Pirates sign OF Travis Snider to minor league deal, 1B/OF Hart starts rehab assignment


PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed outfielder to a minor league deal after he was released by Baltimore earlier this month.

Snider and first baseman/outfielder both joined Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday night. Hart is beginning a rehab assignment.

Snider hit .237 with three home runs and 20 RBIs in 69 games for Baltimore. He played for the Pirates the previous three seasons before being traded to the Orioles on Jan. 27 for minor league left-handers Steven Brault and Stephen Tarpley.

Hart is beginning his second rehab assignment with Indianapolis since going on the disabled list June 22 with a left shoulder impingement. He started his first rehab assignment June 30 but then ended it July 11 because of a strained right knee.

Signed as a free agent in the offseason, Hart is hitting .222 with two homers and nine RBIs in 35 games.
