Jose Tabata LF/RF PIT 2 Months

Tabata has accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Indianapolis, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Tabata was designated for assignment by the Pirates last week, but will remain in the organization after passing through waivers unclaimed. The two years remaining on his contract likely had a lot to do with other teams passing on the 26-year-old, who hit .282/.314/.333 with seven extra-base hits and one stolen base in 80 games with the big club this season.

The Pirates designated Tabata for assignment Friday.

Tabata hit .282 in 80 games with the big club this season, but it was a shallow average, as just seven of his 49 hits went for extra bases and he walked all of seven times in 186 plate appearances. Moreover, he stole just one base in three attempts with the big club, and was also 1-for-3 on the basepaths in 39 games at Triple-A Indianapolis. The Pirates were high enough on Tabata in 2011 to ink him to a six-year extension, but three years later and his luster has all but worn off, though another team may be inclined to take a flier on the 26-year-old.

Tabata went 2-for-4 with a game-winning RBI single in his first start since June 21 on Friday.

For whatever reason, Tabata appears to have been in the Pirates' doghouse the last couple months. Perhaps a clutch single could help him work his way back. Expect him to serve as a pinch-hitter with occasional starts in a crowded outfield down the stretch.

Tabata was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

The 26-year-old has split the season between the Pirates and Triple-A. In 62 games for Pittsburgh, Tabata is hitting .289/.327/.331 with four doubles and 14 RBI. In a corresponding move, the Pirates optioned Gregory Polanco to Triple-A.
