What's not to like about Jose Tabata?

Top Gun Tabata Wraps Up Winter Ball

Watch Out MLB

Much ado has been made about Jose Tabata playing winter ball this season. We took a quick look at the stats Tabata compiled this winter.  One of the first things we noticed was that he didn’t finish strong by piling up hits, but look closer.  Tabata reached base in nine of his past ten games.

He hit well against right handers, in fact all of his hits came against pitchers that threw right handed.  He was 0-for-4 against southpaws with two walks and a strikeout.  Five of his thirteen walks came with the bases empty.  Tabata hit over .350 with runners in scoring position.

Perhaps the biggest thing for Tabata?  He stayed healthy. 

82 percent of RumBunter readers feel Tabata will hit 15 HR in 2011.
