Pirates | Jung Ho Kang drives in four runs

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 20:35:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang went 1-for-4 with a double, walk and four RBIs Wednesday, July 27, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Kang has been horrendously bad in the month of July, but he has hit safely in three straight and driven in five runs over the past two games. Perhaps he is starting to show some signs of life at the plate. However, he still shouldn't be trusted outside of deeper NL-only fantasy leagues until he shows more consistency.
