Snider had a tremendous spring debut performing well in every aspect of the game and was a big contributor to Lansing's 6-3 victory. Snider had a pair of doubles in the victory, and a single, while also reaching base a fourth time with a walk. In total he finished his first spring training game going 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI.
Snider was not allowed to participate in batting practice until yesterday and spent the morning workouts doing some soft tossing and running. On Thursday he was cleared to step into the batting cage but worked only on his bunting in a 40 minute session. Snider clearly showed his uneasiness to lay down a proper bunt, as expected for a power hitter coming out of high school. Snider worked with the Blue Jays coaches on the fundamentals of laying down a successful bunt and his hand placement on the bat.
Despite the setback this spring, Snider is still penciled in to begin the season with the Lansing Lugnuts when they open on April 5. The 2006 1st round pick is looking to build off his tremendous rookie campaign when he batted .325 with 11 home runs and 41 runs batted in.
