We need to be disciplined with [a rebuild], particularly with how aligned with what we’re trying to do in the community as far as a stadium. There’s only one way to open a stadium successfully, and that’s with a good, young team, Beane told reporters, via ESPN.

As far as this year, it’s hard to envision a scenario where something is going to change overnight and he’s going to be able to come in here and contribute to help us win games, given the down time and where he is, Huntington said. Again, for next year, it’s uncertain. We’ll see how the offseason plays out.

Kang was arrested in December in his native South Korea and charged with driving under the influence for the third time. Due to his repeated violations, a court sentenced him in March to eight months in jail, with the term suspended for two years.

The 30-year-old infielder hoped the latter part of the sentence would allow him to rejoin the Pirates in time for the regular season, but he has been unable to secure a visa to enter the United States despite getting assistance in the effort from MLB and the players’ association.
