Hamstring injury forces Travis Snider out of Wednesday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) The Pirates have announced that right fielder Travis Snider was removed from the Wednesday game with left hamstring discomfort. He will undergo treatment and be evaluated again Thursday.

Snider was taken out for a pinch-runner in the third inning after beating out a bunt single.


Travis Snider out of Wednesday game with apparent injury

(8/27/2014) Pirates right fielder Travis Snider has been removed from the Wednesday game against St. Louis. He was replaced by a pinch-runner in the bottom of the third inning after beating out a bunt single. No specifics about the injury are yet available.

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."

Travis Snider gets the nod for opening day


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) 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.
