Apparently, the Kyle Snyder experiment is over. To make room for Reggie Sanders and Joe Mays, the Royals DFA’d Snyder and Devon Lowry.
Snyder was a first round draft pick in 1999. He’s shown promise his entire career but has had injury trouble. His frail arm has eventually caused the downfall of his career. The Royals have given him plenty of chances, but each time he ended up hurt.
Royals GM Allard Baird says they will send Snyder to Omaha if he clears waivers and he doesn’t intend to release him. But it’s clear to me that Synder’s run near its end.
