Pirates' Jung Ho Kang: Losing work to Moran
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kang is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics.

Kang finds himself on the bench for the fourth time in five games in favor of Colin Moran, who seems to have usurped him as the Pirates' top third baseman. Each of Kang's recent four benchings have come against right-handed starting pitchers, suggesting he's stuck in the short side of the platoon.

Pirates' Jung Ho Kang: Struggles continue Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kang went 0-for-4 and made a pair of errors in Friday's 14-1 loss to Oakland.

His slash line is down to .152/.212/.342 with four homers and eight RBI. Kang has whiffed a whopping 28 times in 79 at-bats. He also appears to be on the verge of developing a case of the yips, double pumping before he throws to first base. After leading the Grapefruit League with seven homers, the third baseman's fortunes have fallen. It wouldn't be surprising to see Pittsburgh start Colin Moran more frequently at third base with Kang spending time on the bench.

Pirates' Jung Ho Kang: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kang is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kang will sit for a second straight game as Colin Moran picks up another start in his place at the hot corner. The veteran infielder is slashing just .260/.222/.360 with four homers and 28 strikeouts through 81 plate appearances (21 games) this season.

Pirates' Jung Ho Kang: Hits fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kang went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and double in an 11-2 loss to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

After a very strong spring training, owners were hopeful Kang would hit the ground running early in 2019, but that didn't happen. Even after two hits Wednesday, Kang is hitting .167 with four homers, eight RBI and five runs in 60 at-bats. Kang hit sixth Wednesday, but the good news is nobody besides Josh Bell has distinguished himself in the Pirates lineup this month, so if Kang gets hot soon, he can still earn the team's cleanup spot.
