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

Aug 29 - 3:31 PM

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.
Aug 13 - 10:42 PM

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.
Aug 11 - 11:18 PM

Travis Snider singled, homered, drew a walk, and scored three runs as the Pirates emerged victorious against the Dodgers by a 6-1 margin on Wednesday.

Snider's second-inning solo home run off of Dan Haren was his first easy trot around the bases since June 22. He has played sparingly and carries a mediocre .252/.333/.374 slash line along with five home runs and 17 RBI in 184 plate appearances.
Jul 23 - 9:59 PM

Travis Snider went 2-for-3 with his fourth home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Getting a rare start in place of Starling Marte, Snider connected on a Jason Hammel pitch to give the Pirates an early lead. Snider also singled in the game, and his two hits were more than he'd had combined since June 9. He'll continue to be a part-time player in a loaded outfield and may even be a roster casualty when Neil Walker returns from injury next week.

Travis Snider was reinstated from suspension Sunday.

Snider served a two-game punishment (on Friday and Saturday) for his involvement in last month's brawl with the Brewers. He tried to appeal, but Major League Baseball upheld the initial ruling. Snider is batting just .222/.315/.358 in 81 at-bats this season.

Major League Baseball has upheld Travis Snider's two-game suspension.

The suspension was for his involvement in last month's brawl with the Brewers. Snider will begin serving the suspension Friday.
May 9 - 3:30 PM

Serving as the leadoff hitter for the second time this month, Travis Snider went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

Snider also drew a walk and drove in what turned out to be the deciding runs in the second inning. The Pirates have moved Starling Marte down in the batting order as they try to get him going, which means unconventional leadoff hitters like Snider have gotten a shot in the leadoff spot. Marte will eventually return to the top of the order.
May 7 - 4:09 PM

Travis Snider is appealing his two-game suspension.

Snider was handed the punishment for his involvement in Sunday's benches-clearing brawl at PNC Park. He will be available to play until his appeal is heard by MLB.
Apr 22 - 4:15 PM

Travis Snider was suspended two games by MLB for his actions in Sunday's benches-clearing brawl with the Brewers.

Snider was right in the middle of the fracas, tackling Carlos Gomez before eventually being punched by Martin Maldonado, so it's not surprising to see him get punished. No word yet on whether he will appeal the suspension or begin serving it immediately.
