Park, who has led the KBO in home runs the past three years, also plays third base. He is eligible to be posted after the 2015 season, but would first need Nexen permission.
“His strength is his power,” Kang said. “He a good contact hitter. He got a good arm, too.”
In addition to first base, Park can play third base.
Yonhap reported the Pirates jerseys had a scout at Nexen game on Thursday. The Chicago Cubs jerseys, Texas Rangers jerseys, Baltimore Orioles jerseys, Washington Nationals jerseys and Cleveland Indians jerseys also have sent people to evaluate Park.
During Nexen spring training camp, which was held in Arizona, Park was in touch with the Boston Red Sox jerseys and Oakland A According to Yonhap, Park has signed on with Octagon, the same agency that represents Kang.
Since joining the Pirates jerseys, Kang has kept in touch with Park.
“We communicate a lot,” Kang said. “I told him to challenge himself and strive to get better.”
Before this season began, former Colorado Rockies jerseys GM Dan O picked the Pirates jerseys to win the NL Central.
“I don know if that me being biased towards Clint or looking at it objectively,” O said with a chuckle.
In 2002, O hired Clint Hurdle to manage the Rockies jerseys. He also fired Hurdle in May 2009, less than two years after the team streaked into the World Series.
Now an analyst for MLB Network, O still believes Hurdle knows how to manage. Even though the Pirates jerseys finished April two games over .500, water O expects the Pirates jerseys to be playoff contenders.
“Baseball is a game of skill and luck,” O said “Early in the season, luck plays a much larger role than skill in a lot of cases. But, as the season goes on, skill takes over.
“The Pirates jerseys are a very skilled club. Their best player (cheap Andrew McCutchen jersey) didn have a good month of April. But this guy got a lifetime OPS of wholesale baseball jerseys (.878), so the reality is he going to turn it around. If I were the Pirates jerseys, I be encouraged. They right in the thick of it, and some of their best players haven been as good as they can be yet.”
O does see one potential pitfall in the bullpen.
“I think the one problem for the Pirates jerseys will be it hard creating another closer in the middle of the season,” O said. “If you do find another closer, that creates another hole someplace else. A bullpen is like a chain link fence that all connected. As soon as one chain breaks, it screws up the whole fence.”
Closer cheap Mark Melancon jersey lurched through April with a 5.23 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. He blew a two run lead April 21 against the Chicago Cubs jerseys.
“Those are devastating, kick in the gut type losses,” O said. “Closers are like field goal kickers. They really need to come through for you when it means the most. It affects the psyche of the club when you lose games you should win. There a hangover affect.”
The Pirates jerseys changed their minds about cheap Charlie Morton jersey next outing as he recovers from offseason hip surgery. Instead of starting a rehab assignment with High A Bradenton on Saturday, Morton will throw another simulated game in extended spring training. The right hander pitch limit has been upped to 90 over seven innings.
“We wanted to stay in control of the environment and tempo,” Hurdle said. “We give him one more extended opportunity to be focused on controlling what he can, as far as holding his back side and making pitches.”
Morton is scheduled to throw a bullpen next week at PNC Park and be re evaluated by trainers and coaches.
For every run the Pirates jerseys score in the May 1 3 series against the St. Louis Cardinals jerseys, the Pirates jerseys will take $1 off the price of lower outfield box and outfield box seats for each game of the homestand May 5 10 against the Cincinnati Reds jerseys and Cardinals jerseys.
