The Nationals have agreed to sign catcher Chris Snyder to a minor league deal, ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick reports (on Twitter). LSW Baseball represents Snyder.
Snyder, who turns 32 in a week, appeared in 76 games for the Astros this past season. He posted a .176/.295/.308 batting line in 258 plate appearances, adding seven home runs. The Astros declined a $4MM option on Snyder after the regular season, choosing a $500K buyout instead.
