Sunday Notes: Snider’s Swing, Starting Matusz, Backstop Academia, Grapefruit Nuggets

Travis Snider is a breakout candidate. Sound familiar? He’s owned the label for years, and maybe – just maybe – this will be the season he finally explodes. It’s not implausible.

Pirates send Travis Snider to the Orioles for Steven Tarpley

The Pirates and Orioles agreed on a trade to send Travis Snider to Baltimore tonight in exchange for minor league lefty Steven Tarpley and a player to be named later. On its face, this seems like a bit of a strange move for a contender to make: even if you assume that Gregory Polanco was going to start in right field over Snider (he was), Snider is a relatively cheap, relatively...

Travis Snider traded to Orioles

The Pirates sent Travis Snider to Baltimore in exchange for pitching prospect Stephen Tarpley and another player to be named later on Tuesday night.  Just when it was looking like the Bucs were done making moves for the winter, Neal Huntington struck again…although this one is a bit of a head scratcher so far.

WATCH: Travis Snider takes ball to the jaw going for catch

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Travis Snider’s face does not catch popups nearly as well as his glove. During the fourth inning of Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds, Snider attempted to make a sliding catch near the right-field foul line, only to have the fly ball just miss his glove and instead nail him right in the jaw.
