Jung Ho Kang remains in South Korea as he waits to receive his work visa.
Kang had been hopeful of receiving it this past week, but obviously it didn't happen. He's been working out in Korea and is in good shape, but Kang hasn't faced any live pitching yet this offseason. The hope remains that he'll be cleared soon and report to the Pirates' spring training complex in Florida, but it's very likely at this point that he'll begin the season on the restricted list. "He’s going to need some work, some game at-bats," general manager Neal Huntington said. "We can set up some sim games, we can set up a lot of at-bats for him in a short period of time. But it’s hard to say until we get him here." Mar 19 - 10:18 AM
