Jen Langosch tweets that the Pirates have scheduled a press conference with Jose Tabata and Neal Huntington. They will be discussing Tabata's contract extension which was reported by various sources on Friday. Interestingly, it was the national media, not any local source, that got it first. UPDATE: The deal has been officially announced. Six-years, including a restructuring of his 2011 deal, and team options in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
