Snider Back in Lineup after Brief Rest
However, it appeared the long stretch of games took a toll on the right fielder. He began May going just 4-for-19 so the club decided to give the outfielder some time off.
"The coaching staff gave me some days off," Snider said Wednesday after going 0-for-4 in his first game back after sitting out three days.
Snider said there was nothing seriously wrong, and his back was not acting up again.
"The back is fine. I had played 25 straight games. They felt I needed some time off."
Despite batting .174 this month Snider is still hitting .353 on the season, and is second in the Midwest League in batting average.
