Orioles Outright Chris Snyder

FRIDAY: Snyder has been optioned to Triple-A, tweets Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, meaning that he has cleared waivers and been outrighted off the 40-man roster.

TUESDAY: The Orioles have designated Chris Snyder for assignment, MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports (Twitter link).  The catcher's contract allows him to refuse an assignment to Triple-A and opt out, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun explains, so Snyder and his representatives at LSW Baseball are checking out the market to see if he can find a Major League job elsewhere.  If he can't, Snyder will accept the assignment and remain with the Orioles organization.

Snyder was acquired by the O's on April 28 to serve as a backup catcher while Taylor Teagarden was on the disabled list and thus was expendable when Teagarden was activated today.  With Matt Wieters locking down the everyday job in Baltimore, Snyder has only played in six games and received 20 plate appearances this season.  Snyder has a career .224/.328/.383 line over 10 seasons with the Orioles, Astros, Pirates and Diamondbacks.
