Snyder likely to start season on DL
General Manager Neal Huntington said after Sunday’s game that Catcher Chris Snyder is “very probable” to start the season on the disabled list.
With Snyder most likely on the DL, that means Ryan Doumit and Jason Jaramillo will be the teams two catchers.
Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports that the club did not specify as to whom will play the most games behind the plate.
This also means that John Bowker would make the club as the fifth outfielder (Bowker can also play first base).
Snyder missed two weeks this spring with back issues and is not expected to be out long.
