José Nicolas Tábata (supposedly born August 12, 1988 in Estado Anzoátegui, Venezuela) is a professional baseball outfielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

SAN DIEGO -- Andrew Cashner is ''totally aware'' the San Diego Padres have never had a no-hitter in their mostly sad-sack history, which has now reached 46 seasons and 7,176 games. After throwing his second one-hitter in a span of five starts, the big Texan is the leading candidate to end that drought. ''That's one of my goals. I definitely want a no-hitter,'' Cashner said after allowing just one single and striking out 11 in a 6-0 victory against the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. ''I don't think there's any reason why I can't build off this. When you get late in a game and your pitch count's high, you've really got to bear down and grind through. I think this will build toward something down the road.'' Cashner took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Rajai Davis hit a one-out flare single into center field, just past the glove of outstretched second baseman Jedd Gyorko. Davis stole second and third, and Ian Kinsler walked before Miguel Cabrera hit into a double play. Cashner ended his remarkable ...

BRADENTON, Fla. — There were two notable things about Jose Tabata last season: the Pirates outfielder reported to spring training with a tattoo of a set of red lips on his neck; and he ended the year playing for a team in the postseason, albeit as a bench player, and did not make a peep about losing...

As of right now I think the Pirates biggest flaw is as follows: The lack of power at first bast and right field. Right now they have 4 platoon players in those positions. Last year the combination of Garrett Jones, Gaby Sanchez, Jose Tabata, Andrew Lambo and Travis Snider produced 31 home runs. 15 of those came from Garrett Jones who was so obviously inadequate that Marlon Byrd was able to come in and take his job - NO QUESTIONS ASKED. (One good thing about Marlon Byrd is he forever silenced the Garrett Jones fans on this page - of course Jones helped do that himself with his declining production). My point is we lost the one player who produced half of those home runs so unless some combination of the remaining guys takes up the slack the Bucs have a real BIG problem. Now if Tabata can establish himself as our leadoff batter with consistent production in the No. 1 spot and if Starlin Marte can improve his power numbers then he could move down to No. 5. That would be great. I have little faith tha ...

It's so nice to see former such as Austin Jackson, Mark Melancon, Jose Tabata, Jose Veras, Russell Martin & AJ Burnett in playoffs
The Pirates have quite a few ex-Yankees. Jose Tabata, Mark Melancon, AJ Burnett, Russell Martin. All who are big parts in this Pirates team
I will never say I told you so,because I hate to debate stupid people.But,guys like David Halpern and others,who scoffed at my suggestion in June that the Pirates were going to be in the race to the end,were extremely naive.Pittsburgh's pitching was much better.Russell Martin gave them great catching,a clutch bat and handled the pitching staff beautifully.Starling Marte gave them speed,Jose Tabata and Josh Harrison gave them depth.Jason Grilli and Mark Melancon,two setup guys,embraced the role of the closer this year.Two late season acquisitions,Marlon Byrd and Justin Morneau,made their lineup more versatile,and in the process,gave more depth to their bench.Those two really made life easier for Clint Hurdle,who is a very good manager.
Nice play by Jordy Mercer.I did not,however,think those were smart moves by Clint Hurdle in the previous inning.You waste Jose Tabata in a situation,which isn't desperate for you,and Clint Barmes always hit the Cardinals,as a Pirate and in Colorado.

Manager Clint Hurdle has chosen a nine-man pitching staff that includes starters Francisco Liriano, who will get the ball for the 8:07 p.m. ET game against the Reds, and Gerrit Cole, who will be available if early relief is needed. The rest of the bullpen will include the seven relief mainstays: Jeanmar Gomez, Bryan Morris, Vin Mazzaro, lefties Tony Watson and Justin Wilson, setup man Mark Melancon and closer Jason Grilli. As expected, the Bucs are going with three catchers -- Russell Martin, John Buck and Tony Sanchez -- and a full complement of infielders, with both Garrett Jones and Gaby Sanchez available behind starting first baseman Justin Morneau. The other infielders include Pedro Alvarez, Clint Barmes, Neil Walker, Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer. The only questionable call was on the fifth outfielder along with starters Starling Marte, Andrew McCutchen and Marlon Byrd, and No. 4 outfielder Jose Tabata. The club chose Travis Snider -- who has three pinch-hit homers this season, over another lefty-h ...
