Nationals catcher Chris Snyder is drawing interest from teams who are looking for a backup, including the Angels, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). The Nationals are deep at the position and Snyder is likely to be sent elsewhere.
Snyder has an opt-out clause in his deal that will allow him to pursue other opportunities if he is not on the big league roster by March 24th. The 32-year-old posted a .176/.295/.308 batting line with seven homers in 258 plate appearances for the Astros last season.
The Astros declined a $4MM option on Snyder after last season, opting to pay him a $500K buyout instead.
