Promoted OF Brad Snyder to Kinston (A+) from Lake County (A-)

With the success of Michael Aubrey and Ryan Garko this year, 2003 first round pick Brad Snyder has quietly put up pretty good numbers in his first full professional season. He’s not as accomplished offensively as Aubrey or Garko, but he plays, at least for now, at a more valuable position. I don’t think he’ll shoot through the system that fast, but he’s someone to keep an eye on.

Promoted OF Juan Valdes to Lake County (A-) from Burlington (R-)

Valdes was also selected in the 2003 draft (5th round), and is a toolsy outfielder with upside. He’s really young to be playing in Lake County (he just turned 19), so I’m expecting some initial struggles the rest of this year, but then again, he was a bit too young for an Advanced Rookie League as well. His numbers from Burlington:

134 AB, .269/.364/.381, 4 2B, 4 3B, 1 HR, 21 SB, 3 CS
