Arbitration: Pirates and Travis Snider agree on a deal

Travis Snider is the latest name to drop out of the arbitration hearings, as the Pittsburgh Pirates have reached a deal with the outfielder.

Snider, who will be going into his age-26 season, will earn nearly twice what he earned in 2013 ($505,000). He was traded by the Blue Jays to Pittsburgh for reliever Brad Lincoln.

In his first full season with the Bucs, Snider had a .215/.281/.333 slash line while manning left and right field as the Pirates went on to their first winning season in two and a half decades.
