    Default Pirates Acquire C Chris Snyder and SS Pedro Ciriaco

    In a weird transaction that Dejan didn't even deem worthy of its own story...

    "...Late Friday night, the Pirates reached agreement on a trade with Arizona for catcher Chris Snyder, according to a source in Phoenix.

    Snyder, 29, is batting .231 with 10 home runs, which is close to his career average of .233. Defensively, he has thrown out 30 percent of runners trying to steals and has been charged with only six errors in parts of seven seasons with the Diamondbacks.

    It is expected that the trade will involve a minimal return on the Pirates' end, mostly because Arizona is eager to shed salary and almost surely will need to pick up some of Snyder's guaranteed pay: He is due $1.7 million the rest of this season, $5.75 million next season, and there is a club option worth $6.75 million for 2012 with a $750,000 buyout.

    The source in Phoenix said Major League Baseball's approval of the cash transaction is all that has kept the deal from formal completion.

    It remains to be seen how the Pirates would use Snyder, as the current catchers are longtime starter Ryan Doumit, currently out with a concussion, and Erik Kratz, who further distinguished himself defensively in the 1-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals early this morning by throwing out all three runners who tried to steal.

    One industry source said early this morning that the Pirates might flip Snyder as part of another trade, but that was not confirmed by anyone directly involved."

    See you later Jarmillo and Doumit. Nice knowing you.

    Kratz and Snyder will be platooned. Good pick-up.

    Of course what the heck are the Pirates doing adding salary??!?!?!?!?!!?!?

    Just speculation here but after I just heard Clement and Diaz were called up from AAA I'm thinking: Stephen Drew and Snyder coming here for Cedeno and Garrett Jones but hopefully Ryan Church..lol.
    Arizona is cutting costs and Drew is second year arbitration eligible.

    If we got Drew that would be a major crazy win.

    Crosby and Church would be a bit much IMHO for Snyder.

    9:42am: The D'Backs will also receive reliever D.J. Carrasco, reports MLB.com's Steve Gilbert. Carrasco has $336K plus incentives left on his contract this year, and he's under team control through 2012. He should be a useful piece in what figures to be a revamped bullpen for Arizona next year.

    I was thinking of this from the D-Backs fan perspective.

    Think about trading your otherwise regualr Catcher for two bench scrubs and a middle-Reliever?
