The Baltimore Orioles offense has struggled to find consistency thus far this season, and while he may not be the absolute solution, we believe that Travis Snider is deserving of more playing time for the O's.
Snider has appeared in 32 games for the Orioles this season, which sounds like a lot considering they have played 43, but he has only garnered 101 plate appearances. To put that in perspective, Adam Jones has played all 43 games and has 182 plate appearances and Caleb Joseph has played 36 games and has 131 plate appearances.
Needless to say, Snider is not getting what can be considered everyday at bats, but we think that there is an argument that he should.
One thing that helps keep an offense clicking on a consistent basis is having guys on base, thus the all important on base percentage. Jimmy Paredes leads the O's with a .374 OBP (among guys with 50 or more plate appearances) with Joseph in second at .366, but what you may be surprised to see is that Snider has the third highest OBP on the team at .356.Read more...
