Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Jung Ho Kang is free to return to the team with his legal trouble behind him for the moment.
Per Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Kang fled the scene of a DUI accident, which was his third charge of driving under the influence since 2009.
"I deeply regret what I have done," Kang told Yonhap News before his hearing. "If I can get one last chance, I will become an exemplary player to earn respect from everyone."
The 29-year-old is heading into his third season with the Pirates after joining the team from the Korean Baseball Organization in 2015. In two years, he has posted a .273 batting average with 36 home runs and 120 RBI in 229 games.
Neither the Pirates nor the league office have announced additional discipline for Kang.
