ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have reinstated second baseman Neil Walker from the 15-day disabled list and sent outfielder Jose Tabata to Triple-A Indianapolis.

The moves were made before Tuesday night's game against Tampa Bay.

Walker had been on the DL since June 9 because of an appendectomy. In 62 games this season, Walker hit .280 with 11 homers and 35 RBIs.

Tabata hit .289 with 14 RBIs in 62 games.
