Report: Pirates' Jung-Ho Kang denied visa to enter U.S.
Pirates infielder Jung-Ho Kang has been denied a visa to enter the United States, according to a Korean report and NBC News.
Earlier this month, Kang was placed on the restricted list by the Pirates while he is delayed in South Korea by visa issues related to a DUI arrest.
Kang received an eight-month suspended prison sentence after the DUI arrest in December, his third in South Korea. The sentence was suspended for two years.
In a statement after Kang was sentenced March 3, Pirates president Frank Coonelly said the team will withhold judgment until meeting with Kang.
David Freese is likely to be Pittsburgh's starting third baseman in Kang's absence.http://www.wpxi.com/sports/report-pirat ... /505693499
