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.

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Travis Snider (toe) took batting practice on Tuesday, Aug. 13, for the first time since landing on the disabled list in late July. He also had a "frisky" workout in the outfield.
Fantasy Tip: What got into that cat? Whatever it is, it may not be enough to play often if Andrew Lambo takes off. Lambo's questionable plate discipline may keep the door open for Snider and Jose Tabata in the long run, but Lambo has the kind of pop that the Bucs really want in there regularly.
