Red Sox Reach Terms W/ Snyder

Kyle Snyder's marked improvement from one year to the next has now paid its dividends. He and the Red Sox agreed to terms on Friday on a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration and leaving Kevin Youkilis as the only arbitration-eligible Sox player still unsigned.

Just before teams and players officially traded salary figures last Friday, the Sox came to terms on a one-year contract with lefty specialist Javier Lopez, and a week later, they've done the same with Snyder.

Snyder, 30, enjoyed a breakout season with the Sox last year, thriving in his new role as a middle reliever. He finished with a 2-3 record and 3.81 ERA. -

Youkilis is asking for $3.7 million, but the Red Sox only want to dish out $2.5 million.
