Corey Dickerson and Jung Ho Kang are Due Back Tomorrow


Clint Hurdle told the local media before Friday night’s game in Milwaukee that both left fielder Corey Dickerson and third baseman Jung Ho Kang are expected to be activated for tomorrow’s game.

Dickerson has been out since April 4th, playing just four games before going on the injured list with a right shoulder strain. He was rehabbing at Indianapolis until joining the Pirates yesterday for the flight to Milwaukee. Dickerson hit .182/.237/.212 in nine games during his Triple-A stint.

Kang has been out since May 13th with a left side strain. He began a rehab assignment with Indianapolis exactly two weeks later, and he hit .444/.516/.667 in eight games. Kang made two starts at shortstop and played another game there off of the bench, so there might be a plan for him to see some time there with the Pirates.

There will be moves made tomorrow to get both players on the roster. Dickerson needs to be placed back on the 40-man roster from the 60-day injured list, so there will need to be a move made there as well because the 40-man is currently full.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects.
