Astros Designate Angel Sanchez For Assignment

The Astros designated infielder Angel Sanchez for assignment, the team announced. The move creates roster space for catcher Chris Snyder.

Sanchez, 28, appeared in 110 games for the Astros in 2011, playing shortstop, second and third. He posted a .240/.305/.285 line in 328 plate appearances. He barely missed the super two cutoff and will be arbitration eligible for the first time next offseason if he spends enough time on an MLB roster in 2012.
