Travis Snider slugged his second home run of the season, helping the Orioles hold off the Phillies on Wednesday.
Snider made it a 6-1 game in the fifth inning when he took Kevin Correia way out to right-center for a tape-measure home run. The 27-year-old may be starting to heat up as he's hit safely in eight of 10 June games and has registered an extra-base hit in three consecutive games. Snider is batting .262/.344/.372 with 17 RBI this season. Jun 17 - 10:03 PM

Travis Snider went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Orioles topped the White Sox 6-3 in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader.

With the emergence of Jimmy Paredes, Snider has seen his playing time cut a bit in recent weeks. His two-hit effort on Thursday raised his season slash to .265/.351/.367 to go along with 10 RBI.
May 28 - 9:38 PM

Travis Snider is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Yankees.

He's taking a seat against left-hander CC Sabathia. Delmon Young will start in left field.
Apr 14 - 3:03 PM

Travis Snider went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Sunday's slugfest loss to the Blue Jays.

The Orioles entered the fifth inning trailing 8-4, but Snider's three-run bomb off of Drew Hutchison brought them back into the game. Snider is batting .389 (7-for-18) to start the season. Given his resurgence last season with the Pirates, he's worth a flier in fantasy leagues.
Apr 12 - 5:27 PM

Travis Snider will bat third against the Rays on Tuesday.

Snider batted fifth on Opening Day and went 3-for-4 with two RBI, but he's getting bumped up in the order now that Chris Davis is back from his suspension. It's an attractive spot for Snider, who's gaining momentum in fantasy leagues. Steve Pearce will hit second against Rays right-hander Nate Karns while Davis will bat fifth and Manny Machado slides down to sixth.

Travis Snider went 3-for-4 with two RBI in a win over the Rays on Opening Day on Monday.

Snider knocked in the first run of the game with an RBI single in the top of the first inning and eventually added some insurance with an RBI double in the eighth. The 27-year-old quietly hit .264 with 13 home runs and a .776 OPS over 140 games with the Pirates last season and could thrive with the move to Baltimore.
Apr 6 - 6:30 PM

Travis Snider launched a two-run homer in Thursday's loss to the Braves.

Snider didn't start the game but came off the bench to deliver a blast off of Chien-Ming Wang in the seventh inning. The outfielder entered Sunday's game without a single RBI this spring but now has a couple longballs and three RBI over the last five days.
Apr 2 - 9:45 PM

Travis Snider hit his first spring homer Sunday off the Twins' Ricky Nolasco.

Snider hadn't only been without a homer, but he hadn't even driven in a run in 39 at-bats while hitting .256/.310/.282 this spring. He's something of a mixed-league sleeper this year because of the inviting right-field porch in Baltimore, but he's disappointed before.
Mar 29 - 5:18 PM

Orioles acquired OF Travis Snider from the Pirates in exchange for LHP Stephen Tarpley and a player to be named later.

The Orioles have been searching for a left-handed bat all offseason and have finally landed one. A former top prospect, Snider has largely been a disappointment to this point, but he'll turn just 27 next week and had a big second half last season, batting .288/.356/.524 with nine homers. He could be a good fit at Camden Yards, a park that caters well to left-handed power.
Jan 27 - 8:46 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the trade sending Travis Snider to the Orioles is "believed to be done."

The Pirates are expected to receive left-handed pitching prospect Stephen Tarpley and a player to be named later in return. Tarpley, who will turn 22 next month, holds a 3.31 ERA while striking out a batter per inning in his first 87 innings in the lower minors. He is not among the Orioles' top 10 prospects as listed by Baseball America. Snider will make $2.1 million in 2015 and is arbitration-eligible for a final time in 2016.
Jan 27 - 8:25 PM

According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles and Pirates "are closing in on the framework" of a trade involving outfielder Travis Snider.

Connolly says the O's would give up one or two minor leaguers who aren't currently on the 40-man roster if this deal can be completed. Snider had a very good second half for the Pirates in 2014, but the 26-year-old is behind star prospect Gregory Polanco on the depth chart in right field. He'd be a pretty nice fit for the Orioles, who've missed out on all the decent free agent outfielders. Pittsburgh avoided arbitration with Snider on January 16 with a one-year, $2.1 million deal. He's under control through 2016.
Jan 27 - 5:31 PM

Pirates and OF Travis Snider avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.1 million contract.

Snider was eligible for arbitration for a second time this winter. The outfielder closed strong last year with a .288/.356/.524 batting line and nine homers in the second half, but he's behind Gregory Polanco on the right field depth chart.
Jan 16 - 4:15 PM

Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles had preliminary discussions with the Pirates about a Brian Matusz-for-Travis Snider swap.

However, there hasn't been much progress in talks. Now that Nick Markakis and Nelson Cruz have signed elsewhere, the Orioles are monitoring the free agent and trade market for outfielders. Michael Morse, Delmon Young, and the Phillies' Marlon Byrd have been mentioned as possibilities.

Travis Snider went 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Thursday's win against the Braves.

Snider put the Buccos up early with a first inning solo home run off of David Hale. The outfielder has had a nice two-week surge, batting .295 (13-for-44) with three home runs and seven RBI since the 11th of the month. On the season, he's batting .264/.338/.437 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI in 347 plate appearances.

Travis Snider hit his 12th home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

Snider got the start in right field against tough lefty Alex Wood, and he rewarded his manager's faith with a solo shot that tied the game in the fifth inning. The homer was his only hit in three at-bats on the night. Snider is batting .257/.332/.422 in a part-time role this season.
