Corner outfielder/first baseman Travis Snider, who played last season in Pittsburgh, has reunited with the Pirates after being released by the Orioles last week. Chris Cotillo of SBNation had the news first.

Snider hit just .237 with three homers and a .659 OPS in 69 games for the Orioles, but spent part of three seasons with the Pirates and posted a solid .776 OPS in a part-time role last year.

He’ll report to Triple-A for now, could figures to be a September call-up as a left-handed bench bat. Baltimore is paying him $2.1 million.
