The Kukmin Ilbo reports, via ESPN, that shortstop Kang Jung-ho and the Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to a US$16 million contract. The graphics team was hard at work today, though nothing will be official until after Kang's physical on Thursday.

The Pirates won the rights to negotiate with the 27-year-old shortstop in December. If he signs and plays, he will be the second Korean to appear for Pittsburgh in the regular season, after pitcher Chan-ho Park in 2010.
