Royals signed LHP Ryan Snare to a minor league contract.
Snare, who served a few brief stints in the majors with the Rangers two years ago, won't be a candidate to make the Royals. He's decent depth for Triple-A Omaha, but that's about it. Tue, Feb 21, 2006 05:16:00 PM

The Rangers released LHP Ryan Snare yesterday.

Snare, who was acquired from the Marlins in the Ugueth Urbina trade in 2003, had a 6.38 ERA at Triple-A Oklahoma.

LHP Ryan Snare cleared waivers yesterday.

Snare was designated for assignment last week. He has been a bit of a disappointment after being acquired in an offseason deal with the Marlins and is a longshot to make the Rangers' staff next season.

Rangers optioned LHP Ryan Snare to Triple-A Oklahoma.

Snare allowed four runs in three innings yesterday in his major league debut. He could have been kept, but the Rangers wanted a fresh arm.

Rangers recalled LHP Ryan Snare from Triple-A Oklahoma.

Snare's 4.12 ERA for Oklahoma wasn't bad, but he had given up 133 hits and 38 walks in 109 1/3 IP. He's not ready to start games in the majors, so the Rangers will use him in middle relief for now.

Ryan Snare will likely be called up from Triple-A Oklahoma today to take Jeff Nelson's place on the 25-man roster.

Snare will stay in Texas as long as he pitches well or until one of the Rangers' injured starters (Mickey Callaway, Chan Ho Park or Juan Dominguez) is ready to be activated off the disabled list. With seven shutout innings last night, Mike Bacsik gave himself a little job security.

Instead of giving Friday's start to Ryan Snare or John Hudgins, the Rangers will call up Sam Narron from Triple-A Oklahoma City to pitch against the A's.

Narron has been a very steady Class AAA starter this season, posting a 6-1 record with a 4.01 ERA for the Redhawks. He has, however, allowed 70 hits in 60 2/3 innings, and his strikeout totals are quite low (19). If you are thinking of picking up Narron to bolster your fantasy pitching staff, pass for the moment.

The Rangers will likely call up Ryan Snare or John Hudgins from Triple-A Oklahoma to make this Friday's start.

Texas could also acquire a pitcher in a trade who may be able to start Friday. John Wasdin, who was scheduled to make the start, was designated for assignment yesterday.

Rangers optioned LHP Ryan Snare to Triple-A Oklahoma.

Snare didn't make an appearance in five days with the Rangers.

Manager Buck Showalter said recently recalled LHP Ryan Snare could be in the mix for a spot in the Texas starting rotation.

With Colby Lewis on the DL, Joaquin Benoit will probably get the start on Saturday. Snare may get a chance after that.

Rangers recalled LHP Ryan Snare from Triple-A Oklahoma.

Snare, acquired along with Adrian Gonzalez from Florida in the Ugueth Urbina trade, had a 2.61 ERA in his first two starts for Oklahoma. The Rangers will use him in middle relief for now.

Ryan Snare is likely to spend the final month of the season in the Texas rotation.

Snare is expected to replace Juan Dominguez. The left-hander is 3-4 with a 2.86 ERA for Triple-A Oklahoma since being acquired in the Ugueth Urbina trade.
Wed, Aug 20, 2003 01:16:00 PM

Ryan Snare was acquired by the Rangers from the Marlins in a four-player deal.

Snare, a second-round pick in 2000, is a decent lefty prospect. He had a 3.67 ERA in 18 starts for Double-A Carolina. Some see him as a bottom-of-the-rotation starter, others as a solid reliever. Since he's going to the Rangers, he should get every opportunity to remain a starting pitcher.
Fri, Jul 11, 2003 07:13:00 PM

Marlins' prospect Ryan Snare combined with relievers Steve Kent and Ryan Baker on a seven-inning no-hitter for the Double-A Carolina Mudcats.

Snare pitched the first five innings, walking three and striking out six, in brisk temperatures with wind-chill readings in the 20s.
