Six weeks after signing Chris Snyder to a minor-league contract the Nationals released the veteran catcher and according to James Wagner of the Washington Post he immediately inked a new deal with the Angels.
Snyder always seemed like an odd fit for the Nationals because if healthy Wilson Ramos was assured of being paired with Kurt Suzuki behind the plate, leaving little chance of Snyder returning to the majors in Washington.
He has more of an opportunity with the Angels because Hank Conger is really struggling with his throwing this spring and they’re looking for alternatives to back up Chris Iannetta. Considering his recent injuries and lack of production Snyder may not be a particularly good option, but his odds of a comeback increased with the team switch.
