Is he going to beat out Garrett Jones next year? He hit .259 in semi-regular duty in August, he’s hit .292 in 6 starts and some pinch hitting in September. Very small sample sizes, to be sure, but he hit .205, .184 and .189 in April, May in June as a semi-regular. A guy who can only play first and pinch hit isn’t that valuable, especially if he only plays against lefties. The Pirates consistently don’t overpay for YOUNG bench guys, just old ones.

He has played pretty good ball…especially recently. .788 OPS and solid defense. Better than any other 1B on the 40 man.

Out of all of the players with between two and three years of service time, Super Two players are the top 22% of players based on service time. For next year, the projected 2.139 cutoff means that anyone with two years, 139 days or more will be eligible for an additional year of arbitration, which replaces what would have been their final league minimum year.

He’s OPS’ing .788, exactly in line with his two productive years in Florida. He’s producing right at a 20HR 75 RBI pace.

Snider seems to be very poorly conditioned, that’s fixable if he is willing.
