Jose Tabata “looks totally checked-out” in Triple-A

Per Rob Biertempfel on Sulia:

Pirates OF Jose Tabata “looks totally checked-out” in minors, Triple-A Indy broadcaster Will Flemming told TribLiveRadio today: “Not only has he not been not sharp offensively, but his effort on defense at times has been totally appalling. Tabata has cost the Indians games and runs with just a complete lack of effort, getting after baseballs and with throws.”

Since his demotion to Indianapolis, Tabata is hitting .282/.338/.338 in 71 at-bats. Obviously, it would be really, really nice if he could turn things around because he is still very young and can (and should) be a contributor at the ML level for years to come. Hopefully he gets over whatever he’s going through right now and starts playing like the Jose Tabata we saw in 2008-2010 after the Pirates acquired him.

    I hope Jose Tabata comes to grips with what is bothering him. We all get knocked down in life… its what we do next that counts. Please get up and dust yourself off and get back into the game. “Our attitude determines our altitude.” ¬†We (I) miss you being on the team in Pittsburgh! Don’t let whatever is bothering you… Win!
