2020 Fantasy Outlook
Legal troubles and wrist surgery limited Kang to just three big-league games in 2017 and 2018 combined, but he was ready to go to start the 2019 season. Unfortunately for the Pirates, he proved to be nowhere close to the player he was in his first two seasons stateside. In 65 games before getting released in early August, Kang hit an anemic .169/.222/.395, striking out at a 32.4% clip. His power was still there, but that's just about all he offered, as his defense also graded out poorly at both third base and shortstop. It's hard to see why a team would be interested in taking a chance on Kang this season. He does have a 116 career wRC+ in 297 major-league games, but his last successful season at the plate came back in 2016, and he'll turn 33 in April. Given his past success, it's possible he could get things back together, but there's little reason to invest during draft season. Read Past Outlooks
