Dodgers Sign Ian Snell

Ian Snell has ended his short-lived retirement and signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America (on Twitter).

Snell retired after the Cardinals sent him to minor league camp in Spring Training. The Cardinals officially released him and before long, he was considering a return. The 29-year-old posted a 3.76 ERA with 7.7 K/9 in 208 innings for the 2007 Pirates and was rewarded with a three-year, $8.6MM extension. However, from 2008-10, Snell posted a 5.31 ERA with 6.3 K/9 and 5.0 BB/9 for the Pirates and Mariners.
