Maybe. Anything beyond that is an unreasonable expectation that he can remain healthy. NH better be shopping for something else. Even if it is just a Marlon Byrd or a Jason Bay type as insurance for when Tabata goes back on the DL.

We’ve seen Inge in RF on several occasions against the paucity of LHP we have faced, Snider has 20 ABs on the year against lefties. And, Tabata’s results against RHP are better than his results vs. LHP so the platoon didn’t work that well when he was healthy..

Snider .676 OPS vs. RHP, unacceptable. Hopefully Tabata can do well in the role of full-time starter.

Form here on out I’d be okay with Snider getting starts against RH while Tabata starts against LH and, when hot, starts against both. People have seemed to forgotten Snider was forced to bat a lot against lefties since Tabata went down and its effected his overall performance.

I think Snider does much better off the bench.
