Snyder signed a minor league contract with the Nationals on Sunday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Snyder enjoyed one of the best performances of his career at Triple-A Gwinnett in 2016, where he hit .327/.358/.442 across 43 games. Unfortunately, his solid bat didn't follow him up to the majors, where he put up a bleak .239 batting average over 37 games (46 at-bats). The 29-year-old's chance to work his way up to the majors with the Nationals will likely come courtesy of his versatility in the field, as he's played the outfield as well as first and third base throughout his career.

Snyder was designated for assignment by the Braves but opted to become a free agent Tuesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

EDGE Analysis

Snyder, a former first-round pick, put up a solid .327/.358/.442 slash line with Triple-A Gwinnett, but his success didn't translate to the big leagues, leading the Braves to send him off the 40-man roster. The 29-year-old has shown some flashes of being a potent hitter, and given his decent defensive versatility, he'll look to garner a bigger role in another organization rather than spend another year in the Braves minor league system.

Snyder was recalled to the majors Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Following the departure of Jeff Francoeur in Wednesday's trade, Snyder will take the vacant spot on the major league roster. He's struggled in limited action in the big leagues this year, but the 28-year-old has excelled with Triple-A Gwinnett, posting a .327/.358/.442 slash line in 43 games this season.

Snyder was designated for assignment by the Braves on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Snyder was given a brief opportunity to serve as a reserve infielder in Atlanta, but he was unable to take advantage in limited at-bats, posting a .206 on-base percentage since his June 2 call-up. He'll now get the boot from the 40-man roster to allow the team to add some bullpen depth.

EDGE Analysis

Snyder is hitting .267 with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored in 11 games this season and will make just his second start of the season for Atlanta. The 29-year-old will have a tough matchup with Mets' ace Noah Syndergaard who has a 2.08 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 15 games this season.
