Pittsburgh Pirates OF Jose Tabata (undisclosed) is leaving the game early Wednesday, April 16, after slamming into the left field wall while making a catch. His head and shoulder collided with the wall.
Fantasy Tip: Tabata hit the wall extremely hard, but it's unknown if his injury is to his head, shoulder or something else. He walked off the field gingerly with trainers helping him. Travis Snider figures to see increased playing time, depending on the nature of Tabata's injury. Also, the Bucs could bring up prospect Gregory Blanco, who is off to a red hot start in the minors.
