Brian Snyder Report

Brian Snyder, 3B, Oakland A's
Drafted 26th Overall, 2003 Draft, Stetson U.
Bats R/Throws R
22 YO, 6'0", 195 lbs

He had a good season for Kane County, but I'm disappointed that he wasn't promoted to the Modesto because it would be nice to see how he would do in High-A.

His Midwest League numbers ended at .311/.421/.484 with 18 doubles, 3 triples, 13 home runs, 69 walks, and 82 K's in 366 AB. I'd like to see more power, but the average and the walks are there. He looks a lot like Mark Teahen to me.

His defense at third is very good. His speed is marginal. All in all, he looks to be a very similar story to Teahen. He has all the same strengths and weaknesses, and he has the same Eric Chavez shaped roadblock looming ahead of him. He'll be trade bait soon.
