him is to know how much he carries
  • zhangzkzhangzk November 22
    Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang has been reinstated from the
    restricted list and optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis after missing last season
    and the first part of this year because of visa issues.

    The 31-year-old Kang was unable to secure a work visa to travel from his
    native South Korea to the United States after he was arrested for DUI for a
    third time in December 2016 in Seoul. He received an eight-month suspended
    prison sentence.


    Friday’s move is primarily procedural Authentic
    Jessie Bates III Jersey
    , since Kang already has played in 11 minor
    league games. He was cleared to travel to the U.S. on April 27.

    Kang went 1 for 15 in his first four games for Indianapolis after batting
    .417 (10 for 24) in seven games for high Class A Bradenton.


    Kang finished third in the 2015 NL Rookie of the Year voting after becoming
    the first native South Korean position player to make the jump from the Korea
    Baseball Organization to the major leagues. He hit .287 with 15 homers in 126
    games that season, and then .255 with 21 homers in 103 games in 2016.


    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said there is no timetable for when Kang might
    be called up.


    ”He needs to play games,” Hurdle said. ”He needs to have a real spring

    HOUSTON — There were moments during the recently completed road trip when
    Evan Gattis‘ teammates appeared to relish his run-production exploits more than
    he did, scenes emblematic of the prevailing fondness for the Houston Astros‘
    bearded designated hitter.


    Gattis is among the many catalysts for the Astros, who take a 12-game winning
    streak into Tuesday’s game with the Tampa Bay Rays.


    The Astros tied the club record set in 1999 and matched in 2004 when Alex
    Bregman delivered the game-winning single in the ninth inning in a 5-4
    victory.

    Before Bregman’s hit, Gattis was named American League Player of the Week,
    earning the honor for the first time in his six-season career.


    Gattis hit .417 (10-for-24) with four homers and 15 RBIs for the week, the
    latter total representing seven more than any other player in the league.


    Gattis has been a house aflame this month Authentic Mike
    White Jersey
    , leading the majors with 23 RBIs. That total leaves
    him six shy of the club record of 29 set by Jimmy Wynn in 1967 and matched by
    Jose Cruz in 1984.


    On May 19, Gattis was mired in an extended season-opening slump and was
    batting .209. He recorded three multi-hit games over his next five starts and
    has wielded a hot bat ever since.


    “I’m thrilled for Gatty because to know him is to know how much he carries
    the burden of being the DH most nights,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “And
    he’s very emotional about it. He wants to contribute; he wants to do well. Had a
    rough start to the season and going through a few swing changes and a lot of
    work behinds the scenes and then he busts out and literally carries us for the
    better part of the road trip.


    “For him to be rewarded with that recognition nationally is awesome. For the
    reaction inside with his teammates and coaches, everybody feels pretty good
    about him.”


    Right-hander Justin Verlander (9-2, 1.61 ERA) will start for the Astros
    (49-25) on Tuesday. He leads the AL in ERA, WHIP (0.76), opponent batting
    average (.160) and OPS (.493) while ranking second in innings (100 1/3) and
    fourth in strikeouts (120).


    He is 8-3 with a 3.29 ERA over 16 career starts against the Rays, failing to
    record a decision when he allowed two runs on six hits and five walks with six
    strikeouts over seven innings in a 5-3 win on June 15 Authentic
    Leighton Vander Esch Jersey
    , 2017, with Detroit.


    Left-hander Blake Snell (8-4, 2.58 ERA) gets the nod for the Rays (33-39). He
    is 0-1 with a 7.50 ERA over three career starts against Houston, failing to log
    more than five innings in any of those outings. Snell has made two starts at
    Minute Maid Park, going 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA.


    Snell has yielded two or fewer runs in 12 of 15 starts this season, tied with
    Verlander and Yankees right-hander Luis Severino for the most such starts in the
    AL. That total includes eight starts surrendering one run or fewer, the
    second-best mark in the AL behind Verlander (nine).


    The Rays’ pitcher usage remains a topic of conversation throughout the
    majors, with the collapse by Romo only fueling those with dissenting opinions on
    the strategy of employing multiple bullpen days per week. Six pitchers preceded
    Romo on Monday Authentic
    Royce Freeman Jersey
    , with right-hander Matt Andriese producing
    the longest outing of 2 2/3 innings in Tampa Bay’s 10th loss in its last 11 road
    games.


    “This is a tough one, no doubt,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “We sold out
    to win a ballgame. We got aggressive with the moves; they got aggressive on
    their side with the pinch hitting. It all basically worked in our favor until
    the last inning. Leadoff walk, a couple tough pitches, a couple odd things took
    place and then Bregman comes up and gets a big hit.”
