He is a good defender and he hit for an okay average if you are out the month of April.

I would trade Tabata for a bag of jelly beans at this point;he looks like a major sunk cost at this point and was horrible at the plate.

once again, Barmes is NOT the problem. the pirates need, and will always need, reliable pitching.

Bourn is not coming to pittsburgh so i have no idea why we even put this nonsense in our skulls.

Tabata would have to be dealt and I’d prefer to have Gabby off the team as well. I’d really love to keep presley around as a 4th OF. If you could deal Snider and Tabata for a decent offensive shortstop that’d be pretty amazing. Hell, if the redsox would take either of them for Ciriaco, i’d take it

It’s a no brainer to add something for nothing – even if he doesn’t work out at all, at least he has some possibility of contributing.

The more Marte plays, wherever he plays, the more I like the idea of him in RF with that cannon, Cutch and Bourn in LF/CF whichever way. That would be a really impressive OF with absolutely no holes to put a ball into. Wow, what speed that would be to cover ground. Marte I think has the raw power to be that RF also.

Still, a plus trade for the Bucs, I think.

FWIW, he had 15-20 starts last year w/Indians, and is projected (by Bill James at least) to put up that range again, with an OK 4.24 FiP along the way (slightly better projection than some other names that have been floated out there like J.A. Happ, Joe Saunders, etc.

Who knows?

They could probably sign ten guys like him as FA’s and NRI them to Spring Training. Why give up a marginal prospect and a roster spot? I’m guessing they remembered him from the Cleveland days

Otherwise wouldn’t the Bucs need to put him through waivers?

this looks like a spring training tryout to me (of course he could go if the Bucs need a roster spot).
