Sarah Green for mlbtraderumors.com and of UmpBump.com summarizes the designation of Kyle Snyder well.

The move makes sense for Boston, since they have a better long-reliever/emergency-starter/mop-up man/Manny-Ramirez's-stable-pony option in Julian Tavarez...The Red Sox now have 10 days to release Snyder, trade him, or put him on waivers.

So where will Snyder go now? It's hard to say---at this point in his career (he's 30) there's not a lot of upside anymore. I don't see another major-league club making room for him on their roster, so a trade seems unlikely. The probable outcome, in my view, is Snyder consenting to a minor league assignment after he clears waivers.

I agree with Green that Snyder will clear waivers since he is overpaid. But he could refuse the assignment to RI and find a spot on the Marlins, O's, A's, and Giants - a.k.a the teams that know they don't have a shot at October baseball. Synder will help save their young arms.
