The Rangers addressed one immediate concern on Tuesday afternoon.

Less than 24 hours after being released by the Washington Nationals, the Rangers signed catcher Chris Snyder to a minor league deal. Snyder will be a catcher at Triple-A to replace Robinson Chirinos, who will be on the 25-man Major League roster. Chirinos will serve as the backup to J.P. Arencibia, who is taking over for the injured Geovany Soto.

This spring, Snyder was 5-for-14 for Washington, having hit a homer and driven in 5. Over his career, the 33-year old has over 700 games behind the dish, although he only played in 9 games with the Orioles last season.
