D’Backs Still Looking To Trade Snyder, Ojeda

The Diamondbacks are still looking to trade catcher Chris Snyder and infielder Augie Ojeda, reports Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic.

Piecoro says Snyder has looked healthy this spring, after having back surgery in September.  The Blue Jays called off a Snyder-Lyle Overbay swap in November because of concerns about the catcher's back.  Snyder is owed a hefty $11.25MM over the next two years.  According to Piecoro, the Brewers have shown interest in Snyder.  Milwaukee currently has Gregg Zaun and George Kottaras behind the dish.  They're facing a pitching roster crunch, and the D'Backs could use another arm.

Ojeda, owed $825K this year and under team control through 2011, would obviously be easier to move.  Piecoro says Ojeda became available once Tony Abreu demonstrated the ability to play shortstop.  The Rangers probably aren't a fit anymore, having acquired Gregorio Petit today.
