Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Pirates | Jose Tabata was available

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Jose Tabata (hamstring) was available off the bench Tuesday, May 7, but he was not used. "If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I might not as optimistic," manager Clint Hurdle said. "He showed some running strength. This is a completely different injury than he's had (to his left leg) before, and nowhere near as severe."

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Tabata will be able to avoid the disabled list, for now. Without consistent playing time in the Bucs' outfield, though, it's hard to recommend him, unless you're in a cavernous deep mixed league with five outfield spots.
