Snider signed a minor-league deal with the Royals on Saturday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. This will be Snider's third team in two years, after a season split between Baltimore and Pittsburgh. The veteran is still only 27, but he is going to have to improve several facets of his game to find a regular role with the Royals, which already features Alex Gordon, Jarrod Dyson, and Paulo Orlando in the corner outfield.
Pirates outfielder Travis Snider will elect to become a free agent, per SB Nation. Snider struggled in his 87 appearances with the Orioles and Pirates this season, posting a .232/.313/.350 slash line to go along with just four home runs. He should at least get some interest in the form of a minor league contract, but it remains to be seen if Snider will find a spot with another major league club in the offseason.
Outfielder Travis Snider is back with the Pirates and Monday will make his first start with the team, hitting seventh and playing left field, since the 2014 wild-card game. Snider was dealt away to the Orioles in the offseason and then reacquired by the team in August. He hit .314 in Triple-A before being recalled by the Pirates on Sept. 1. He is hitting .239 with three homers in 72 games total this season.
Following the expansion of the active rosters, the Pirates made a handful of moves on Tuesday. Right-handed reliever Rob Scahill (forearm) was activated from the disabled list. Additionally, the Pirates recalled Jaff Decker , Bobby LaFromboise , Elias Diaz , Travis Snider and Radhames Liz from Triple-A Indianapolis.
The Pirates have officially signed outfielder Travis Snider to a minor-league deal on Thursday. Snider, who was released by the Orioles last week, spent parts of three seasons with the Pirates. Snider was traded to Pittsburgh by the Blue Jays in the middle of the 2012 season. He stayed there until he was dealt to Baltimore prior to the start of the 2015 campaign. In his prior tenure with the Pirates, Snider hit .243 with 19 home runs.
