- The hot rumor is that the Bucs and Jose Tabata are talking contract extension. We'll post later when we find out a little more; right now the guess is a six-year deal, which would carry him into his first year of free agency.
- C Jason Jaramillo is having a tough year at Indy. He's on the DL for the second time, now with tightness in his lower body, tweets Tribe broadcaster Scott McCauley, and needs some rest. JJ's been out since Friday.
- Last night, High A Bradenton OF Robbie Grossman became the first minor league player since Nick Swisher in 2004 to score 100 runs and walk 100 times in a season.
- The Bucs are introducing Josh Bell to the media this afternoon.
- Jim Callis of Baseball America has the total bonus money paid out by MLB clubs for the past five years. Pittsburgh and Washington are 1-2.
