JOSE TABATA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yhonathan Barrios Among Notable Rule 5 Players Available

J.J. Cooper at Baseball America put together a list of the notable players available in the upcoming Rule 5 draft. No Pittsburgh Pirates players were among the top ten players available, but two got mentioned as notable options. Jose Tabata got mentioned based solely on his contract, while Yhonathan Barrios was among the hardest throwing pitchers that weren’t protected. Cooper...

Jose Tabata Outrighted to Indianapolis

The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced that outfielder Jose Tabata has been outrighted to Indianapolis. He was designated for assignment last Friday and cleared waivers. Due to his contract, it’s no surprise that he has now cleared waivers twice this year. Tabata is owed over $9 M in the next two seasons, which means he will likely accept the assignment to AAA, rather than elect...

News and notes: Guilmet, Tabata, Mazzaro, McGuiness

Sadly we are at the point where boring, nearly meaningless news like this warrants a post, as opposed to more postseason action. Oh well. The Pirates acquired relief pitcher Preston Guilmet from Baltimore for cash considerations. Guilmet has had a few short, unimpressive major league stints but has impressive K/BB numbers in the minors. You never know who will come out of the scrum...

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...

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...
