Blue Jays Trade Travis Snider to Pirates for Brad Lincoln

July 31, 2012

Red Sox foe Travis Snider is heading to the National League, where he won’t be facing Boston quite as often.

Snider is headed to Pittsburgh for a pennant race with the Pirates, who are looking to add some offense in support of superstar Andrew McCutcheon. In exchange, Toronto will receive 27-year-old pitcher Brad Lincoln.

Lincoln is 4-2 with a 2.73 ERA out of the bullpen this year for the Buccos, while Snider has only appeared in nine major league games for the Jays in 2012.
