JOSE TABATA RUMORS & GOSSIP

NRIs For Morel and Tabata, Kang Scouting Report, Harrison’s Future, Win Now vs Win Later

The MLB.com transactions page has Brent Morel and Jose Tabata receiving invites to Spring Training. Earlier in the week we learned that Tabata was invited to camp. Morel isn’t a surprise, since he played in Pittsburgh last year, is still in their minor league system, and is currently participating in mini camp. The other day I uploaded the 2015 Spring Training tracker. Morel has...

Jose Tabata Outrighted to Indianapolis

Jose Tabata Designated For Assignment

The Pittsburgh Pirates have designated Jose Tabata for assignment, according to the MLB.com transactions page (h/t MLBTR). Tabata was outrighted earlier this season, after going unclaimed on waivers. The outfielder is unlikely to be claimed this time around, since the same conditions exist as last time. He’s got a horrible contract, with over $9 M due to him over the next two...

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...
