Travis Snider raking while Gregory Polanco learning


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Travis Snider has continued to take away at-bats from far-more-ballyhooed Pirates rookie Gregory Polanco.

Despite an 0-for-5 night on Friday, Snider has earned the playing time. He owned an 11-game hitting streak previously in which he had six multi-hit games, scored seven runs and rose his batting average from .242 to .277. Polanco, on the other hand, has just one hit in his last 27 at-bats.

"Snider's been torrid," Clift Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Friday. "Thirty-five games left, another day, another opportunity for Polanco to get some work done. The good side of it is when we've  had some time to settle him down a little bit, when he has been back plugged in he's been very fresh and usually shows a lot of improvement."

Hurdle added that he wants Polanco to revert to the swing that proved successful upon his promotion from the minors. He began the season on an 11-game hitting streak that vaulted his average to .365 and allowed him to score 11 runs.

"I think we're trying to show him the fact once his front foot hits, that his hands are set in a position," Hurdle said. "There's been, I think, a little more movement than necessary with his hands. ... Sometimes you don't know whether it's fatigue, whether it's anxiety, whether it's the ptiches, but they're pitching him up a lot more. That's no secret. He's doing a lot more up-chasing than he had done when he first got here."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Snider has already matched his high home run total for a month with his three in August, all having come over the last three games. He is hitting .257/.330/.433 with 10 home runs and 32 RBI in 210 at-bats overall.
