Pirates pick up Michael Morse from the Dodgers for Jose Tabata

Jon Heyman reports that the Pirates have acquired Michael Morse from the Dodgers in exchange for Jose Tabata.

Morse was DFA’d by the Dodgers after they got him in that big Braves-Marlins-Dodgers deal. He’s having a bad year –he’s hit only .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances — but he can play first base against left-handed pitching and thus likely provides the Pirates more flexibility¬†than the outfielder Tabata does.

As for the Dodgers, you have to figure they DFA Tabata too, right?
