MLB FREE AGENT SIGNING

Pittsburgh Pirates | Depth Chart | Projected Payroll

  • Jung Ho Kang, 3B: Agreed to one-year, $3MM contract.

 

ROSTER IMPACT

If Kang, who turns 32 in April, can return to his 2015-16 form when he slashed .273/.355/.483 with 36 homers for the Pirates, he could cut into Colin Moran‘s playing time at the hot corner. As things stand, he’ll need to prove he’s good enough to make the 25-man roster out of Spring Training since he’s barely played in the past two years. In all likelihood, he’ll platoon with Moran and give the Pirates some right-handed power off of the bench.
