Astros add catcher Snyder with one-year deal
Although Chris Snyder has called Arizona home the last few years, his heart has never left Houston. That's what made signing with the Astros -- the team he grew up cheering for as a kid -- nothing short of a dream come true.
The Astros on Friday signed the Houston native to a one-year contract with a mutual option for 2013, bolstering depth at catcher. Starting catcher Jason Castro won't be ready for the start of Spring Training after undergoing surgery last month to remove a bone in his foot.
The Astros will have to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
