Jose Tabata is back from the disabled list after missing the past six weeks with an oblique injury. To make room for him on the roster the Pirates demoted yesterday’s spot starter, Brandon Cumpton, to Triple-A.

Andrew McCutchen and Starling Marte obviously aren’t going anywhere in the Pirates’ outfield, so any playing time Tabata receives will come at the expense of Garrett Jones and Travis Snider, who’ve essentially split the action in right field, or first baseman Gaby Sanchez.

Tabata hit just .179 during a nine-game rehab assignment at Triple-A.

    “Tabata hit just .179 during a nine-game rehab assignment at Triple-A.”

    Glad to see he’s coming back up on a hot streak.

    we need an everyday rightfielder with some consistant pop in his bat. too much platooning in right.
