Rays purchased the contract of INF/OF Brandon Snyder from Triple-A Durham.
He'll replace the injured Matt Duffy (hamstring) on the active roster. Snyder spent the entire 2017 season with the Nationals' Triple-A affiliate, but he was useful in a small sample with the Braves in 2016. The 31-year-old will provide some depth between the corner infield and outfield. Apr 17 - 3:20 PM

Snyder had an .846 OPS with 23 home runs and 77 RBI in 121 games this past season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Nationals. The 31-year-old corner infielder and outfielder could find a semi-regular role in 2018 if the Rays shift into rebuilding mode.

Nationals re-assigned INF Brandon Snyder to minor league camp.

Snyder has posted an .854 OPS in Grapefruit League play, but it wasn't enough to land a bench spot. He'll provide minor league depth.

Nationals signed INF Brandon Snyder to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Snyder, who will turn 30 in a few days, has hit only .242/.279/.459 over parts of five seasons in the majors. He'll compete for an Opening Day bench spot but will probably begin 2017 in the minors.

Brandon Snyder has elected free agency.

The 29-year-old as outrighted off of the Braves 40-man roster earlier this month. He's a career .242/.279/.459 hitter with nine homers and 29 RBI over 205 plate appearances at the big league level. There's enough pop in his bat that he shouldn't have difficulty finding another opportunity.

Braves sent INF Brandon Snyder outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

He's now off the 40-man roster. Snyder hit .239/.255/.652 over 47 plate appearances for the Braves this season.

Brandon Snyder went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

Pinch-hitting for reliever Jed Bradley with two outs in the seventh inning, Snyder socked a solo homer off Seth Lugo. Unfortunately for the Braves, that barely dented the scoreboard, as they still trailed 10-2 after he rounded the bases. The 29-year-old third baseman has picked up just eight hits in 40 at-bats this season and holds no fantasy value.

Braves purchased the contract of 3B/1B Brandon Snyder from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Snyder was designated for assignment by Atlanta just a few weeks ago, but he's getting called back to fill the roster spot left vacant by Wednesday night's Jeff Francoeur trade. Snyder, 29, owns a poor .232/.272/.420 career batting line in 107 games at the MLB level.

Brandon Snyder blasted his first home run of the season as the Braves fell to the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles.

Snyder, who was called up from Triple-A on Thursday, was only in the game due to the blow-out that the Braves were facing. He made the most of his opportunity, smashing an offering from Louis Coleman over the wall in left field. It won't lead to additional playing time or fantasy value of any kind, but made for a nice afternoon for the 29-year-old.

Braves purchased the contract of INF Brandon Snyder from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Snyder will act as infield depth for Atlanta while Gordon Beckham recovers from a hamstring strain. Snyder hasn't appeared in the majors since 2013, when he batted .180/.212/.360 in 52 plate appearances for the Red Sox. He is not a fantasy-relevant player.

Braves signed INF Brandon Snyder to a minor league contract.

Snyder, 29, hasn't played in the majors since 2013 and spent a chunk of 2015 in independent ball. The Braves are rebuilding, but he's almost surely nothing more than a depth signing.

A former-first round pick the Orioles, the 28-year-old Snyder batted .206/.284/.444 with eight home runs in 141 plate appearances at Triple-A with the Red Sox last year. He owns a .243/.287/.399 batting line over 158 plate appearances in the majors.
