Jungho Kang and Andrew McCutchen ate together at the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The two led Pittsburgh’s offense in 2015 and 2016.메이저놀이터
After hitting 15 homers like Altoran with a batting average of 0.287 in 2015, his MLB debut year, Kang hit 21 arches in 2016 to take the Pittsburgh starting lineup.
Franchise star McCutchen also hit 23 and 24 home runs in 2015 and 2016, respectively.
However, the two broke up. Kang Jung-ho was sentenced to probation for drunk driving in South Korea and missed two years in MLB. He returned to Pittsburgh at the end of 2018, but McCutchen was traded to the San Francisco Giants ahead of the 2018 season.
After that, he played for the New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, and last year for the Milwaukee Brewers. He returned to his parents’ home after living a wandering life for five years.
Kang Jung-ho returned to the MLB after twists and turns and aimed for a comeback in Pittsburgh in 2019. He showed off his power as a slugger by hitting 10 home runs in 64 games, but was released with a poor batting average (0.169) and high strikeout rate.
Afterwards, when his MLB return was canceled, he tried to return to the KBO, but the trip to Korea was also canceled due to deterioration of public opinion.
After his return to the KBO was canceled, news of him was cut off.
Kang Jung-ho is one year younger than McCutchen. He was rated as the best hitter in the KBO, but drunk driving got in the way.
He is a player who is regretful if he continued to play baseball in the United States after being released from Pittsburgh.
