Travis Snider came off the bench to hit a two-run homer Thursday against the Cubs.
Snider didn't start against the lefty Travis Wood, but he hit for Clint Barmes as soon as Brian Schlitter took over and launched his second homer of the year. Jose Tabata is also off to a nice start, so those two will continue to split time in right field for now. Apr 10 - 5:58 PM

Travis Snider went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs.

Snider took Jason Hammel deep in the seventh inning, one of the Pirates' five home runs in the game. Snider has yet to live up to the hype he received as a prospect and he's running out of time.

Travis Snider went 3-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBI against his old team as the Pirates topped the Blue Jays 6-4 on Wednesday.

Snider is 4-for-9 since returning from a cut finger that kept him out of the Pirates' first three games. He's competing for the starting job in right field after a disappointing 2013 season that saw him get left off the NLDS roster.

Travis Snider got the stitches removed from a finger on his left hand and will be the designated hitter in Sunday's game against the Phillies.

Travis Snider (finger) took batting practice Wednesday.

Snider cut a finger on his left hand with a kitchen knife a few days ago, but it wasn't a major concern. The 26-year-old batted just .215/.281/.333 with five homers in 285 plate appearances last season and projects to open 2014 as a backup outfielder.

Travis Snider is currently shut down from throwing after injuring a finger on his left hand while cutting sweet potatoes.

Really. It doesn't sound like a major concern at this time, but we have an early entrant in 2014's most comical injuries. On the bright side, Snider is now fully recovered from October surgery to remove bone spurs from his left foot.
Feb 18 - 9:13 AM

Pirates avoided arbitration with OF Travis Snider by agreeing to a one-year, $1.2 million contract.

Snider was in his first year of arbitration eligibility. The former top prospect has batted just .241/.303/.398 over his first six seasons and could be a non-tender candidate next winter if he doesn't pick it up this season.

Travis Snider had surgery on his left foot two weeks after the season.

The surgery remedied a joint issue and bone spurs. The injury would help explain why he faded so badly down the stretch. Snider batted just .215/.281/.333 with five home runs and 25 RBI over 285 plate appearances this past season and will have to earn his way back into the Pirates' good graces in 2014.
