Travis Snider LF/RF PIT 1 Day
Snider may find his playing time cut into with the anticipated return of Andrew McCutchen on Tuesday.
Snider went 2-for-4 with a double Monday and is batting .350/.409/.638 with six homers and 18 RBI in 88 plate appearances since July 12. With Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco entrenched in the corner outfield spots, that leaves Snider on the outside looking in. Snider, like Pedro Alvarez, practiced at first base recently, but it's unlikely the Bucs try another untested player at first in the midst of a pennant race. Snider owners may have to wait for another injury before he receives steady playing time again.

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.
