Pirates outfielder Jose Tabata left Wednesday’s game after crashing very hard into the wall in Cincinnati while making a tremendous catch and was diagnosed with concussion-like symptoms.

However, he passed a series of concussion tests yesterday and will apparently avoid going on the seven-day concussion disabled list. In fact, Tabata felt so healthy that he came off the bench Thursday as a pinch-hitter and delivered an RBI double.

Tabata’s shoulder actually appeared to take the brunt of the impact with the wall and he has some soreness, but overall the news is very good considering how ugly it looked at the time.

    That’ll teach him for going for the ball. He should have pulled up at the last second to save himself injury. That would be a more exciting play to the fans. Padded walls don’t work, either. Heck, if colliding with inanimate objects is OK, we should bring back running over catchers.

      Does this rambling comment have any point?

      Back on-topic: I cringe when I hear “concussion like symptoms”. It always comes across as “well. he has a concussion, but we still want him to play”.

        I guess it’s over your head.
