Wrist sidelines red-hot Snider

Wrist sidelines red-hot Snider

|
TORONTO -- Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston would have loved nothing more than to keep Travis Snider and his hot bat in the lineup on Saturday against the Rangers. Unfortunately for Toronto, a sore right wrist forced Gaston to sit the young outfielder.

"[Snider] strained his wrist a little bit on a swing last night," Gaston said on Saturday morning. "Hopefully, he's going to be back [on Sunday]."

A quick return for Snider would be great news for the Blue Jays, who have benefited from his recent performance at the plate. Over his past 14 games, Snider has hit .385 with four home runs, eight doubles, 11 runs scored and 11 RBIs.

With his regular right fielder temporarily out of the lineup, Gaston moved left fielder Fred Lewis to right and gave designated hitter Adam Lind a start in left. Randy Ruiz served as DH on Saturday.
