Travis Snider LF/RF PIT 1 Month

Travis Snider went 2-for-3 with his fourth home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Getting a rare start in place of Starling Marte, Snider connected on a Jason Hammel pitch to give the Pirates an early lead. Snider also singled in the game, and his two hits were more than he'd had combined since June 9. He'll continue to be a part-time player in a loaded outfield and may even be a roster casualty when Neil Walker returns from injury next week.

Serving as the leadoff hitter for the second time this month, Travis Snider went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

Snider also drew a walk and drove in what turned out to be the deciding runs in the second inning. The Pirates have moved Starling Marte down in the batting order as they try to get him going, which means unconventional leadoff hitters like Snider have gotten a shot in the leadoff spot. Marte will eventually return to the top of the order.

Travis Snider came off the bench to hit a two-run homer Thursday against the Cubs.

Snider didn't start against the lefty Travis Wood, but he hit for Clint Barmes as soon as Brian Schlitter took over and launched his second homer of the year. Jose Tabata is also off to a nice start, so those two will continue to split time in right field for now.
