January 8, 2019
Snyder signed a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with the Nationals on Tuesday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Snyder had a brief stint in the majors with the Rays last season, but has otherwise seen minimal MLB action since 2013. The 32-year-old did manage a .907 OPS over 47 plate appearances with the Braves in 2016, but 10 of his 11 hits went for extra bases, which was clearly unsustainable. Snyder otherwise has a career .240/.276/.455 slash line in the majors and will most likely serve as organizational depth for Washington's infield.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Snyder is a first baseman/third baseman who found his way to the big leagues last summer when Will Middlebrooks struggled early. He had a couple of big hits with Boston, but was an obvious liability in the field and it became apparent Boston couldn't contend much longer with him getting regular at-bats. At 27, he's well past his prospect expiration date. The former first-round draft pick (13th overall in 2005) came up as a catcher and was then turned into a first baseman after a shoulder injury. He's signed a minor league contract and will return to the Red Sox organization, with a resumption of his corner infielder role at Triple-A Pawtucket likely.
Snyder earned the last spot on the Texas bench to begin the year, beating out stalwarts Conor Jackson and Brad Hawpe, with the hope that he'd serve as the occasional lefty-masher off the bench. The logjam at 1B/DH for Texas didn't afford him many opportunities, however, and Texas' earlier than expected departure from the postseason didn't give him a few at-bats against lefty relievers late in meaningful games either. Re-signed by the Rangers to a minor league deal, Snyder will try to carve out a similar role in 2013.
Snyder earned a second MLB cup of coffee in 2011, but he remained mediocre in the minor leagues. For the second straight season, Snyder posted an OPS below .740. If he wants to cut it in the majors, he'll have to improve. He'll get another shot at Triple-A in 2012 and an offseason trade to Texas from Baltimore may be a nice change of scenery and will improve his home park if he reaches the majors.
Snyder, the O's first-round pick in 2005, hasn't lived up to expectations as he's climbed the minor league ladder, never quite hitting for the power that one would expect from a corner infielder. His 2010 season at Triple-A Norfolk was especially stagnant in the power department as he slugged just .407 in 339 at-bats. Derrek Lee was signed as a free agent during the winter and Snyder no longer projects to be the Orioles' first baseman of the near future, but rather a role player off the bench if he even makes the big league squad.
Snyder tore right through Double-A pitchers before he was tested in Triple-A. He had a successful run in the Arizona Fall League, but Baltimore should have a veteran in house to take the job this spring. Make no mistake that Snyder is the first baseman of the future, but his bat will have to impress because his defense is anything but stellar. If he can get off on the right foot, Snyder could be called up before summer, but if he struggles he might not be heard from until September.
Snyder took a step forward in 2008, hitting .315 with 13 home runs and 80 RBI in High-A. More importantly, the Orioles' first-round pick in 2005 stayed healthy. He will start the 2009 season in Double-A and could be in Baltimore by 2010, though his future position is yet to be determined.
Many of the elite prospects in the Orioles farm system had disappointing campaigns, and Snyder is no exception, having moved to first base because of a shoulder injury suffered in 2006. As a catcher, his .283/.354/.422 line looks pretty good, but as a first baseman, it's pretty run-of-the-mill. Snyder will have to make strides next summer, presumably at High-A, to stay as anything near an elite prospect.
A first-round pick in the 2005 draft, the 19-year-old Snyder impressed in rookie ball in the second half of the season. Catchers tend to take a longer time to reach the majors than other positional players, and the Orioles signed Ramon Hernandez to a four-year contract this offseason, so despite his success Snyder won't see regular time in the majors until 2010 at the earliest.
