Left fielder Travis Snider received three at-bats at extended spring training on Saturday afternoon. Snider is currently on the seven-day disabled list with Triple-A Las Vegas because of a jammed right wrist. There is no immediate timeframe for his return, but his plate appearances in Florida were a step in the right direction.
"He came through it fine," Farrell said. "Three at-bats, DH, there was no report that he was sore or tender afterwards. He's in the process of getting back into game shape."
First baseman David Cooper was in the No. 5 spot in the order for Sunday afternoon's series finale against Boston. The second-year infielder entered play against the Red Sox hitting .310 with one home run and three RBIs in eight games this season. Center fielder Colby Rasmus was dropped to the seventh spot in the lineup.
