Jose Tabata diagnosed with mild concussion-like symptoms


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Pirates outfielder Jose Tabata was diagnosed with mild concussion-like symptoms after slamming into the left-field wall during Wednesday's game at Cincinnati, according to MLB.com.

Although Tabata crashed into the wall with his left shoulder, Pirates head athletic trainer Todd Tomczyk appeared to be looking at Tabata's jaw during an on-field examination. Tabata was able to walk off the field with limited assistance from Tomczyk and manager Clint Hurdle.

"You talk about laying out and making a catch and hitting the wall hard," Hurdle said. "I was just glad he was able to walk off. We'll see how it feels tomorrow."

Report: Pirates could put two outfielders on trading block


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) The Pirates could be interested in trading outfielders Jose Tabata and Travis Snider, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Pirates hope Jose Tabata can build off late-season surge


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) 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
(10/31/2013) 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.

Jose Tabata finally meeting potential?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/16/2013) Right field has been a revolving door of Quadruple-A types for the Pirates this season, but they finally settled on Jose Tabata before the break, starting him in 11 straight games. He responded by hitting .333 (14 for 42) with four doubles, a triple, two steals and only five strikeouts.

I'm intrigued. Tabata has the pedigree of a top prospect and hit .299 as a rookie in 2010. But then he lost sight of himself, bulked up to hit home runs, slumped his way out of regular at-bats and suffered one nagging injury after another.

It's been going on so long that you may have already written him off in Fantasy even though he's still only 24 -- a year younger than Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson, who's just beginning his major-league career.

If you play in a deep Head-to-Head league, consider taking a flier on Tabata. At worst, he's another Denard Span. At best, he's a mainstay for you down the stretch.
