MLB trade review: #Mets acquire ex major leaguer Snider
The New York Mets have acquired OF Travis Snider from the Texas Rangers in exchange for cash considerations.
Snider, who hasn't played in the majors since 2015, is a veteran depth option in the minors. He is having a good year at AAA, and he can help some of the younger guys. He is a solid fielder, so that could come in handy eventually. Snider was assigned to the Las Vegas 51s (AAA).
Snider, 29, has a .294 batting average, nine homers, 44 RBIs and two steals in 413 Plate Appearances for Round Rock (AAA) this year. In his eight year MLB career for the Baltimore Orioles, Pittsburgh Pirates and Toronto Blue Jays, Snider has a .244 bating average, 54 homers, 212 RBIs and 22 stole bases in 1971 Plate Appearances.
