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.

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.

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.

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.

The Pirates are optimistic that Travis Snider (hamstring) will be ready to return to the lineup this weekend.

Snider hasn't started since Wednesday due to a sore left hamstring, though he did pinch-hit on Monday. The Cubs will throw three lefties at the Pirates this weekend, so it's unclear how much Snider will play.

Travis Snider (hamstring) lined out as a pinch-hitter Monday against the Cardinals.

Snider hadn't appeared in a game since last Wednesday due to left hamstring discomfort. It looks like he might not be far off from returning to the lineup.

Travis Snider (hamstring) remained out of the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

Snider hasn't played since leaving Wednesday's contest with left hamstring discomfort. It's not clear when he'll return to action. Andrew Lambo is getting a start in right field Sunday.

Travis Snider (hamstring) is not in the Pirates' lineup Friday.

Snider exited Wednesday's contest with left hamstring discomfort. The Pirates haven't established a timetable for him, but usually hamstring ailments result in players sitting out for a bit. Jose Tabata is in right field Friday.

Travis Snider left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with left hamstring discomfort.

Snider tweaked the hamstring after beating out an infield single in the third inning. It's not clear at this point how long it might sideline him. Jose Tabata would stand to benefit if Snider is out a while, though the Pirates could also give Gregory Polanco another look.

Travis Snider left Wednesday's game versus the Cardinals with an apparent leg injury.

Snider tweaked something after beating out an infield single in the third inning. The outfielder entered Wednesday in a 1-for-19 funk at the dish. Jose Tabata pinch-ran for Snider and would stand to benefit if Snider is out a while, though the Pirates could also give Gregory Polanco another look.

Travis Snider walked and hit a two-run home run in four plate appearances, but the Pirates were defeated by the Tigers on Wednesday.

Snider belted a two-run home run to right field in the fourth, pushing the Pirates' lead to 4-1 at the time. The outfielder may be starting a hot streak, as he homered twice on Monday while doubling in each of his previous two games entering Wednesday. He's now slashing a respectable .257/.330/.433 with 10 home runs and 32 RBI.

Travis Snider homered twice, doubled and knocked in four runs as the Pirates topped the Tigers 11-6 on Monday.

It was Snider's third career two-homer game, but the other two came back in 2009, when he was a 21-year-old rookie. He took relievers Justin Miller and Phil Coke deep tonight, with the latter homer becoming his first off a left-hander since 2012. Expect Snider to see regular action against right-handers for as long as Andrew McCutchen is out. Just don't expect any more games quite as good as this one.
