The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced that outfielder Jose Tabata has been outrighted to Indianapolis. He was designated for assignment last Friday and cleared waivers. Due to his contract, it’s no surprise that he has now cleared waivers twice this year. Tabata is owed over $9 M in the next two seasons, which means he will likely accept the assignment to AAA, rather than elect to become a free agent, where he won’t get anywhere near the same amount of money. Tabata hit .282/.314/.333 in 80 games for the Pirates this season.
