Puerto Rican Winter League

After making a relief appearance on Saturday, 25-year-old lefty Ben Snyder got the start for Ponce on Monday evening. The former Giants prospect worked three shutout innings, giving up two hits and one walk. He struck out one.

Snyder spent much of his 2010 regular season as a long reliever and spot-starter at Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Oklahoma City. However, he is largely considered a lefty specialist prospect because of his funky delivery, fringy fastball, and deceptive sweeping breaking ball.
