Jung Ho Kang
No Stats Available
News
When Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang signed this offseason, there was some concern about how his power swing would translate from the Korean Baseball Organization to Major League Baseball.

In his first spring game Tuesday, however, Kang -- who hit 40 home runs in Japan last season and slugged .504 in nine seasons -- got to silence some of his critics.

The 27-year-old infielder hit a solo home run in his second at-bat during an 8-7 win against the Blue Jays. Kang connected on a home run to center field in the top of the third inning off Marco Estrada. Kang finished 1 for 2 with one walk.

Hip - Probable for start of season (Updated - 3/5/15)
News
Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton gave up two hits and two walks in two scoreless innings while striking out one in his spring debut Thursday, his first outing since undergoing hip surgery.

"No pain, which is awesome," Morton said after the game, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "A little rusty, but I got weak contact and groundballs. Pleased by that. But I don't like walking people and falling behind."

Morton is expected to be ready to pitch out of the rotation at the start of the regular season.

Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer worked on improving his defensive struggles last year with Clint Barmes and his offensive struggles with first-base coach Nick Leyva, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"What's the best thing that Barmes could do for our ballclub? That's to tutor this young kid, and that’s exactly what he did," Leyva said. "It was phenomenal to watch that."

Mercer hit .199 through the first 49 games last season. He bounced back with a .278 batting average, a .333 on-base percentage, 11 home runs and 19 doubles since June 2. Now that Mercer is the incumbent starter at shortstop, he is hoping to use his experience as an advantage to beat out Korean shortstop Jung Ho Kang for playing time throughout the season.

"You can't substitute for innings played, you can't substitute for at-bats, you can't substitute for innings pitched at this level," Leyva said. "You talk all you want about it, but when you get 450 at-bats, you've had a major league season. When you've played 140 games, you've played a major league season. The only way you're going to get those is by competing and getting the job done."

Injuries
Ankle - Out until at least early March (Updated - 3/4/15)
News
Pirates outfielder Josh Harrison doesn't seem too concerned after rolling his left ankle during Wednesday's spring game against the Blue Jays.

"I wouldn't even say I completely turned it. I kinda caught myself when I felt something," Harrison said Thursday, per MLB.com. "The trainers spotted me pulling up and right away said, 'Let's just be cautious,' so I came out."

Harrison had issues with his left ankle in 2014 after twisting it June 11. He had recurrences later in June and in early September, but he did not miss significant time.

"And this wasn't anything like last [year's ankle injury]," Harrison said. "I know how it felt then, and this time it was a lot less [painful]."

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Wednesday that pitcher Gerrit Cole "did fine" in his spring debut, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

"He probably threw more pitches than he wanted to in the first inning," Hurdle said. "But he didn't back off and kept the damage to a minimum. He had some good angle to his breaking balls and used his two-seamer well. A good step forward."

Cole, who surrendered one earned run on one hit and one walk while striking out three in two innings Wednesday, said he wasn't worried about the outcome but wanted to get on the same page with new catcher Francisco Cervelli.

"I told (Cervelli) I wasn't going to shake him off," Cole said. "I was just going to see how he wanted to do my stuff so he could get a feel for how he wants to call the game. I think it'll be that way for probably awhile. He'll get some information. I'll get some information, and then we'll probably sit down (to talk)."
