News: Snider (hamstring) is out of the lineup Friday against the Reds. Impact: Snider left Wednesday's game with the injury and missed Thursday as well. The team recently demoted Gregory Polanco and promoted Jose Tabata, who will start in right field Friday and bat second for the Pirates.(RotoWire, )

News: Snider left Wednesday's game with left hamstring discomfort. Impact: Snider reached base on a bunt single in the bottom of the third inning, but appeared to tweak his hamstring while doing so. He was lifted for pinch-runner Jose Tabata and will undergo treatment for the injury. The Pirates are expected to update Snider's status after reevaluating his condition Thursday.(RotoWire, )

News: Snider will bat second and play right field Friday night against the Brewers. Impact: The outfielder is batting .459 (17-for-37) with three homers and seven RBI in his last 10 games. Snider is now even playing ahead of Gregory Polanco in right field, though that will likely change whenever he cools off. The former Blue Jay is also playing well in the field, making it difficult for manager Clint Hurdle to even consider sitting him right now.(RotoWire, )

News: Snider went 2-for-3 with a run scored Wednesday against the Braves. Impact: With Andrew McCutchen's return from the disabled list Tuesday, Snider will almost certainly lose playing time in the coming weeks. He continues to swing a very hot bat, however, which will likely lead manager Clint Hurdle to find ways to keep him in the mix for the near term.(RotoWire, )

News: Snider could lose playing time with the anticipated return of Andrew McCutchen on Tuesday. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Snider went 2-for-4 with a couple of singles in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Nationals. Impact: Snider finished up a red-hot week at the plate by extending his current hitting streak to eight games. Over this stretch, the 26-year-old outfielder is batting an even .400 with three homers, three doubles and seven RBI. Snider should continue to see regular playing time as long as Andrew McCutchen (ribs) remains out.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Aug 12, 2014
News: Snider went 3 for 5 with two homers and four RBIs in Monday's 11-6 win over Detroit. Impact: Snider hadn't been doing much before this effort, going 5 for 31 with no homers and four RBIs over his previous 11 games.(STATS, 5:12pm)
