Jose Tabata brought back from minor leagues by Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) Dropped from the 40-man roster last October, outfielder Jose Tabata has been brought back to the major leagues by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Tabata's contract was selected from Indianapolis on Tuesday, and right-hander Wilfredo Boscan was optioned to the Triple-A team. Tabata, who has a $4 million salary, was hitting .352 with no homers and four RBIs in 28 games at...

Jeff Karsten hangs them up

Ex-Yankee pitching lugnut Jeff Karsten is done. He's retiring. Don't stop the presses. Guy hasn't pitched in two years. He's just 32, though. The good die young.Karsten went to Pittsburgh in the 2008 Cashman Coup, which brought us the china doll, Xavier Nady, and LH Damaso Marte. Neither could salvage the awful 2008 season, (which closed Yankee Stadium and officially ended with Robbie...

Pirates hit three home runs, beat Tigers 8-7

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- Tony Sanchez, Starling Marte and Willy Garcia homered, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Detroit Tigers 8-7 Wednesday night. Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen missed his fifth straight game because of lower body soreness. Outfielder Jose Tabata fouled a pitch off his left foot in the third inning and left the game on a golf cart. Marte also doubled...

News and notes: Game time

The spring training action is heating up, and it’s finally time for some game action – the annual intrasquad scrimmage took place on Monday and then Grapefruit League play begins on Tuesday as the Bucs take on the Blue Jays (and our old buddy Russell Martin). Even before the games got started, there was no shortage of storylines over the past week: The Andrew McCutchen extension...

News and notes: Almost game time

The spring training action is heating up, and it’s almost time for some game action – the annual intrasquad scrimmage will happen today (Monday) and then Grapefruit League play begins on Tuesday. Even though the games haven’t started yet, there has been no shortage of storylines over the past week. The Andrew McCutchen extension talk, in my eyes, is not one of them, however...

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...

The Pirates’ Pitching Turnaround

Back in early June, I wrote about Pittsburgh’s impending recall of Gregory Polanco, with the viewpoint that while he would be a welcome upgrade over Travis Snider and Jose Tabata in right field, he wasn’t going to single-handedly save the Pirates’ season, since he wasn’t a pitcher. Or as I put it at the time: They […]

Brewers 1, Pirates 0

A huge crowd was smelling blood on Saturday night – especially after another episode of Andrew McCutchen HBP drama – and a win to put the Brewers away would have made for another brilliant scene. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen as the Pirates wasted a great night of pitching and lost the game with a couple of tough breaks late. This could have been Edinson Volquez‘s final...

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...

Pirates demote Polanco after rookie's second-half struggles

  The Pittsburgh Pirates sent struggling rookie outfielder Gregory Polanco to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday and recalled outfielder Jose Tabata. Polanco made his major-league debut on June 10 but has slumped since the All-Star break. The 22-year-old had just one hit in his final 30 at bats before heading back to Indianapolis. Manager Clint Hurdle gave Polanco a handful of days...

The Yankees have some explaining to do about the signing of Latino boys

MLB's system of signing 16-year-old Latinos is one of the ugliest examples of child exploitation in sports. Of course, we only hear about kids who are banking huge checks - $2 million dollars, sometimes - providing a convenient sense that these Latin cut-throats are gouging and holding MLB teams for ransom. But vast numbers of families chase the lie and get nothing...

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...

Because of this, many teams will be looking to add an extra player on to their roster as the trade deadline approaches. On the flipside, there are also a few teams that are sliding out of their division race and may look to move a few...
