kang will join the team tomorrow in Cincinnati for the final three games of the season.
After missing all of last season and the beginning of this year due to his legal issues in South Korea, Kang was playing with Indianapolis early last month when he suffered a wrist injury. At the time, he had a .572 OPS in nine games with the Indians. That was after posting a 1.406 OPS in seven games with Bradenton. Kang has been working out down at Pirate City in the Fall Instructional League for the last two weeks, playing his final game this afternoon.
ANNOUNCED: Infielder Jung Ho Kang is expected to join the Pirates Friday and will be active for the games in Cincinnati over the weekend.
