Snyder designated for assignment

Though the Red Sox didn’t make an official announcement this afternoon, Kyle Snyder confirmed to the Globe that he has been designated for assignment to make room for Josh Beckett on the 25-man roster.

Snyder is out of options, so he cannot be sent to Triple A.

He did not want to speak further this afternoon, though he did say he would talk to the media tomorrow. He walked around the clubhouse, saying good bye to David Aardsma, and heading over to talk to Jason Varitek before leaving the room.

The reliever came in after Clay Buchholz in today’s game, going 1/3 of an inning, giving up two earned runs and two walks.

Beckett will start tomorrow’s game against the Blue Jays in his return from a back injury suffered in spring training.
