4 Comments

Pirates GM Neal Huntington confirmed in an appearance on 93.7 The Fan that the team is interested in bringing back outfielder Travis Snider, as Dan Zangrilli reports. Snider was released by the Orioles on Saturday.

Snider, 27, hit a mediocre .237/.318/.341 with three home runs and 20 RBI with the Orioles, despite facing right-handed pitching in 83.5 percent of his 236 plate appearances.

The Pirates acquired Snider from the Blue Jays at the trade deadline in 2012. They traded him to the Orioles in January this year. He appeared to figure things out last year, batting .264/.338/.438 with 13 home runs and 38 RBI in 359 plate appearances, but he was unable to replicate it in 2015.
