Pirates do Pirates at deadline: Neat little moves

By Eno Sarris The Pirates seem to be perennial buyers at the trade deadline, and though there’s often pressure on the team to make the big move for an ace or a big first baseman, they usually make smaller moves that cost them less. So, in getting reliever Joakim Soria for infielder JaCoby Jones, lefty starter J.A. Happ from the Mariners for Adrian Sampson, and Michael Morse from...

Pirates trade Jose Tabata to Dodgers for Mike Morse

michael morse went with cash to pirates for jose tabata — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) July 31, 2015 This is a pretty late-breaking move and I am literally on my way out the door to a barbeque festival tonight, but it looks like the Pirates snuck one move in under the trade deadline. Mike Morse is really not having a good season at all, but as a right-handed bat I guess he provides...

Did Jose Tabata Cross Line In Max Scherzer’s Perfect Game Bid? (Video)

Jose Tabata just made a name for himself in the most 2015 way possible. Tabata appeared to lean into a pitch from Max Scherzer with two outs and two strikes in the ninth inning of Saturday’s game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Washington Nationals at Nationals Park. The pitch plunked Tabata on the elbow, breaking up Scherzer’s bid for a perfect game and setting off a social...

Jose Tabata ruins perfect game, Pirates get no-hit

This was classic Jose Tabata. With Max Scherzer absolutely dominating the Pirates, cruising through the lineup three times, one strike away from the 24th perfect game in MLB history with a sold out ballpark going nuts and the entire nation watching… Tabata stuck his elbow right into the pitch. He probably should not have been awarded first base, but he was (granted, it’s probably...

2015 Angels Trade Deadline Targets: Pirates-Angels

By Robert Cunningham, Staff Writer -  The Pirates currently have an excellent outfield alignment of McCutchen, Polanco, and Marte giving them one of the best groups in all of baseball. Rewind a few years back and there is one name missing from that trio: Jose Tabata. At the tender age of 21, the Pirates committed to a long term contract (6 guaranteed years...

Polanco down, Tabata up, Nix gone, Barmes back

The headline covers the Bucs’ notable roster moves on Monday: Gregory Polanco to Indianapolis, Jose Tabata back up from Indy, Jayson Nix designated for assignment, and Clint Barmes activated off the DL. Polanco going to the minors is a bit of a shock – especially if you’d have told me this would be happening a couple months ago – but it does make some sense. The rookie has...

Walker in, Tabata out, Marte…?

The Pirates had to make a heavily discussed roster move on Tuesday afternoon to clear a roster spot for Neil Walker, who returned from his DL stint.  The decision was somewhat surprising: outrighting Jose Tabata to Indianapolis. This is an uncommon move (you don’t usually see guys with a long term contract–and as much big league service as Tabata–sent to the minors) so it...

Enter the New Lumber Company

First things first: there was some confusion today about exactly what the Pirates did with Jose Tabata today to clear roster room for Neil Walker, so let’s run through that quickly. Outrighting a player to Triple-A means that the player has been both removed from the 40-man roster and sent to Triple-A. It’s a process used to send a player to Triple-A when said player doesn...
