Pirates purchased the contract of outfielder Travis Snider from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Snider was re-signed by the Pirates two weeks ago after being let go by the Orioles. He played in 10 games at Indy, hitting .314/.375/.429 with a homer. The Pirates won't have many starts available for him in the outfield, but he will get a look as one of the team's top pinch-hitters. Sep 1 - 4:32 PM

Pirates signed OF Travis Snider to a minor league contract.

Snider was released by the Orioles earlier this month after hitting a disappointing .237/.318/.341 with three homers and 20 RBI in 69 games. He'll knock off the rust at Triple-A Indianapolis for a couple weeks before being added to the Pirates' roster next month. Snider batted .243/.315/.380 with 19 homers over parts of three seasons with Pittsburgh from 2012-14.
Aug 19 - 3:26 PM

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that he's reached out to Travis Snider's reps and has interest in bringing the outfielder back.

Snider was officially cut loose by the Orioles on Saturday after hitting a disappointing .237/.318/.341 with three homers and 20 RBI in 69 games for them. The outfielder was great for the Pirates in the second half last season, though, so a reunion makes some sense, especially since he can be had cheap now.
Aug 16 - 12:23 PM

Orioles released OF Travis Snider.

Snider was designated for assignment last week, and it appears as though the club was unable to find a match to trade him elsewhere. The 27-year-old outfielder hit .237/.318/.341 with three homers and 20 RBI in 69 games with the O's. He'll look to latch on elsewhere.

Orioles designated OF Travis Snider for assignment.

Snider had some sleeper appeal coming into the season after a strong second half last year in Pittsburgh, but it just hasn't worked out with the O's. He's batted only .237/.318/.341 with three homers over 69 games this season to lose his roster spot. Snider figures to pass through waivers unclaimed given his $2.1 million salary.
Aug 7 - 5:59 PM

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.
