Travis Snider has setback with wrist injury at Triple-A

Earlier this week the Blue Jays demoted starting left fielder Eric Thames to Triple-A despite the guy he beat out for the job in spring training, Travis Snider, being on the minor league disabled list with a wrist injury.

And now any thoughts of Snider being ready to step back into the Blue Jays’ lineup are gone, as Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that he “has yet to make any significant progress” and has been sent to the team’s spring training complex to rehab further.

Snider was putting up big numbers at Triple-A before the injury, hitting .333 with a 1.015 OPS in 26 games, but he’s been in pain since April 26 and there’s still no timetable for his return.

All of which means the Blue Jays will apparently go with light-hitting speedster Rajai Davis as their regular left fielder for the foreseeable future.
