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.

Braves designated INF Brandon Snyder for assignment.

Snyder hit just .182/.206/.515 across 34 plate appearances for Atlanta. He should clear waivers.

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.

Brandon Snyder has signed with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs of the independent Atlantic League.

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.

Red Sox reassigned INF Brandon Snyder to minor league camp.

Red Sox re-signed INF Brandon Snyder to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Snyder was outrighted off Boston's 40-man roster in early November but is back now on a non-guaranteed minor league deal. The 26-year-old hit .180/.212/.360 with two home runs this year in 27 major league games.
Thu, Nov 21, 2013 08:50:00 AM

Mon, Nov 4, 2013 05:43:00 PM

Red Sox activated INF Brandon Snyder from the 15-day disabled list.

Snyder has been recovered from his elbow injury for a few extra days already, but the Red Sox wanted to wait until rosters expanded to officially activate him. He'll provide an extra bat off the bench for the stretch run.
