Pittsburgh Pirates OF Travis Snider (toe) is expected to return next month. He spent a week in a walking boot and received a platelet-rich plasma injection and is now taking swings and doing running drills. Snider made some mechanical tweaks to his swing before the All-Star break and continues to tinker.
Fantasy Tip: Snider might not find much playing time when he returns, however, now that Andrew Lambo is receiving playing time in right field. As a result, his ownership should be limited to NL-only leagues.

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Travis Snider (toe) took batting practice on Tuesday, Aug. 13, for the first time since landing on the disabled list in late July. He also had a "frisky" workout in the outfield.
Fantasy Tip: What got into that cat? Whatever it is, it may not be enough to play often if Andrew Lambo takes off. Lambo's questionable plate discipline may keep the door open for Snider and Jose Tabata in the long run, but Lambo has the kind of pop that the Bucs really want in there regularly.

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Jose Tabata (hamstring) left the game early with a left hamstring injury Wednesday, May 1, and he will have an MRI exam Thursday, May 2.
Fantasy Tip: An extended absence or a trip to the disabled list for Tabata would probably mean more playing time for Travis Snider. However, the Pirates could elect to recall Jerry Sands to platoon with Snider. Stay tuned on the severity of Tabata's injury.
