José Tabata returned to the Altoona lineup this morning. He was 0-2 with an infield popup and a centerfield flyout, while Altoona went down 1-3 to New Britain, and Daniel Moskos actually had a pretty good outing (7IP 2ER 1BB 3K) but got the hose on the loss. He's now sitting on a pretty remarkable 2.55 GO/AO ratio, but he can't strike anyone out.
Tabata was replaced by Gorkys Hernández, who also went 0-2, presumably just to ease him back into the game. Hernández didn't start, probably with this plan in mind in a kill-two-birds-with-one-stone approach since he has been slumping since joining Altoona. I for one will be interested to see who moves out of CF when Tabata is back at "full strength".
Hopefully these two both start hitting and make Altoona a little more interesting (than watching paint dry), especially since Lincoln has been promoted.
