Jung Ho Kang has agreed to enter a treatment program, the agent for the Pittsburgh Pirates infielder said Saturday.

Agent Alan Nero told media in Pittsburgh that Kang has agreed to enter the voluntary program after his December DUI arrest in South Korea, the third time since 2009 he has been arrested for such an offense in the country.

Entering rehab was a recommendation of Major League Baseball's Treatment Board, which had reviewed Kang's case.
