Pirates' Jung Ho Kang: Cold bat against Cubs
Kang went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts against the Cubs on Thursday.
He was lifted in the ninth inning in favor of pinch hitter Colin Moran against right-handed closer Pedro Strop. Kang's batting average is down to .121 and he has one hit in his last 20 at-bats. As a result, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 32-year-old cede some playing time to Moran, though he could start Friday with lefty Patrick Corbin on the mound.
