Description: Pirates outfielder Travis Snider is dealing with tightness in his right side and is questionable for Sunday's game against St. Louis.
Insight: Snider, a former first-round draft pick, has had numerous chances to produce at the big league level but he's never been able to succeed. This season he's batting a solid .305 through the first 22 games, but without a home run and just five RBI. He does have seven doubles in 59 at-bats, but that's rarely a fantasy category.

Description: The Blue Jays traded outfielder Travis Snider to the Pirates Monday for pitcher Brad Lincoln.
Insight: Snider, a former first-round draft pick, has had myriad chances to produce at the big league level but he's never been able to sustain success. Perhaps a change of scenery will help him realize his potential, but he can be avoided outside of NL-only leagues.

Description: Blue Jays outfielder Travis Snider hit his first homer of the season Sunday against Boston as part of a 2-for-4, three-RBI game.
Insight: Snider, a former first-round draft pick, has had myriad chances to produce at the big league level but he's never been able to sustain success. Still, he hit .335 with 13 homers in 56 games with Triple-A Las Vegas this season and has started off 4-for-11 with a double and a homer since he was recalled so keep him on your radar while Jose Bautista is sidelined.

Description: The Blue Jays want promising outfielder Travis Snider to make adjustments to his swing at Triple-A. SOURCE: MLB.com
Insight: Snider appears to be heading to the minors with a positive attitude. "You have to produce at this level," Snider said. "My bat has been getting going lately, but you have to produce consistently." Look for Snider to be back up in a few weeks.

Description: Travis Snider got a rare start against a left-handed starter last night and rewarded the Blue Jays by smacking a three-run homer.
Insight: The team has said that they will give Snider more starts against lefties this season in an effort to help him become a more complete hitter. That could backfire on fantasy owners if he can't hit for average against them but at least it gives him more power potential.
 
4/3/2011 10:42:00 PM
Description: Travis Snider is off to a good start this season for the Jays. Snider picked up two more hits today, now hitting .375, and threw out Danny Valencia at home from left field.
Insight: Snider finished April last season with a .255 mark, so he's off to a good start comparably speaking this year. The Jays are high on him and you should be also. He's got 30 homer potential and hits in a great lineup. All he needs is at bats, great hitting and solid defense will deliver those.

Description: Travis Snider played his first spring training game today and went 1-2.

Description: Travis Snider took 25 swings off a tee today, as he continues to come back from a rib strain. SOURCE: MLB
Insight: It's important for Snider to get off to a solid start this year so we are hopeful that he can put this injury behind him soon and get in some serious spring training action. He needs to cut down on his strikeouts this year.

Description: Travis Snider has yet to participate in baseball-related activities because of an injury to his upper rib-cage area, MLB.com reports. Snider suffered the injury last week while playing golf in Innisbrook, Fla. He is experiencing soreness on the left side of his body in the intercostal muscles, which are located between the ribs.
Insight: It's unfortunate that he injured himself playing golf, since he should finally get the opportunity to be an everyday player for the Blue Jays this year. Snider should be ready for opening day, however. (RapidDraft.com)
