Jose Tabata is at .237/.314/.282 for Trenton. He has nine extra-base hits and 27 RBI in 241 at-bats. A .596 OPS?
Tabata is only 19 and it’s no crime to spend another half-season in Single A ball at that age. Clearly the Eastern League is eating him up. It’ll be interesting to see what the Yankees do with him.
Meanwhile, Staten Island opened its season last night and opens at home tonight. Bring out the switch-pitcher. Taylor Grote had two hits for Staten Island last night.
