Royals released OF Travis Snider.

Snider was in Royals camp this spring on a minor league contract after batting just .232/.313/.350 over 265 plate appearances last year between the Orioles and Pirates. The former top prospect should be able to find another opportunity, but he may have to accept an assignment to Triple-A.
Mar 30 - 7:00 PM

Royals signed OF Travis Snider to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The former top prospect began the 2015 season in a starting role with the O's, but hit just .237/.318/.341 in 236 plate appearances before he was eventually released. He caught on with the Pirates later in the season but the results weren't any better. It's a nice low-risk signing for the Royals, but the fantasy potential here is minimal.
Jan 30 - 3:34 PM

Travis Snider has elected free agency.

Snider had a disappointing 2015, hitting .232/.313/.350 with four homers over 87 games for the Orioles and Pirates. It's possible he might have to settle for a minor league deal this winter.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
