JOSE TABATA RUMORS & GOSSIP

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.

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.

News and notes: Appel, Karstens, Tabata

Some leftovers from yesterday… First round pick Mark Appel had a rough game yesterday in his second postseason start. He allowed 5 earned runs in 4 innings in what ended up being an awful 17-1 loss to Florida State. Appel completely lost his control late in his outing – he walked five (two with the bases loaded), hit two batters, and threw a wild pitch. His college season will...
