Injuries have derailed what was a pretty solid career for Chris Snyder and the 32-year-old catcher must not have drawn much interest as a free agent because Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that he signed a minor-league deal with the Nationals.

Washington was already facing a playing time crunch behind the plate with Kurt Suzuki and Wilson Ramos, so there isn’t much opportunity for Snyder to crack the roster and carve out a role unless Ramos struggles to come back from the knee injury that ended his 2012 season.
