Pittsburgh Pirate third baseman Kang Jung-ho was handed a suspended prison sentence for drunk driving in his native South Korea on Friday, Yonhap news agency reported, clearing him to join his team for Spring Training.

Kang, who had two previous convictions for drunk driving, was charged with driving while intoxicated and fleeing the scene of an accident after his car crashed into a guardrail in the Gangnam district of Seoul in the early hours of Dec. 2.

A subsequent test showed the 29-year-old's blood alcohol level to be 0.084 percent, above the 0.05 percent limit beyond which a driver will have their license suspended, police said.
