Hamstring should only cost Tabata two games
DENVER -- Jose Tabata said he expects to miss just two games as he recovers from the right hamstring tightness that forced him out in the first inning of Saturday's game.

The outfielder reported feeling 95 percent healthy on Sunday morning, and his level of activity suggested nothing different. Tabata spent time working out on a stationary bike, and walked without any noticeable issue.

"I feel better," Tabata said. "I want to be 100 percent to continue to play."

Tabata described the injury, which he sustained running out a ground ball on Saturday, as a cramp. He's familiar with the feeling, too, as cramping in his legs has plagued Tabata before. He had similar issues in the Minors, and Tabata also came out of his Major League debut against the Nationals last season with cramping in his right hamstring.
