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.

I’d love to see the Cubs get these two.

Who in their right mind would not only give Snyder that kind of deal, but who would give someone up to receive a guy who hits .200 and still has 2yr/11.25MM left?

The Brewers make no sense, I think the guy is remembering them “showing interest” probably a year ago. Not only does Milwaukee not have the salary space to add Snyder’s contract, but they are already crowded behind the plate with Zaun/Kottaras and Salome/Lucroy in the minors.

I’ll give Suppan and eat part of his salary. Than the crew can feast on Suppan instead of having to watch him pitch for Milwaukee.

ill trade you Aaron harang for Chris snyder but the d’backs take maybe 3 million of the contract to take it down to 2 year 8.25 million. would that be a fair trade or no?

Wouldn’t be shocked to see Snyder in Seattle before all is said and done.

The Rangers should have tried to acquire Augie Ojeda. Brandon McCarthy for Augie Ojeda would have been nice.
