Snyder is in the lineup and batting seventh for Monday's game against the Mets. 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.
Snyder was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Snyder missed a few weeks in early-May due to a hamstring injury, but has since returned and hit safely in 10 of the last 11 games for the Gwinnett Braves, with five multi-hit efforts along the way. He'll take the roster spot of Gordan Beckham, who was placed on the DL Thursday due to a hamstring strain.
The Red Sox announced Thursday they optioned infielder Brock Holt and pitcher Rubby De La Rosa to Triple-A Pawtucket. They also reassigned first baseman Brandon Snyder to minor-league camp.
Third baseman Brandon Snyder signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox Wednesday. The deal includes an invitation to spring training. Snider got 50 at-bats with the Red Sox last season, hitting .180 with two homers. He hit .261 with 10 homers in 249 at-bats at Triple-A Pawtucket.
The Boston Red Sox made a series of official roster moves on Monday as they removed several players from the 60-day disabled list. Relief pitcher Andrew Bailey, who had both his labrum and shoulder capsule repaired in July, comes off the DL. He's expected to be sidelined a minimum of 12 months while recovering from the procedure. Outfielder Ryan Kalish missed last season due to a shoulder injury and underwent cervical fusion surgery on his back in August. He could be playing with a different team next season. In other moves, the Red Sox sent infielder Brandon Snyder and outfielder Quintin Berry outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.
