YearComment
2009 Designated for assignment early on, Kyle Snyder never did much of anything at Pawtucket to inspire a recall, a bad sign for a veteran pitcher. Minor league free agency most likely brings his time with the Red Sox to a close.
2008 The definition of a low-leverage reliever, Snyder made 36 of his 46 appearances when the Red Sox were up at least four runs or down at least two. He'll be back for more of the same in 2008. There's nothing to indicate he can move up to a more important role.
2007 It`s tempting to upbraid the Sox for installing a guy who couldn`t crack the Royals rotation as a stopgap at a time when the outcome of Boston`s season wasn`t a foregone conclusion. But despite the grisly ERA and home run rate, Snyder`s strikeout rate and K/BB ratio suggest more going on than a simple case of the Sucks. Though 2004 labrum surgery cost him velocity, his sinking fastball can still top 90, and he has a decent changeup and a slow curveball (68 to 71 MPH) to boot. Fatigue and exposure appear to be issues (pitches 1 to 30: .245/.304/.443; pitches 31 to 100: .389/.435/.611), suggesting he`s worth a shot in the bullpen.
2006 Snyder had pretty much the best-case scenario for labrum surgery in the spring of 2004: a pristine operation by shoulder specialist Dr. Craig Morgan, a 12-month rehab that proceeded without a hitch, and no recurrence of shoulder problems after his return. Even then, he lost five miles per hour on his fastball, and without the separation in velocity between his fastball and a curveball he can throw for strikes, there`s not much left here but to hope he might one day be a decent swingman. Snyder is another one of the Royals` pitch-to-contact guys that suffers from the defense behind him.
2004 After having his career derailed by elbow problems almost from the moment he was drafted, Snyder came down with a shoulder ailment just as he was establishing himself in the majors. Life isn't fair. He had a minor arthroscopic clean-up after the season, and should be ready for spring training. Even before the injury, Snyder was more of a finesse pitcher than his 6' 9" frame and first-round pedigree would have you believe, so he can't afford to lose anything more off his fastball.
