Pittsburgh Pirates OF Jose Tabata (hamstring) left the game early with a left hamstring injury Wednesday, May 1, and he will have an MRI exam Thursday, May 2.
Fantasy Tip: An extended absence or a trip to the disabled list for Tabata would probably mean more playing time for Travis Snider. However, the Pirates could elect to recall Jerry Sands to platoon with Snider. Stay tuned on the severity of Tabata's injury.

The Boston Red Sox have acquired RP Joel Hanrahan and 2B Brock Holt from the Pittsburgh Pirates for OF Jerry Sands, INF Ivan De Jesus, P Stolmy Pimentel and RP Mark Melancon.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen whether he or Andrew Bailey will close; if they'll split duties; or if Bailey will be traded. Still, this saves situation should be settled before you pick your team. Both K-friendly hurlers deserve mixed-league selections, even if their values remain in flux late in the spring.
Jason Grilli, meanwhile, is expected to handle Buccos saves. He has little experience in the role, but his 2012 renaissance revealed a highly skilled pitcher. Grilli's attractive peripherals say he's a low-end No. 2 mixed closer, but with his potential negative ERA regression, he carries significant downside at that price.
