Snyder nearly had to have his right big toe amputated after a serious wreck in the summer of 2001, which would have likely ended his baseball career. He fully recovered and hit .389-13-57 as a sophomore, raising expectations heading into this spring. He posted nearly identical numbers this year and shows more power from his lean, athletic 6-foot-2, 200-pound frame. He made an adjustment to erase a loop from his stroke, and takes a more direct, fluid path to the ball. While he is a patient hitter, he occasionally lacks pitch recognition. He hits with good balance and bat speed, and shows the ability to turn on the ball for power. Snyder earned a tremendous reputation for his work habits while coming back from his injuries. An average runner with good instincts and an average arm, he profiles as a prototypical right fielder in the Paul O'Neill mold. He has attracted mid-first-round attention. Snyder's younger brother Ben, a lefthander at Bellevue (Ohio) HS, might be drafted in the top 20 rounds.
