Pirates sign OF Travis Snider to minors deal
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/20/15) The Pirates have officially signed outfielder Travis Snider to a minor-league deal on Thursday. Snider, who was released by the Orioles last week, spent parts of three seasons with the Pirates.
Snider was traded to Pittsburgh by the Blue Jays in the middle of the 2012 season. He stayed there until he was dealt to Baltimore prior to the start of the 2015 campaign. In his prior tenure with the Pirates, Snider hit .243 with 19 home runs.

Orioles DFA Travis Snider, promote Junior Lake
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/7/15) The Orioles have designated for assignment veteran Travis Snider and promoted fellow outfielder Junior Lake from Triple-A Norfolk, per Comcast.
Snider tailed off after a strong run in June. He has seen limited playing time recently and is just 3-for-36 since July 1.
Lake, who arrived in Baltimore via the Cubs last week, has also fallen on hard times after earning 544 at-bats over the past two seasons. He owns a slash line this year of .224/.274/.345. He is set to start as the designated hitter Friday night against the host Angels.
Orioles OF Travis Snider batting .333 in last 10 games
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/29/15) Orioles outfielder Travis Snider homered in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Indians, helping Baltimore to an 8-0 win. He hit a solo home run off Toru Murata in the fourth inning for his third home run this season.
Snider is batting .333 (12 for 36) in his last 10 games, raising his season average from .252 to .269 in that span. He also has one triple, two home runs, four doubles, five RBI, nine runs, four walks and 12 strikeouts in his last 10 games.
|2014 summary: Though he was widely considered a bust after failing in repeated opportunities with the Blue Jays while still in his early 20s, something seemed to click for Travis Snider in his age-26 season. The Pirates weren't committed to him from the get-go, but even with the promotion of top prospect Gregory Polanco, it became increasingly clear they couldn't take Snider out of the lineup. He wasn't tearing the cover off the ball, but by 2014 standards, he was a solid offensive contributor, hitting 13 home runs in 322 at-bats with an OPS better than Bryce Harper's, Christian Yelich's and Kole Calhoun's.|
Playing time status: Still, Pirates general manager Neal Huntington declared Polanco the Pirates' starting right fielder at the start of the offseason and then solidified it by dealing Snider to the Orioles. That's only good news for his Fantasy value, though, because now he figures to play every day. You might think that because he bats left-handed, he could slip into a platoon role, but he actually hit lefties (.381 batting average, 1.054 OPS) much better than righties (.246, .734) last year.
2015 outlook: Though Snider took a big step forward last year, his on-again, off-again role prevented him from making a real impact in mixed leagues, keeping him off the radar, most likely, to begin 2015. He may go undrafted in standard mixed leagues as a result, but he's a player to monitor on the waiver wire to begin the year.
