Pirates Activate Chris Snyder, Option Jaramillo

Chris Snyder has finished his rehab stint and will immediately join the Buccos. To make room on the 25 man roster backup Catcher Jason Jaramillo was optioned to Triple A Indianapolis.

Jaramillo didn't see too much time with the Pirates, working strictly as a backup catcher. He was able to get five hits in 14 at bats, and he threw out one of two would be base-stealers.

Snyder brings something this team lacks, righty pop, to the lineup. He caught 30% of would be base-stealers last season, and that is exactly what he's done over the course of his career.
