Roster move: Tabata recalled; Cumpton optioned to Triple A

Justin K. Aller

* Jose Tabata has been recalled from Indianapolis and will likely start in right field tonight. Brandon Cumpton has been optioned back to the Triple A affiliate.

Tabata was placed on the disabled list on May 25 with a left oblique strain. In nine rehabilitation games with the Indians, Tabata posted a .179/.281/.214 line in 28 at bats. This is the second time that the Pirates right fielder has served a stint on the DL. In 2011 he missed 43 games with a quadriceps strain.
