Snow was reassigned to minor league camp Friday. The right-hander had tossed 3.1 perfect innings in spring training, with four strikeouts and one walk, and comes off a 2.83 ERA in 54 innings (61 strikeouts, 15 walks) combined with Double-A Jackson and Triple-A Tacoma in the Mariners system last season. Snow will probably settle in with Triple-A Colorado Springs initially, though that hitter-friendly environment may throw a big obstacle in the way of him posting solid numbers.
Snow has pitched 2.1 scoreless innings so far this spring, allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out two. The 28-year-old was held out of early spring games with a back/hip issue, but it seems he is back to normal now that he has three game appearances under his belt. He's spent his career in the minors, and posted a combined 2.83 ERA in 54 innings between Double-A and Triple-A last season. Snow is competing for a spot in the Brewers bullpen, but he'll likely find himself back in the minors to start the season.
Snow has not been pitching in spring games because of a lower back/hip issue, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The good news here is that Snow is close to pitching again, but he may not see game action for quite some time. The right-hander posted a combined 2.83 ERA over 54 innings in the minors last season.
The Mariners cut 10 players on Sunday. LHP Danny Hultzen, LHP Mike Kickham and outfielder Julio Morban were all optioned to Triple-A. Hultzen didn't give up a run in one hitless inning this spring. Kickham walked four but didn't give up an earned run in 3.1 innings. Morban hit .111 this spring. Reassigned to minor league camp were RHP Sam Gaviglio (7.71 spring ERA), Stephen Landazuri (0.00 ERA in 2.2 innings) and Forrest Snow (12.00 ERA), outfielder Jordy Lara (.231 spring average) and catchers Steven Baron (0-for-1), Mike Dowd (2-for-4) and Tyler Marlette (3-for-5).
