|Travis Snider goes yard again vs. Cubs |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/10/14) Pirates outfielder Travis Snider homered for the second time in as many days -- this time as a pinch-hitter -- on Thursday against the Cubs.
Snider took James Russell deep for a two-run home run, sparking a five-run rally in the seventh inning. He struck out swinging in the eighth and finished 1 for 2 with a run scored and an RBI in a 5-4 victory. He is hitting .267 with two homers and four RBI in his first 30 at-bats to start the season.

(4/10/14) The Pirates managed to score five runs on just five hits Wednesday against the Cubs, and they all came on solo home runs.
Third baseman Pedro Alvarez got the scoring started with his fifth-inning shot, and he followed that up with one more in the ninth. The Pirates also got a two home-run game out of catcher Russell Martin, while Travis Snider added his own longball in the 7-5 loss.
Alvarez now has four home runs on the season, while Snider and Martin both went deep for the first time in Wednesday's game.
|Travis Snider gets the nod for opening day |

(3/31/14) Pirates outfielder Travis Snider will start Monday against the Cubs.
Jose Tabata was thought to be the starter at the position, but Snider's start could indicate it's more of a platoon. Snider hit .340 in 47 at-bats this spring, so it's possible the team feels more comfortable utilizing his skills against a right-handed pitcher. Snider will hit second.
|Report: Pirates could put two outfielders on trading block |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/18/14) The Pirates could be interested in trading outfielders Jose Tabata and Travis Snider, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
However, a hurdle in trading Tabata could be his contract, which has three years and $12.25 million left on it. The Pirates' front office still likes Snider, but prospect Gregory Polanco has been very impressive this spring.
|Travis Snider homers in three-hit performance |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/5/14) Pirates outfielder Travis Snider went 3 for 3 a home run and three RBI in his team's 6-4 win over the Blue Jays Wednesday.
Snider got a late start to the spring after suffering a cooking-related injury to his finger in February. Wednesday's big line makes him 4 for 9 through his first three spring games.
By the Numbers: Better late than never?
We've been let down by Travis Snider, Phil Hughes and others in the past, so why should they get the benefit of the doubt now? Al Melchior spotlights a few potential late bloomers.
Do Elvis Andrus and Mike Leake have room to grow?
These two players have yet to reach their chronological peak, but do they still have time to break out?
Prospects Report: Spring(er) has sprung
Owners didn't have to wait long for top prospect George Springer to arrive. Scott White touches on his potential in Fantasy while Michael Hurcomb spotlights some other minor leaguers.
Pirates, Reds hit 10 HRs before game is suspended
CINCINNATI (AP) Maybe it's good this one got suspended. Gave everybody a chance to dry off a bit, catch their breath and let those unbelievable numbers start to sink in.
Pirates, Reds hit 10 HRs before game is suspended
CINCINNATI (AP) Neil Walker and Gaby Sanchez hit back-to-back homers twice, and the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds combined for 10 homers in only six innings before rain forced a suspension with the score tied 7-all Monday night.
|After bombing in his first full season with the Pirates last year, Travis Snider may not get another shot at regular playing time. He hit .215 with a .614 OPS, both career lows. And considering how disappointing he was all those years with the Blue Jays, that's saying something. Granted, he'll barely be 26 on opening day, but instead of progressing with age, he's only regressed since breaking into the big leagues as a 20-year-old in 2008. And it's not like he hasn't gotten opportunities. Now, with slugging prospect Andrew Lambo entering the scene and Jose Tabata still in the mix, there isn't much of an opening for Snider. Whether he was promoted too fast or not is irrelevant now. He is where he is, and where he is, most likely, is the Pirates bench. That makes him potentially undraftable even in NL-only leagues.
