Jung Ho Kang blasts ninth home run Saturday

Jung Ho Kang went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Kang's homer off Jon Lester accounted for the Pirates' first run of the day, after falling behind 10-0 after four. Kang has flashed some power lately, but is batting .179 with intermittent playing time. He's a far cry from fantasy relevance.

Jung Ho Kang rips game-tying home run Friday

Jung Ho Kang went 1-for-3 with a game-tying solo home run Friday against the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Kang entered the game as a pinch hitter, and came to deliver a huge hit for the Pirates, but they were unable to surge ahead. That's a three-game hitting streak for Kang, who sees intermittent playing time at third base and shortstop. Still, he's batting .173 with a 30% strikeout rate.

Jung Ho Kang adds RBI double Thursday

Jung Ho Kang went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored Thursday against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Kang got another start at shortstop, and drove in one of the Pirates' three runs scored Thursday. He hits at the bottom of the lineup, and sports an ugly .169/.226/.382 slash line this season.

Jung Ho Kang leaves yard in win Monday

Jung Ho Kang went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's blowout win over the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Kang got the start at shortstop, and came through with a two-run smash. His night was pretty quiet, however, compared to those of his teammates. Kang is struggling to find playing time, and will continue to do so, as he's batting .162 with seven home runs this season.

Jung Ho Kang triples in loss Tuesday

Jung Ho Kang went 1-for-3 with a triple in the Pirates' 5-4 loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Kang now has a .153 AVG on the year along with a .189 ISO. He is on the short side of a platoon with Colin Moran, but he seems to be getting every start against left-handed hitters. He doesn't play enough, or perform well enough, to have any fantasy value.
