"ESPN.com: Kang entering rehab for alcohol abuse"


          

a)Three seems like a lot of DUIs.

b)I don't know why, but it's a relief when athletes from other countries are just as dirtbaggy as American athletes.

c)Pittsburgh had kind of a cool synthesis where Kang and Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer were all covering two positions. But with Kang's varying issues and Harrison's return to being Josh Harrison it now looks a lot less clever. I wonder if they'd be interested in Brian Dozier?

http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/18624536/agent-alan-nero-says-jung-ho-kang-pittsburgh-pirates-enter-treatment-program

Jung Ho Kang has agreed to enter a treatment program, the agent for the Pittsburgh Pirates infielder said Saturday.

Agent Alan Nero told media in Pittsburgh that Kang has agreed to enter the voluntary program after his December DUI arrest in South Korea, the third time since 2009 he has been arrested for such an offense in the country.

Entering rehab was a recommendation of Major League Baseball's Treatment Board, which had reviewed Kang's case.

Naver, a Korean media outlet, reported last week that Kang was formally charged by the Seoul Central District Court for his December incident, in which he allegedly fled the scene of the crash. He also was reportedly fined 15 million won ($13,177.05).

Kang, 29, has not been disciplined by the Pirates or MLB for his December arrest, but he did lose his spot on Korea's World Baseball Classic roster.

The DUI incident marked Kang's second brush with the law last year. In July, Chicago police said a 23-year-old woman reported that she had been assaulted by Kang at a hotel in the city after meeting him through a dating app. Police said the woman alleged that she had a drink, faded in and out of consciousness and was sexually assaulted by Kang.

According to reports in September, police attempted to contact the woman for follow-up questioning but were unable to locate her.

It is not known if Kang will attend the Pirates' first full-squad workout of spring training on Feb. 17, although general manager Neal Huntington told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last week he expected him to be there.

Kang has a .273 average and 36 home runs in two seasons with the Pirates. He signed a four-year, $11 million contract with Pittsburgh in 2015 after playing nine seasons in the Korean Baseball Organization.
