Pirates sign 3B Kang to one-year deal
PITTSBURGH — Jung Ho Kang is staying with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Pirates and the veteran third baseman agreed to a one-year deal Thursday that will bring Kang back for the 2019 season.
The move comes a week after Pittsburgh declined a $5.5-million club option for Kang, paying him a $250,000 buyout instead. Financial terms on Kang’s new deal weren’t immediately available.
