TribLIVE: Pirates - Jung Ho Kang to make return Friday against Reds

The Pirates signed Kang out of South Korea to a four-year, $11 million contract in January 2015. The deal includes a $5.5 million club option with a $250,000 buyout for 2019.

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday the organization was “still working through exactly where (Kang) fits” for 2019.

“It’s a big jump from Instructional League games to a major league game,” Huntington said Sunday.

Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer got their “thanks for everything” ovations when they were removed from the final Pirate home game on Sunday. Harrison could be brought back for $10.5 million, against a $1 million buyout.  There’s been some talk of bringing Mercer back as an infield stabilizer, at something less than this year’s $6.75 million. 

And here Kang comes to bat…

Pirates set to recall outfield prospect Meadows

Meadows was the Pirates’ first-round pick, the No. 9 overall selection, in the 2013 Draft. He is the club’s No. 2 prospect, per MLB Pipeline, and the No. 42 overall prospect in MLB. He has been held back in previous years by injuries, including oblique and hamstring strains, but he has long been viewed as one of the Pirates’ future building blocks in the outfield.

“It’s been a tough road, but I feel like that’s behind me now,” Meadows said earlier this year. “I’ve really learned a lot. I’ve ventured out, learned a lot about myself and my body.”

Pittsburgh is in first place, with series against the bottom-dwelling Padres and Reds before a 10-game test against the Cardinals and Cubs starting later in the month. Starling Marte is injured, so it’s likely that Meadows will get starts in CF.
