BRADENTON, Fla. — The Pirates appear to have dodged a bullet with prized-outfielder prospect Jose Tabata.

A magnetic resonance imaging exam of Tabata's right shoulder today revealed "no structural concerns," according to GM Neal Huntington. "He does have some mild rotator cuff inflammation, but is able to return to activities as (the pain is) tolerated."

Tabata had the MRI exam earlier today after reporting some soreness in his shoulder. Tabata was acquired last July in the Xavier Nady trade and is rated the Pirates' third-best prospect.
