Rangers News: Chris Snyder retires

By on 5:40 PM

Veteran catcher Chris Snyder has elected to retire, according to Fox Sports Southwest's Anthony Andro.
Snyder was signed by the Rangers as catching depth when Giovanni Soto went down with an injury. As Andro notes he was playing for Triple-A Round Rock. 

The 33-year-old played 10 seasons between four clubs. He broke in to the majors with Arizona and played 6 1/2 seasons in the desert before a mid-season trade in 2010 to Pittsburgh. Snyder played the rest of 2012 and all of 2011 with the Pirates. He signed consecutive one-year deals with Houston and Baltimore after that.

Last season with the Orioles, Snyder picked up two hits in 20 at-bats in limited time down the stretch. He retires a career .224 hitter with 77 home runs. He was hitting .238 in 21 at-bats for Round Rock.
