Pittsburgh Pirates OF Jose Tabata (undisclosed) is leaving the game early Wednesday, April 16, after slamming into the left field wall while making a catch. His head and shoulder collided with the wall.
Fantasy Tip: Tabata hit the wall extremely hard, but it's unknown if his injury is to his head, shoulder or something else. He walked off the field gingerly with trainers helping him. Travis Snider figures to see increased playing time, depending on the nature of Tabata's injury. Also, the Bucs could bring up prospect Gregory Blanco, who is off to a red hot start in the minors.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are confident using OF Travis Snider in the second spot of the order, bridging the gap between leadoff hitter OF Starling Marte and third spot hitter OF Andrew McCutchen. "We're optimistic that the (on-base percentage) will play out in the major league level close to what it was in the minor leagues," manager Clint Hurdle said. "He had the best spring we've seen. Moved around in the outfield and on the bases the best since we've had him."

Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle continues to try and figure out the team's left field and first base positions this spring. 2B Michael Martinez, who is a switch hitter and can play second base and the outfield, is the only one who has distinguished himself in the game Monday, March 11. OFs Andrew Lambo, Jaff Decker, Chris Dickerson, Chris McGuiness and Travis Snider and 1B Travis Ishikawa are all in the mix. "We'll just keep giving them opportunities to play. We'll keep giving them at-bats and see where they take them," said Hurdle, who has begun to divide what he refers to as "separation" among the candidates. "But I'm not gonna seed them for you."
