Snyder, the No. 13 overall pick in the 2005 draft by the Orioles, has played in 56 career games with the Orioles and Rangers, hitting .276/.324/.418. Though primarily a first baseman, Snyder has played first, third, left and right field as well as catcher. The 26-year-old played a career-high 40 games last year for the Rangers, hitting .277/.309/.446 with three homers in 69 plate appearances. He was granted his release from the Rangers last week.

Snyder is cousins with Red Sox minor league pitcher Madison Younginer, who will open the season in Single-A Greenville.
