Pirates' Huntington: OF Snider is 'going to get a lot of playing time'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/10/14) Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said his vision for outfielder Travis Snider is to be a spot-starter in right or left field, with the potential to be an everyday starter in the event of injury, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
"Travis is going to get a lot of playing time," Huntington said. "He's earned that, and he's a good player."
The 26-year-old Snider appeared in a career-high 140 games in 2014, batting .264 with 13 home runs, 15 doubles and 38 RBI.

Those players include: Sean Rodriguez, Neil Walker, Francisco Cervelli, Mark Melancon, Chris Stewart, Travis Snider, Pedro Alvarez, Tony Watson, Josh Harrison, Jared Hughes and Vance Worley.
Travis Snider returns to lineup
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/8/14) After missing nine straight games with a hamstring injury, Pirates outfielder Travis Snider returned to the lineup Monday at Philadelphia.
Snider was red hot before the injury, overtaking rookie Gregory Polanco for the starting right field job with a .328 (19 for 58) batting average and three home runs in 16 games. He went 0 for 4 as a pinch hitter while sidelined.
Pedro Alvarez, Travis Snider not in lineup Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/6/14) Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez and outfielder Travis Snider are not in the starting lineup for Saturday's regularly-scheduled game against the Cubs.
Alvarez hasn't played since Aug. 26 while recovering from a foot injury. Snider has been limited to two pinch-hit appearances since Aug. 27 while battling a hamstring issue.
|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, Christian Yelich and Kole Calhoun.|
Playing time status: The Pirates have already awarded the right field job to Polanco to begin the season, but it wouldn't take much for them to go back to Snider. Because he bats left-handed, he seems like a perfect candidate for a platoon role, but he actually hit lefties (.381
batting average, 1.054 OPS) much better than righties (.246, .734) last year. Better yet, the Pirates seemed to notice, starting him against six of the last nine lefties they faced.
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. If you draft Snider in an NL-only league, you're doing so with the hope an opening develops for him.
