Description: Chris Snyder (back) could resume baseball activities as soon as tomorrow. SOURCE: MLBLOGS

Description: Chris Snyder has been traded to Pittsburgh, pending league approval. SOURCE: STEVE GILBERT ON TWITTER
Insight: The final terms of the deal are not yet known but this seems like another bad idea by the Pirates. Snyder can fill in for Ryan Doumit for now but he will eventually be a really expensive second catcher on a low payroll club. Hopefully Arizona is picking up a lot of his contract.

Description: Snyder, returning from a lower back strain, was to make his final rehab appearance at Triple-A Reno on Monday night, according to the Associated Press.
