BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Not on most prospect radars before last season, Snyder's complete dominance of lefty hitters in Double-A put him there. He held them to .146/.198/.197, striking them out in 33 percent of their PAs, and with a blend of some deception, a good fastball, and an effective breaking pitch, he could be a big-league LOOGY right now. That's certainly what the Rangers think, having added him via the Rule 5 draft (using the Orioles' pick as part of the Millwood trade). Snyder will be given every opportunity to stick, and used carefully, should be able to handle it.
2009 The younger brother of former Indians prospect Brad, Ball State product Ben Snyder throws in the high 80s with a good change and slider, pounds the zone, and could be anything from a number-five starter to a LOOGY.
2008 Ben Snyder joined Sosa and Pucetas by posting excellent numbers on that Augusta team. Like Pucetas, Snyder is more performance than projection.
