Fantasy Baseball: 10 Breakout Players For 2016

Jung Ho Kang

Kang is someone you can more than likely get later on because others might be worried about the tibia plateau fracture and lateral meniscus tear that resulted after Chris Coghlan’s takeout slide last September.

Again, a high-risk player, but you cannot avoid a nice average and on base guy that can fill in at 3B or SS. Shortstop being a position that isn’t so deep, grabbing Kang in the later rounds could end up being a huge steal.  He has nice pop in his bat, so he should be sitting in the realm of 20 homeruns and 60 RBIs while adding a very nice average or on base percentage, depending on how your league is set up.

Make sure to have someone to fill in for the time being if you want Kang to be your starter, as he will not return until sometime around the end of April.

It does look promising for Kang though as Adam Berry of MLB.com reported that Kang took part in five innings at third base in a Minor League game for the Pirates.
