|Pirates hope Jose Tabata can build off late-season surge |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/9/14) An oblique injury put Pirates outfielder Jose Tabata on the disabled list for a few weeks in 2013, which hindered his performance.
However, the 25-year-old outfielder did very well offensively over the final two months, batting .312 with a .357 on-base percentage, .490 slugging percentage and .848 OPS over his final 45 games (39 starts).
"He got back to who he was last year," Pirates hitting coach Jeff Branson said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "He understood that the whole league knows that the way you attack him is pounding inside. In 2012 is when he started trying to cheat in there. He was trying to attack them the way they were attacking him."
|Giancarlo Stanton to Pirates possible? |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(10/31/13) A deal between the Pirates and Marlins involving outfielder Giancarlo Stanton for Jose Tabata and bullpen depth is "very possible," MLB.com reports.
MLB.com reports that Stanton's name "keeps popping up" as the Pirates look to address a potential hole in right field. Even though Tabata has a team-friendly deal that includes three club options, it seems like the Marlins would be able to generate more value than the proposed deal from such a coveted player.

Alvarez, Martin homer as Pirates beat Red Sox 7-6
BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) Pedro Alvarez and Russell Martin hit two-run homers off Brandon Workman, who started in place of injured Jake Peavy, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Boston Red Sox 7-6 Monday.
|Jose Tabata has gotten so many opportunities for the Pirates already that you might be tempted to write him off, but keep in mind he only recently turned 25. And about the time he turned 25 is when he began showing signs of taking a step forward, batting .318 with three homers, eight doubles, three triples and an .845 OPS in 132 at-bats from that fateful day to the end of the season. Of course, a birthday is an arbitrary milestone, but generally speaking, players reach their physical peak in their mid-20s. Coming up through the minors, Tabata projected to have more power than he's shown so far. Even if it turns out to be more Martin Prado-like than Andrew McCutchen-like, it could still make him a useful Fantasy option. Then again, six weeks isn't much of a sample size. Tabata has shown flashes of potential before, but now that he's no longer a base-stealer, he has a thin margin for error, especially since up-and-coming power hitter Andrew Lambo is also capable of playing right field. If Tabata enters 2014 with a starting job, he'll have some sleeper appeal, but in mixed leagues, you can wait to see how he starts the season before making a move for him.
