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.

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.
May 12 - 3:22 AM

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.
Apr 22 - 3:08 PM

Travis Snider suffered a black eye and a cut under his left eye as a result of Sunday's benches-clearing brawl with the Brewers.

Fortunately, he managed to avoid a fracture or a concussion, and is fine to play Monday. Snider is likely looking at a suspension for his actions during the fracas.
Apr 21 - 4:16 PM

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.
Apr 9 - 11:03 PM

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.
Mar 5 - 4:27 PM

Travis Snider went 0-for-4 as a DH in his spring debut Sunday against the Phillies.

Snider missed the first three games with a cut finger on his left hand.
Mar 2 - 4:43 PM

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.

He cut the finger earlier this month while slicing potatoes. Snider isn't ready to play the outfield yet, but it sounds like he's close. "One day at a time," Snider said. "I'm getting there."
