Pirates place Jose Tabata on DL

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed outfielder Jose Tabata
on the 15-day disabled list with a left quad strain, retroactive to
June 27. Infielder Josh Harrison has been recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis to take Tabata's roster spot.

Tabata, 22, suffered the injury in the first inning of Sunday's
4-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox in Pittsburgh and was carted off
the field.

The Pirates (39-38) are four games behind the Milwaukee Brewers in the
NL Central and will open a series in Toronto on
Tuesday night.

Tabata is hitting .265, with three home runs and 14 stolen bases
this season.
