Blue Jays, Bucs swap Snider, Lincoln
The Pirates and Blue Jays completed a trade late Monday night, with Pittsburgh acquiring outfielder Travis Snider and Toronto getting right-hander Brad Lincoln.

A first-round selection of the Blue Jays in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, Snider hit .250 with three home runs and eight RBIs in nine games for Toronto this season. In 61 games with Triple-A Las Vegas, Snider had a .325 average, with 13 home runs and 57 RBIs.

Lincoln, who moved between the Pirates' starting rotation and bullpen this season, is 4-2 with a 2.73 ERA in 28 games, five of which were starts. The right-hander has allowed 51 hits in 59 1/3 innings to go along with 60 strikeouts this season. Lincoln was selected by the Pirates in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft with the fourth-overall pick.
