Diamondbacks signed OF Brad Snyder to a minor league contract.

Snyder spent all of 2012 at Triple-A with the Astros, batting .304/.375/.550 with 20 homers. The 30-year-old is merely organizational depth.

Astros signed OF Brad Snyder to a minor league contract.

Snyder posted a decent .290/.336/.465 batting line this season at the Cubs' Triple-A affiliate in Iowa. But the 29-year-old outfielder has amassed only 37 career plate appearances in the major leagues and probably won't have better luck with Houston. He was selected by the Indians in the first round of the 2003 MLB Amateur Draft.

Cubs sent OF Brad Snyder outright to Triple-A Iowa.

Snyder cleared waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend. While the 29-year-old is well past the days of being considered a top prospect, he's a useful bat to have around at the Triple-A level.

Cubs designated OF Brad Snyder for assignment.

The Cubs needed to add another reliever, so he loses his spot on the bench. Snyder picked up just one hit in nine at-bats after being called up at the end of May. He's likely to clear waivers and remain in the organization.

Cubs purchased the contract of OF Brad Snyder from Triple-A Iowa.

Snyder was mashing at Triple-A, putting up a .342/.374/.568 batting line to go along with seven home runs. He'll see the occasional start in the outfield and provide a left-handed bat off the bench.

Cubs re-signed OF Brad Snyder to a minor league contract.

He'll get a spring training invite. Snyder, 28, batted .308/.381/.568 with 25 home runs and 106 RBI with Triple-A Iowa this past season. He earned a promotion to the big leagues in September, but went 5-for-27 (.185) with a 12/1 K/BB ratio. The former top prospect is a notorious all-or-nothing hitter, so there's not much projection left.

Brad Snyder has elected to become a free agent.

Snyder, 28, was sent outright to the Triple-A level last week but refused the assignment and will test free agency instead. He turned in a stellar .308/.381/.568 batting line, 25 home runs and 106 RBI this year for the Triple-A Iowa Cubs and should find some offers on the open market.

Cubs purchased the contract of OF Brad Snyder from Triple-A Iowa.

Snyder, a former 2003 first-round pick of the Indians, batted .308/.381/.568 with 25 home runs and 106 RBI with Triple-A Iowa this season. Now 28 years old, he's no longer considered a prospect, but the call-up is well-deserved.

Triple-A Iowa's Brad Snyder suffered a broken hand on Monday.

It's a tough break for the former prospect, who is out at least four-to-six weeks. Snyder was getting his career back on track the first six weeks of the season with a .317/.351/.669 line highlighted by 12 home runs and 35 RBI in 35 games.

Cubs sent outfielder Brad Snyder outright to Triple-A Iowa.

The Cubs were just wasting Snyder's time after claiming him off waivers from the Indians last September. They certainly had no intention of giving him a chance to claim a job. Since this is his first outright assignment, he will have to report to Iowa, where he could be a starting outfielder.

Brad Snyder went 2-for-5 and hit a grand slam as the Cubs crushed the White Sox 13-0 on Saturday.

It's hard to see what use they have for him, but Snyder remains on the Cubs' 40-man roster after being claimed off waivers from the Indians last September. It'd take an injury to an outfielder to give him even a slim chance of landing a bench spot.

Cubs claimed outfielder Brad Snyder off waivers from the Indians.

There was a smidgen of hope that Snyder might yet become a useful player when he hit a respectable .263/.355/.448 in his first year in Triple-A in 2007, but he slipped to .246/.297/.426 in 411 at-bats this season. He's not someone the Cubs should keep on their 40-man roster this winter.

Indians optioned outfielder Brad Snyder to Triple-A Buffalo.

Snyder didn't make an appearance Sunday in his lone day in the majors.
Mon, Apr 28, 2008 05:00:00 PM

Indians recalled outfielder Brad Snyder from Triple-A Buffalo.

Snyder will be making his major league debut. He was hitting .236 with five doubles and four home runs in Triple-A. Snyder provides some outfield depth with Grady Sizemore hurting, but probably won't be up for long as the Indians will call up left-handed pitcher Aaron Laffey to start Monday.
