Jung-Ho Kang Takes Part in Minor League Game

By Jason Shetler

Jung-Ho Kang took a big step forward on Friday, as he played in a minor league game at Pirate City, which was his first game action since last September when he suffered a gruesome leg injury on a slide from former Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan. 

Kang faced the New York Yankees AAA squad, and went 1-for-4 with a single. He did batting, but no running or fielding in the game. According to Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Kang ran bases after the game and said he does it “two or three times”. Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects made mention that he might run in games next week. GM Neal Huntington is hopeful that Kang can return sometime in late April.
