Analysis: Tabata, who Los Angeles assigned to Triple-A Oklahoma City, never lived up to expectations after signing a $21-million contract in 2011. He spent most of the last two seasons bouncing back and forth between Pittsburgh and Triple-A Indianapolis, his most notable contribution this season breaking up Max Scherzer's perfect game when the Washington ace dinged Tabata in the left elbow with two outs in the ninth inning on June 20.

Analysis: Tabata hit .289 in 27 games with Pittsburgh this season after beginning the year in Triple-A Indianapolis. Tabata, who signed a six-year extension with the Pirates in 2011, has struggled to stay in the big leagues over the past two years. He spoiled Scherzer's chance at a perfect game with two outs in the ninth inning on June 20 when he was hit by a pitch.
