WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) -Cleveland optioned former first-round pick Brad Snyder to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday as the Indians trimmed their major league roster to 36.
Right-handers Matt Ginter and Jeff Harris, lefty Rich Rundles, catchers Armando Camacaro and David Wallace, and infielders Aaron Herr and Danny Sandoval were reassigned to the minor league camp.
Snyder, an outfielder taken in the 2003 draft, batted only .194 (7-for-36) with two homers and three RBIs in 14 games this spring, striking out 10 times. The 25-year-old has struck out 595 times in 524 minor league games.
Harris and Ginter, signed this past offseason to minor league contracts, each worked 7 1-3 innings in relief. Harris had a 2.45 ERA and Ginter had a 3.68 ERA.
Herr, a first-round pick of the Atlanta Braves in 2000 and son of former big league infielder Tommy Herr, was 6-for-20 with one homer and four RBIs in 15 games.
