Snell gave up six earned runs in a loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday.
We were left with this offering from the Associated Press:
Snell, who came down with a severe case of the flu during the final week of spring training, said he had his first full meal on Thursday night. The illness left him incapacitated for several days.
"I've never felt like that in my life," Snell said before Friday's game was postponed. "I really got sick. That was the worst."
That might have explained Tuesday's game.
Was he sick all of 2008?
